A man was handcuffed by six Bethlehem police officers outside The Cup in Farrington Square around 12:35 p.m. Monday.
While the officers were handcuffing him, the man was yelling for the police to “get off of him.” The officers escorted the man out of the Farrington Square area.
Amanda Sullivan, a barista who works at the Saxbys Coffee across the street from where the man was detained, said that previous to his encounter with the police, the man entered the coffee shop, purchased a coffee and left. Sullivan said he was loud and smelled bad. She later recognized him as the man who was being handcuffed by the police.
The Lehigh University Police Department said it does not know anything at this time. The Brown and White has reached out to the Bethlehem Police Department.
