World Series ticket prices were selling for record prices, so there was a different breed of Red Sox fans in attendance. That is, people with a ton of money. Adolfo took to the streets and panhandled to see how much money he could get.
The city passed the local laws in January to outlaw certain types of panhandling, including soliciting money from motorists while standing in the street.
Since Worcester’s new panhandling ordinance took effect in January, only four arrests have been made.
One, called the ‘Pedestrian Safety Ordinance’, makes it illegal to stand in a median or step into traffic and solicit money.
It’s a slow day for George Washington, extending a cup to passersby, scraping together whatever change he can get.
