cops -- on location in Portland

The quality of these photos is lacking a little, but I was trying to be discreet. I wasn't sure of what the tone of this apprehension was, and didn't want to enrage our kindly law enforcement personnel. These pictures are of the view of our parking lot from the reception desk. It seems the SUV in the forefront of the picture was pulled over into our rinky-dink parking lot, and before we knew it there were three police cruisers and a dope dog crawling over the SUV, preventing anyone from entering our parking lot or leaving (both entrances were blocked by police vehciles). The police asked a man to get out of the SUV and put handcuffs on him, and then his passenger was asked to get out (not cuffed). Then there was a dope dog jumping all over the interior of the car barking wildly. After watching this scene for a 1/2 hour I became a little bored and other work duties called, so I don't know how the whole thing ended. I did think there were a lot of police standing around in the parking lot, in the pouring steady rain. It spiced up the rest of our day, unfortunatley some people who wanted to leave a little early were trapped at work.
