Men Accused of Assaulting Party Bus Driver

Update on 4/2/13 — Charges against the suspects have been dropped, court records show.

Police arrested two Arlington men on Saturday and charged them with assaulting the driver of a party bus.

According to police, the incident happened around 9:20 p.m. after the party bus — also called a “keg bus” — had returned to the East Falls Church Metro station from the West Virginia University/James Madison University football game at FedEx Field in Maryland. The bus had been “trashed,” according to police, and the driver demanded extra payment for cleaning and for the extra hour and a half the bus had been in use over the original scheduled time.

At that point, police say, three intoxicated suspects on the bus started punching and kicking the driver. The suspects then fled the scene, leaving the individual who used his credit card to pay for the bus behind, according to Arlington County Police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck.

The bus driver suffered a busted lip, swollen eye and bruises, Sternbeck said, but did not require hospitalization.

Eventually, police caught up with two of the suspects. Matthew —- and Cory —-, both 23-year-old Arlington residents, were arrested and charged with assault by mob. Both were held without bond. So far, police have not been able to locate the third suspect.

Sternbeck did not know whether the bus passengers were WVU or JMU fans.

  • DarkHeart

    No credit card on file to cover the extra charges so as to avoid a confrontation?

    • SteamboatWillie

      Perhaps a credit card was on file to cover damages. Regardless, the driver should have a reasonable expectation that he wouldn’t be attacked, even if he was upset about the vandalism.

    • Tabby_TwoTone

      doesn’t it say that the non-offending guy with the credit card was still there post-beat up?

  • http://nelsm4517@mac.com Ballston Commons

    So sad to see something like this.

    • Mary-Austin

      Agreed. But also not too surprising given the number of dbags congregating in the area these days.

  • Corey

    Is there seriously any question as to which team they were fans of?

  • BarcroftRambler

    Definitely WVU fans.

    • jackson

      There’s a Matt Torok on Facebook from JMU, and his profile pic is him getting his drink on with his bros.

      (Not posting a link or saying that this is the same Matt Torok currently enjoying our county’s hospitality, just saying there is a Matt Torok who went to JMU on Facebook…)

      • Court House Res

        Hahahaha, the photo is classic. It really could be fans from either school.

        • Tabby_TwoTone

          But never UVA or Georgetown.

          • Sherriff Gonna Getcha

            definitely not UVA. You cant get that rowdy off Zima.

          • ZimaDrinkingUVAgrad

            Whatever, the cheese and crackers keep us sober…

          • realUVAgrad

            Nobody drinks or has ever drank Zima at UVA, nor eaten cheese and crackers unless in a drunken stupor at 3 am on the floor like David Hasselhoff eating a burger.

          • Lloyd

            Easters can never be matched.

      • Duke

        It’s definitely JMU people

    • ccres

      JMU alum here and the evidence (linkedin/facebook) is pointing towards these dudes being JMUers. sigh.

      • CW

        Sigh? Does that imply surprise?

        • ccres

          Embarrassment is a better word.

          • CW

            Ok, was about to say, based on my experience in Arlington this seems to be pretty typical alumni behavior.

          • Becoming indifferent

            Yes, unfortunately JMU students and alumni are trying to match the big boys with their ability to do stupid things while drinking. Full disclosure–I am a JMU alum, from back when JMU wasn’t trying to be UVA and VA Tech.

          • What

            from back when JMU wasn’t trying to be UVA and VA Tech.

            What does that mean? Pretty sure those three schools shouldn’t be lumped into one…

          • Court House Res

            Hahaha, JMU, VA Tech, and UVA are all very different schools. The only thing they have in common is that they’re all in Virginia. JMU is more like…WVU.

    • jim

      actually JMU

    • Robbo

      I’m not sure what school you are affiliated with, but I’m from WVU and there were far more JMU fans acting like fools on Saturday. Shame on you for assuming.

  • Regis

    Sternbeck did not know whether the bus passengers were WVU or JMU fans.

    He should check LinkedIn then.

    • drax

      Should have said: Sternbeck did not give a damn whether the bus passengers were WVU or JMU fans.

    Nanny staters: Why are people allowe dto consume alcohol outside of home? how many people have been injured or killed from inhaling smoke in a bar vs the alcohol that’s consumed in a bar or anywhere outside of home?

    • jackson

      How does a story about two drunk knuckleheads assaulting a bus driver call for a political comment? You’re trying to hard to shoehorn comments in, Steve. Wait for the next Moran story.

      • Kiffee

        +1

        • SomeGuy

          Because there’s actually a 3rd suspect?

