After spending an idealic day picnicking and watching the Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yard for the first time, Joshua Kelly and Llara Brook of Chantilly, VA, headed home after getting directions. As they navigated their way home, they got lost and ended up in south Baltimore. Unfortunately for them, they ran a stop sign and were pulled over by officer Natalie Preston. After writing them a ticket, she refused to give them directions. Instead, according to Kelly, she said, "You found your own way in here, you can find your own way out." Kelly added that when they flagged another officer down to get help, Officer Preston intervened and said, "My partner is not going to step in front of me and tell you directions if I'm not." Desperate for help, Kelly pulled the car next to a curb, and Brook called her dad for help. As she was getting directions, Officer Preston pulled up behind them, told Kelly to get out of the car and arrested him for trespassing (on a public street). When Brook pleaded for help and said that she could not leave Kelly there, Officer Preston told her that would be going downtown also. The couple spent eight hours in jail and were released without being charged. Baltimore City police are investigating the incident.
