Alternate head: "There's your D Spot. Now, kneel on it." Unfair Park's favorite photographer, the great Justin Terveen, doesn't just shoot breathtaking photographs of the city's skyline. Sometimes, he's more about the ground-level action. Like, take this photo from Saturday morning, snapped at 2:04 in the a.m. in Pegasus Plaza on Main Street.

Notes Justin: "Dude broke some glass -- I heard it, but couldn't see -- [then] shoved what looked like a cop into a row of parked police bikes, dropping both man and machine, domino-style. Then came pavement. DTD was nuttier than squirrel shit last weekend." Which I believe is DowntownDallas' new slogan. No? Should be. Gives people the impression there's stuff, like, going on. --Robert Wilonsky

Update: For those who have asked about the death in downtown this afternoon, the official story, from the Dallas Police Department, can be found in the comments after the jump.

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.
