Video: The DPD Shuts Down The Rec Shop's Customer Appreciation Party

Still waiting to hear back from, well, pretty much all possible sources on what went down on at the Rec Shop's customer appreciation celebration on Sunday afternoon. As our slideshow and, now, the above video clip shows, a whole bunch of cops showed up to emphatically shut down the party. Why? Well, rumors are circling about (of course), but we're going to wait until we've hear back from some folks before divulging anything more on the matter. Got calls into the DPD, the Rec Shop and a few others, too, to see why such a crazy scene took place. At this point, no reports have been filed--at least none that can be publicly viewed via the DPD's Web site.

For now, though, I think the above clip (shot, I believe, by Nic Hernandez) kinda speaks for itself.

Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
