When a sports broadcast cuts or returns from a commercial, they often show some of the most iconic and famed local landmarks in the surrounding area. Watch a game centered in the Bay Area and you’ll see Alcatraz or the Golden Gate Bridge. Watch a New York based game and you’ll see the Statue of Liberty or the Empire State building.
So what about when the game is in San Antonio? Well, you either get The Alamo or the famed Riverwalk. And right on cue, that’s exactly what the TNT broadcast did during the second quarter of Game 1 between the Dallas Mavericks and San Antonio Spurs, but there was a small problem. Pictured on the Riverwalk were two police officers detaining a man who appeared to be handcuffed.

I’m guessing the San Antonio tourism board wasn’t overly thrilled with that image.
Come visit San Antonio where people are detained at a local tourist hot spots.
Also, you’ve really got to be asking for it if the bicycle cops nab you.
