    It was business as usual at Grant Park in Over-The-Rhine. There was full

    Block watch captain John Donaldson said some people are not taking the
    governor's "Stay-at-Home" order seriously.“There’s not been a single
    night where it's been honored,” said Donaldson.



    Which is why Donaldson is not surprised by a now viral video taken just a
    few blocks away at Liberty and Walnut Streets."This is how we do it in
    my city. I don't give a **** about the coronavirus,” said Rashaan Davis
    on the video.Cincinnati police said this is not how we do it Cincinnati.



    The alleged ringleader, Rashaan Davis, was arrested Saturday after the
    11-minute video surfaced on social media. The video showed a large group
    gambling, drinking in public, and playing loud music outside of the
    Liberty Street Shell gas station.



    "We're in a vulnerable time right now where riots could break out. A lot
    of things could happen, and this guy is basically inciting that kind of
    activity and I think that rises to a different level of problems in the
    society,” said Donaldson.



    Cincinnati police said the behavior on that video will not be tolerated.
    On Saturday, an officer was stationed on Walnut Street while officers
    on bikes patrolled the area. Barricades were also added to Walnut Street
    to discourage people from congregating.



    Police also said they are exploring the possibility of adding additional fines and penalties for anyone who violates the order.



    “I think that's a good signal to send and I appreciate everything CPD is
    doing. Again, I’d like to have a curfew in place to kind of close some
    of this stuff down,” said Donaldson. “We all are suffering through this
    coronavirus. We need to get back to work and we can't do it if we keep
    spreading things around.”



    Rashaan Davis was ordered held without bond at the Hamilton County
    Justice Center. The penalty for violating the governor’s order is up to
    90 days behind bars and a $750 fine.
