The Baltimore Grand Prix lurched toward its starting line Thursday as downtown was consumed by the chaos of last-minute preparations for the three-day event.

But getting downtown Baltimore to grind to a halt was no easy task.

The extra police officers sent to the Inner Harbor and downtown to combat unruly youths and crime this past weekend recorded 40 arrests, including more than 10 for drug possession, and two handguns seized. It's a snapshot of crime covering a single, extended weekend, the latest of what is promised to be a summertime-long redeployment of up to 50 officers Thursday night through Sunday mornings to combat crime. It brings the total number of officers in that area to more than 70. Police released the statistics, including a 14 percent drop in violent crime in the Central District compared with the first five months of last year, even as another state lawmaker added his voice to criticism that Baltimore leaders have covered up mayhem to protect the image of the premier tourist attraction.
