Why Was the Cop Chopper Flying Around Near Capitol Hill Saturday Night/Sunday AM?

Were you one of the many folks wondering what brought that noisy cop chopper to the edge of Capitol Hill early Sunday morning?

We got an email or two about the chopper—as did our news partners Capitol Hill Seattle —and called SPD this morning to find out what all the fuss was about.

SPD tells us that King County’s Guardian One helicopter was called in to assist police in breaking up a 20-person brawl in the 800 block of Columbia street around 2:30am on Sunday.

Police didn’t make any arrests.
