Three or four years ago, I was refereeing AYSO U14G at Balboa Park in LA. A helicopter circled low at the end of the park for a while, but I didn't see anything. At halftime, I noticed that less than 100 yards away, four policemen with drawn guns (two pistols, two long guns) were standing around two guys who were spreadeagled up against a fence. I went over and said, We've got a lot of soccer games going on right here, should we stop until you're finished with this? Are we in any danger? One of the plainclothes cops smiled and replied quite calmly, Nope, it's all under control, you're quite safe, don't worry about anything. Ten minutes later they had gone.
