Yesterday evening, the police blocked off part of West 17th Street in Manhattan to deal with an EDP. Racked reports that the activity prevented shoppers from getting to Barneys Warehouse Sale, leading to speculation "that someone had gone crazy in the shoe section." However, Racked found out that it was an "'anti-sociable individual' was throwing bottles" from a building down the street, though cops "seemed highly amused by the rumors of a hostage situation at the Barneys sale."
