When Ryan Patterson and his son joined dozens of others at the Baltimore School for the Arts Recital Hall for a public meeting on May 14, Patterson knew to expect some tension in the room. This assembly concerned the Downtown Bike Network—its segments on Madison and Centre streets, specifically—and bike lanes are, as Patterson puts it, “a hot issue that a lot of people have opinions about.”

What Patterson didn’t expect was a physical altercation. Soon after the meeting began, a “commotion” erupted in the back of the room, Patterson says.

“The crowd jumped out of their seats, and this white, bald guy in the back of the room lifted this young, black guy up by the throat,” he says.

Copycat resident turns to Reddit for help opening a decades-old safe

Spencer Grundler’s reason for wanting a safe is, unfortunately, practical.

The freelance film and TV worker’s apartment in the Copycat Building was broken into while he was away camping. A safe, he thought, would be a great way to store some of his camera equipment, and he didn’t have to go far to find one.

“It’s been in the hallway there for as long as I can remember,” he said. “People have just ignored it.”
