to a wreck on the west side of the Veterans Memorial monument.
While working the wreck the officer heard a loud voice coming
from the mini-park, saying, "I guess if there had been a call
on us skateboarders, you would have been here a lot sooner,"
and made a slang remark regarding police officers. The remarks
were loud enough to be disruptive in the park area, according

officers didn't need to hear that kind of language in the

police officer had asked him, he was under arrest for disorderly
