I Don't Want to Cause No Fuss

Rochester, New York, police arrested three high school baskteball players for waiting for a school bus. The team was waiting on the sidewalk for the bus to take them to a scrimmage. An officer accused them of blocking foot traffic and ordered them to disperse. When some of them tried to explain they were just waiting for a bus that should arrive shortly he arrested them for disorderly conduct. Their coach arrived as they were being handcuffed, and when he asked they be released, cops threatened to arrest him, too.
