Warning about police sting leads to arrest

Interesting article from VLW:

March 28th, 2011

A Newport News man who shouted a warning to potential targets of a police prostitution sting now faces charges of obstruction of justice.

David Earl Armstrong spotted police running a classic “flat-foot floozy” operation on Jefferson Avenue, with an undercover officer posing as a prostitute. “Those are the police,” Armstrong yelled to men who approached the bait.

Not surprisingly, police took a dim view of Armstrong’s community information service. The Daily Press reports he is charged with obstructing justice.

“Not so fast,” said a civil liberties advocate, who argued no crime had been committed when Armstrong spoke up.
