Remember when a black male was panhandling in North Utica on the road leading to Walmart? At the light, he would approach people in their cars when they were stopped for the red light.<quoted text>I also was stopped by this man, he came out of now were right in front of my car I almost hit him.He stayed in front of my car so I couldn't move. Stated he was from Albany and lost his wallet and cell and could I give him money and let him use my cell. Its good this is public so when he gets hit by someone there wont be a FRAUD claim for injuries. He was harassing people pumping gas as I left the shopping center. Why are the cops not handling this?
I reported him to UPD only to be told "it is a public highway, there is nothing we can do"!!!!!!
Someone needs to tell UPD that panhandling IS against the law!!!!!
