A man fell from a French Quarter balcony Friday night as he leaned over the railing to spit on people walking below, New Orleans police officials said.
A police spokesman told NOLA.com that the man fell from the balcony of a bar in the 700 block of Bourbon Street. His condition was not immediately available.
The news site reported that about a dozen NOPD officers and Louisiana state troopers were on the scene, attempting to keep the crowd under control as an ambulance arrived to pick the injured man up.
Officers on horseback guarded the ambulance and cleared a path for it to leave the scene.
