The Eagles Super Bowl parade brought hundreds of thousands of fans to Broad Street and the Benjamin Franklin Parkway on Thursday — and prompted some pretty weird calls on the police scanner.
8:41 a.m.: "You said Broad and Ritner, on top of the church, there's 15 people?"
9:18 a.m.: "We're not sure what it is — like a white bubble — but we've got people climbing on top of it."
9:59 a.m.: "Can we get crowd control at a vacant lot at 2300 Pennsylvania? … They're using it as a bathroom and throwing bottles."
10:45 a.m.: "Get the people off the TruMark bank."
10:49 a.m.: "They're on top of the rec center again."
10:52 a.m.: "I need people at Broad and Arch. You have people inside the trash truck."
10:56 a.m.: "They're climbing up on the roof — and it appears to be collapsing."
11:10 a.m.: "Get those players back on the bus. … Make them understand if they do this in Center City, we're going to lose everything."
11:10 a.m.: "Do I have anyone at the MSB building? There's several people trying to force themselves into the building."
11:44 a.m.: "There's a report of a large fight on the highway."
11:46 a.m.: "Can we get someone to respond to the people jumping on top of the Jumbotrons?"
12:44 p.m.: "One of the bus stops here at JKF collapsed here with people on it."
12:48 p.m.: "16th and JFK, they're taking over the trash truck there."
12:54 p.m.: "We have a male unconscious on the highway."
1:02 p.m.: "We have a drone in the air."
1:19 p.m.: "Once again, we have 40 or 50 people climbing up on the trash truck."
1:22 p.m.: "We got a drone operator up by our building. Are they checking them out or are they just letting them do it?"
1:23 p.m.: "There's gotta be 60 people on top of this trash truck. … They're also starting to climb the horses, snatch the horse by City Hall."
1:32 p.m.: "Still trying to tip over the media van."
1:36 p.m.: "Send me 20 officers — two-zero — to the Rocky statue please."
1:38 p.m.: "Got a person with a gun near the potty, porta potties. … Armed no further. … They got the gun recovered, but the person fled."
