From the Daily News:
An NYPD helicopter hovered above the starting line at E. 60th St. and York Ave. and it followed teams across the Queensboro Bridge to the first checkpoint at Queensbridge Park.
From Queensbridge Park, the teams raced to Lucky Mojo's Grill in Long Island City, then to the Coco 66 bar in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, and finally to the finish line at the Public Assembly bar in Williamsburg. Teams took the opportunity to drink liberally at all the stops, spectators said.
Cops made 15 arrests for disorderly conduct, public urination and possession of a controlled substance.
We're wasting police manpower and tax dollars on this stupid shit?