          • jackson

            Doesn’t make it political. He wasn’t on the grassy knoll.

          • SomeGuy

            +1 because you only mentioned two suspects (“knuckleheads”). Kiffee pointed out that you failed to count the 3rd.

      • novasteve

        So alcohol wasn’t involved with an assault on a party bus where there was alcohol?

        • Mumford

          Weep for yourself, my man,
          You’ll never be what is in your heart
          Weep little lion man,
          You’re not as brave as you were at the start
          Rate yourself and rake yourself,
          Take all the courage you have left
          Waste it on fixing all the problems that you made in your own head

          • CW

            Shouldn’t you be watching your kids?

    • Dr_Klahn

      Steve, take a nice long drag and relax.

    • drax

      Go look up the numbers and answer a question for once in your life, steve.

    • JamesE

      My sources tell me that the driver wouldn’t allow them to smoke on the bus and they got angry.

    • Just the Facts

      We tried that, it didn’t work.

      #learnhistory #everhearofProhibition?

    • Bluemontsince1961

      Oh give it a freakin’ damn rest already!!! Every time we turn around in ARLNow, it seems a discussion gets hijacked for another howl about smoking in a damn bar or not being able to smoke in a bar! Stop beating a dead horse.

    • Iron Lung

      I am sure there are many bartenders, restaurant managers, and waitstaff that can claim an injury or death from inhaling second hand smoke in a bar. I believe the current law are there to protect both the employees and patrons health.

      This is coming from a smoker.

    • Persian that wears too much cologne

      I would like to invite you to come with me to Adams Morgan and my bar of choice will be “Dans Cafe” I think you might learn to live a little or contract hepatitis C either way its a win win!

    I am glad the guy left behind threw his friends under the proverbial Keg Bus. I hope they feel the long arm of the law, for a few years in the County Jail or on the State Work Farm( I hope we still have a work farm in the commonwealth for trouble makers like these two.

  • David

    According to LinkedIn, both were in Kappa Alpha at JMU.

      • Mary-Austin

        from Pennsylvania…

      • KA+

        This is exactly why fraternities should not extend into the mid-Atlantic. True (southern) KAs don’t act like this.

        • Westover

          I would not go that far. Depends on the school/chapter, some of my brothers are true gentlemen, others should be expelled, all along the coast.

  • JamesE

    Trevor?

    • BangBrahs

      I didn’t get back on the bus bro. I took the metro back to Ballston to catch last call and throw some beanbags at ATown

  • nom de guerre

    My source indicates they both studied at the David Hasselhoff School of Drinking, which is part of Clown Enema University.

    http://uncyclopedia.wikia.com/wiki/Clown_Enema_University

    • JamesE

      Prior to beating the driver they were seen rolling on the floor eating cheeseburgers.

      • nom de guerre

        And not just any cheeseburgers, but the “Hoff” provided by Sam’s Corner, featuring 90% hand chopped, hand fed Waygu beef with 10% beef fat added for juicyness, cooked medium rare and served on a lightly toasted brioche bun, topped with carmelized red onions, smoked provolone cheese, micro greens and a barbecue sauce infused with honey, mango and Jack Daniels®.

        • Dr_Klahn

          Did you get paid or did you get jacked up when you handed them the bill?

          • nom de guerre

            I got paid but the keg bus operator insisted on a cut due to the extensive amount of technicolor yawn residue that was inside the vehicle.

        • Tabby_TwoTone
        • Arl for Now

          I saw a San’s Corner bumper sticker on a car today. It made me hungry. Thanks.

  • Mary-Austin

    I hope these tools spend some time in jail.
    What is it with people here obsessed with living out the college lifestyle well into their 20′s?
    When I came back to Arlington after college I noticed a lot of the douchier types from college showing up here. It’s weird.

    • JamesE

      20′s? It goes into the 30′s here.

      • drax

        I plan to go at it at least until age 55.

        • OldTimer

          Until my bones get too brittle to risk the fall downs…

          Me and my bro’s never get violent though. That’s not cool.

          • drax

            You and your bros can’t get violent because you’re holding walkers.

      • Sherriff Gonna Getcha

        its all good until you get an assault or taking pictures of your ex-gf naked when she is sleeping charge.

    • Westover

      SInce when is 23, “well into their 20′s”? First it should be 20s as 20 possesess nothing. Secondly, 23 for most is a year out of school. For enlisted veterans, it would be their second year in school. Frankly, I see no problem partying on the party bus forever, just do it with a clear head and don’t beat up your driver.

