DETROIT (AP) - Police in Detroit have ruffled some feathers after they cracked down on an organized pillow fight at a downtown park.
The Detroit News reports that police at Campus Martius Park prevented the feathery fight Saturday by disarming pillow-toting participants. The bout was part of a worldwide event organized on social networking Web sites.
Michael Davis of Hamtramck says police confiscated the 32-year-old man's pillows but returned their cases. He says he was told that he needed a permit.
Scott Harris of Ferndale told the News that it's "not illegal to own a pillow."
Detroit police spokesman James Tate says cleanup was the issue.
