Statement from the Metropolitan Police Department Regarding Misinformation about Police Escort

The Metropolitan Police Department refutes false allegation.

The reporting that the Metropolitan Police Department led members into <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /?>MontgomeryCounty and to the home of a bank executive is wholly false.  The MPD shadowed the unpermitted march, while in the District of Columbia, to ensure that no one in the march was injured.  At NO time did the MPD enter Montgomery County, Maryland.   Upon arriving at the Maryland line the MPD notified the Montgomery CountyPolice of the approaching march and then stayed in the District of Columbia.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /?>
