Now the tourists are saying the police were in plain clothes and didn't identify themselves, and that the cops simply started attacking them and they fought back. Um, well, they were at a police station. Who did they think would come out of the building?
Apparently this was a van with 12 people from NYC. The 6 who didn't fight with the cops didn't get in trouble, although naturally they are siding with their pals. They claim nobody was drinking.
I'll bet this gets resolved with them losing their bail money in exchange for the charges being dropped, and being kicked out of the country.
