Columbus police planned to have uniformed and plain clothes officers walking the streets Saturday night as tens of thousands of Central Ohioans took to the bars and restaurants to party on Halloween.
From a Buckeye win to decent temps and an extra hour added to the night as we turn back our clocks, things were expected to become interesting.
Skully Webb, owner of Skully’s in the Short North agreed, “I think it’s going to make things very interesting because everyone is holding back for a little bit, the party will last longer, and they’ll act crazy because they have that extra time to party.“
According to Columbus police Sgt. Rich Weiner, the plan was “business as usual” for his officers, stating that Columbus police had enough personnel to deal with whatever happened.
