Detroit police halt pillow fight
DETROIT -- Police in Detroit have ruffled some feathers after they cracked down on an organized pillow fight at a downtown park.
The Detroit News reports that police at Campus Martius Park prevented the feathery fight Saturday by disarming pillow-toting participants. The bout was part of a worldwide event organized on social networking websites.
Michael Davis of Hamtramck says police confiscated the 32-year-old man's pillows but returned their cases. He said he was told he needed a permit.
Scott Harris of Ferndale, Mich., told the News that it's "not illegal to own a pillow."
Detroit police spokesman James Tate said cleanup was the issue.
