NO TRUTH TO MY RUMOR: In Downtown Los Angeles, a man with a cane found himself detained by local police after he was seen “walking funny" on Broadway, according to witnesses standing in line to enter the Los Angeles Theatre.
The historic theater was the venue for a public assembly when the disorderly male was seen tipping his hat to female attendees, then attempted to enter the lobby without a ticket several times.
He would only identify himself as "a tramp" and remained silent during questioning by LAPD's keystone police authority.
The alleged tramp was soon released and later welcomed into the theater.
No further incidents were reported.