      • Mary-Austin

        Please excuse my ignorance.
        I’m 23 and I’ve been done with college for 2 years.
        What does this story have to do with veterans?
        The problem is not them having fun on a bus.
        The problem is them going around beyond drunk in public, trashing the bust. They then assaulted a man and probably thought nothing of it.

        • CW

          23? Wow, from your posts I figured you were 40+.

          • Lloyd

            40ish, single male, frustrated IT monkey. Book it.

          • Mary-Austin

            I’m single but that’s about all you got right :)

            Oh I assumed a lot older than 40! Wow. Weird.

            You sir are a bounder !!

            A Southern Gentleman would never comment on a ladies age.

          • drax

            40, nothing. This lady has scolding grandma down pat already.

          • Westover

            That is what I had been thinking for a while now.

          • Tabby_TwoTone

            maybe it’s scalding grandma.

        • drax

          Wow, you can read their minds too.

        • Westover

          You graduated before your 21st birthday? Well done! But the average person graduates and has a fun time for the first few years out of school until they settle down and start a family. I am just throwing out the veteran part, due to a large number of young ones starting to settle in our fine county. And yes, there is a problem with them trashing the bus and the driver, I give them a pass for drinking in public. but that is a problem at age 6 or age 96 and I don’t see where age should come into play in excuseing it or further condemning it.

          • Mary-Austin

            I graduated when I was 21, almost 22. I will be 24 at the end of this week (ugh).
            And yes I still like to go out and party on the weekends but that doesn’t mean getting black out drunk every time and urinating in the street like I see people doing in Clarendon. I guess that makes me a grandma and I’m ok with that.

          • Sheriff Gonna Getcha

            I go out in clarendon a lot. Not sure I have ever seen anyone urinating in the street. Are you sure you go out?

          • Mary-Austin

            Yea I’m sure. I’ll just say you might not want to touch the Walgreens’ sign next time you’re around there.
            You sure you’re out past 11pm?

  • http://www.arlnow.com/2012/09/18/men-accused-of-assaulting-party-bus-driver/ JoeW

    This was JMU party bus…they passed us on 395 heading to the game and noticed the WVU sticker on our car. They started hanging out of the windows flipping us off and yelling at us as we were stopped in traffic. As a WVU alum I was kinda proud of their effort, though apparently it was amateur hour. If you are going to trash a bus and refuse to pay at least be smart enough to use a stolen credit card!!

  • Traffic Jammin

    I think that’s the wrong Cory Kane, bro.

    • Traffic Jammin

      Oops, the LinkedIn links post got deleted. Well, one of them was the wrong guy anyway.

  • Sal

    Getting completely hammered then assaulting someone b/c you don’t want to pay for something you owe- just regular weekend fun!

    Bet their parents are so proud. That must feel rewarding to spend tens of thousands for a college education and end up with a twenty-something that has the maturity of a sixteen-year-old with an alcohol problem.

    • Arlingtoon

      I doubt that Daddy’s going to be able to get him out of this mess. Maybe post bail, and pay for a lawyer. But i suspect that Matt and Corey are going to be living in public housing for a while longer.

      • Ben

        Hard to post bail when your being held without bond.

      • Mary-Austin

        Hopefully they lose their bs financial consulting jobs and spend some time to rethink.
        No Matt and Cory, you’re not special and you can’t get away with whatever you feel like doing.

  • 350sbc

    If this is the same KegBus that I saw in front of Clarendon metro after the game (it was a shortbus, yeah), it had about 8-10 dudes in the back swinging on the pole and yelling out the window at other drunk people.

    It must be amateur hour… where were the girls?

    • Mary-Austin

      8-10 dudes swinging on the pole…hmmm.

      • Sherriff Gonna Getcha

        yea thats totally opposite of the JMU I experienced

    • Seriously?

      that’s because this whole comment is 110% WRONG. get your facts straight because it wasn’t even a short bus.

  • ArLater

    Sooo, are these guys about to replace Trev in ArlNow commentary?

    • BangBrahs

      Fat chance brah. Just like your Mom.

    Please, please send them jail.

  • http://Charlestoncat Thegoodguys

    Actually they were JMU fans jackass. Also saw an entire row of JMU fans kicked out for fighting, with each other!

  • Marcus Seiler

    Riots on campus a few years ago, now something like this. Very disheartening…..

  • Seriously?

