Harrisburg, PA, police were called to a hit-and-run wreck Friday night along Sylvan Terrace, a single block of row homes near the Mulberry Street bridge.
A van had smashed into a parked car, shoving the parked car into a third car in the dark of the night, just before 11 p.m.
The officers were there to help, but soon found themselves the target of anger.
"Hands up, don't shoot!" one woman repeatedly shouted at the officers as they tried to figure out how to disentangle two cars locked by their bumpers.
"Ya'll better worry about getting home to your families!" she loudly taunted at officers several times.
Snide references to police shootings cropped up several times Friday night, as a PennLive reporter rode with platoon officers while they answered 911 calls.
