Any idea on what was going on in Park and Ride parking lot on the 4th around 9:15pm? We were on our way to the Hill to watch the fireworks and there were about 7 police cars with their lights on and about 4 that didn't have their lights on and then a big police van. Wasn't a DUI check point but never heard anything as to why they all there there.