    One piece of advice for all of you ignorant people that commented on this is not to believe everything you read. And for you all to pass judgement on an incident that you read ONLINE is really sad. Seriously, get a life….this article doesn’t even come close to the truth. And p.s no this is not one of the three guys, I just had to clear people’s reputations before mindless creepy people tear other people apart for something they don’t even know an ounce of truth about. The three were actually on the bus trying to help clean up everything and the bus driver was physically pushing and shoving them off the bus. Trust me, the bus driver was NOT at all an innocent victim in this whole situation. AND two out of the three guys didn’t even touch the bus driver, all they did was break up the fight and they’re the ones that got arrested for nothing. Hopefully, this shuts up a few of you that think your all tough and smart when writing about people behind a computer.

    • Quoth the Raven

      Were you there? Otherwise, how did you get your info, if not from the suspects?

    • nom de guerre

      Is your name Paul Wickre?

    • Sal

      So who beat up the bus driver – the Easter Bunny? Regardless of what kind of dispute there was, that is assault and there’s no excuse or justification for it. And if nobody did anything wrong, then why didn’t any of these geniuses stick around? Why not call the cops and wait for them to come and resolve the dispute like a grownup would do? Too drunk for that?

      • drax

        What if they hit him in self-defense?

        • Mary-Austin

          They probably wouldn’t have been arrested and held without bond.

          • drax

            So there can’t possibly be another side to the story, and the police never make mistakes! Awesome! So we can finally dispense with that waste of time called a trial, or defense, and all that crap, huh, Mary-Austin?

          • Westover

            It was Tryvon or George Zimmerman…… possibly OJ.

          • SomeGuy

            Thank you for saving me the keystrokes on this one, drax.

          • Mary-Austin

            Yes there are always two sides to a story. That’s why police do all that investigating and interviewing crap before they arrest people!
            I don’t think after someone has been arrested for a crime and held without bond it is jumping to conclusions that they had responsibility in a crime.

          • SomeGuy

            I think it’s foolish to assume guilt (“responsibility,” etc.) in this situation based solely on a police report. Police officers aren’t omniscient and they often have various motivations that you don’t understand. In fact, I can think of certain “proactivity metric” motivations that our very own ACPD was caught promoting.

            Police get it wrong sometimes.

    • Clearer of Reputations?

      Is your comment under oath sir?

      Where should they send the subpoena Mr. Seriously?

    • doug drabek

      You may be right, but generally cops don’t charge people with Assault based on a ‘he said she said’.

      I have been arrested for Assault in my youth when I did not even touch the person I supposedly assaulted. Unfortunately for me, that lying piece of sh*t was an off duty cop. So I sympathize. I’m just glad they didnt’ have ArlNow back then.

      • SomeGuy

        In other words… generally they don’t but sometimes they do. Which is why the rest of us shouldn’t jump to conclusions and attempt to figuratively tar and feather the accused. However, I don’t expect this community to change in that regard.

    • John Fontain

      Hey “Seriously?”,

      So let me get this straight. The passengers messed up the bus and these nice, honorable guys were doing the right thing by staying behind to clean up the mess. And so the bus driver assualted them because they were trying to help him by cleaning the bus?

      Is that really the story that you think the defendants should stick with?

  • ZippyDog

    I would not expect that the writer would state that the driver had a complex lip laceration, but “busted lip”? Cut lip, swollen and cut lip, they all work, busted lip sounds like something right out of the Urban Dictionary.

  • Tom A

    It’s widely impressive how many mature adults are quick to comment on this. Did you ever learn to not believe everything you read? What a concept. The two men everyone has conveniently looked up and commented on were not involved in a physical altercation with this bus driver. If you were there, which none of you were, you would accurately be able to give some insight on this situation. I commend this reporter on his impressively innaccurate reporting skills. As for the rest of you, I’m glad to see your time continues to be wasted on unimpressive witty remarks. Carry on. Wouldn’t want to stop anyone from wasting their day.

    • Mary-Austin

      Yea, I’m sure these guys are classy gentlemen. The Arlington County PD arrested them for mob by assault and held them without bond for no reason at all.
      Reminds me of the commenters defending the guy who beat on his pregnant ex-girlfriend.
      These guys deserve all the humiliation they get.

      • drax

        If someone is arrested, they must be guilty!

        Congratulations on completely overturning a basic legal concept that has existed since the Roman Empire.

        • Lloyd

          But they have been held for several days without bond. In the opinion of a judge, they should not be free.

          • drax

            You realize that being held or on bond for trial isn’t the same thing as a conviction, right?

          • Lloyd

            Yeah, I realize that.

            Have a little fun sometime. It’s good for your blood pressure.

          • drax

            I’m having a great time! You?

