The conflict between motorists and squeegee kids dominated headlines in Baltimore throughout October after a story appeared on three local TV news stations of a driver whose car window was shattered by a washer when he refused to give him money.

On Oct. 4, networks ran interviews with the anonymous man, filmed from the neck down outside of his suburban home in front of his BMW.

“This is what we face every day on the road in Baltimore City,” the man told WMAR news, though he added that he “feels bad” for the many young window washers who are “good kids.”
