He had seen Jerry Seinfeld perform at the Meyerhoff earlier this month and had gone out for a few beers with friends after the show. He said that as he walked back to his car about 1:15 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 7, he was attacked in front of Brewer's Art on North Charles Street. Police were called and came to the scene.

A teen-ager in a police Scout program who apparently couldn't wait to join the force stole a squad car, radio and uniform and patrolled city streets for almost four hours early yesterday, stopping at crime scenes and waving to officers.His disheveled shirt, baggy pants and boyish looks raised some eyebrows, but neither a suspicious officer nor a police security guard stopped him before he returned to a downtown station house and was arrested.Police said the 16-year-old, who was not named because of his age, did not carry a gun or badge, but managed to escape detection despite briefly encountering at least six officers and talking to a dispatcher over the radio.
