CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- This week’s Food Lion Speed Street has been deemed an extraordinary event, which means police have more power to keep the peace.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police arrested one man and charged him with assaulting an officer during Thursday evening at Speed Street.
Officers told NBC Charlotte one of them was apparently hit during the scuffle. Speed Street will continue Friday at noon and run through Sunday.
Parts of Tryon Street, Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Brevard Street in uptown are closed due to Speed Street this weekend.