        • Mary-Austin

          Do you dispute the fact that they were arrested and held without bond as a search continues for a 3rd brospect?

          • drax

            No.

            Do you think that means they are definitely guilty of every charge made against them? That their side of the story doesn’t matter? That we should simply throw them in prison without trial or their chance at a defense?

          • Ballston Resident

            Think we’ve got a JMU alum here people.

          • drax

            You’re calling me a JMU alum? Please, no personal insults. I don’t call you names.

          • Mary-Austin

            No. I never said that. I think it is pretty clear that they were involved. The bus was trashed, a guy was beaten. C’mon man use some common sense.

          • SomeGuy

            My common sense suggests that you’re jumping to a conclusion based on one side of the story.

            My common sense also tells me that human beings get it wrong sometimes, and police officers are human beings. There’s a deduction to make from that previous sentence, but I’m leaving that step to Mary-Austin.

    • Sal

      Riiiiiiight…. and they were taken into custody b/c they were just two innocent little angels who were just at the wrong place at the wrong time and had nothing to with all this. Bet they weren’t even drinking – just went along for the ride right? What’s sad is that there is anyone that would jump up to defend a bunch of people who at a minimum were acting like complete drunken idiots in public, and at worst ganged up and assaulted a guy they hired to drive their drunken arses around.

      • Seriously?

        and your any better for jumping to conclusions that this article is even a tiny bit true? It’s on the internet for gods sake. Question for ya Sal… you were on the bus right? OHHH riiiiiight…no you weren’t at all. so how bout you keep your comments about something you have NO knowledge about to yourself. Your only embarrassing yourself at how inaccurate you really are.

        • Lloyd

          JMU-type grammar detected.

        • Quoth the Raven

          Were you on the bus? If not, you’re guessing as much as the rest of us are. And we’re left with the fact that two dudes are being held without bond.

          • drax

            Yes, that’s all you’re left with too. As long as you acknowledge that.

          • Quoth the Raven

            Sure, why not? I’m certainly not saying that they’re guilty, b/c no one (not even the guys claiming to be there) know that.

          • drax

            Mary-Austin is sure they are guilty.

      • drax

        When people are taken into custody, they are always guilty!

        Boom! 2,000+ years of ei incumbit probatio qui dicit, non qui negat blown away!

        • Quoth the Raven

          Who is saying that? The point (as I think you know) is that when folks are held without bond, it implies that there is at least some evidence that the police got the right guys, and that the guys are in some way either dangerous or a flight risk. It does not imply that they’re guilty, and I don’t think anyone has said that.

          • drax

            Mary-Austin is definitely saying that. Probably Sal too, and a few others.

          • Lloyd

            Search this thread for the word guilty. The results will probably surprise you.

            Exactly! And continue to act like arrest and charges are nbd.

          • drax

            So Mary-Austin, is it possible they aren’t guilty? Yes or no?

    • Westover

      So Tom A. and Seriously believe that thre is a conspiracy between the Bus Driver, ACPD and the Commonwealth Attorney to put these guys away, and the judge is probably a Sig Ep, these dudes are screwed for doing NOTHING but cleaning up a bus their distant associates trashed.

      • drax

        Of course not, but that’s not the only possibility.

  • Dr_Klahn

    Was Shaun White on the bus?

  • Tom A

    They are not being held without bail. Yes I was there. No Cory and Matt did not touch the driver. Yes people have been arrested in the past when they are innocent. It is why our court system conducts trials. Only one other commentator seems to have been on the bus so if you continue to believe the opposite of what is being said by those present, then choose to believe lies.

    • drax

      Doesn’t matter, Tom – they were ARRESTED. So they must be guilty. Cops wouldn’t make mistakes or not get the full story. No trials are necessary, and presumption of innocence doesn’t exist.

      Seriously, you should read ArlNow more often, you’d know this stuff better.

    • http://Charlestoncat Thegoodguys

      Did you go to JMU?

    • Mary-Austin

      Well maybe you can help the police locate the other suspect that beat and seriously injured the bus driver and fled.

      • Westover

        Grandma Mary-Austin posts a very good point.

        • Quoth the Raven

          No, Tom A will all of a sudden get stricken by amnesia…..

          • Westover

            Save one friend, by throwing another under the keg/party bus?

          • Sheriff Gonna Getcha

            Its called “I was blacked out man, I have no idea what happened”

    • Mike

      OK Tom, if you were there, tell us, what actually happened? Did someone trash the bus? Did someone beat up the bus driver? If so, who did it?

      The “presumption of innocence” applies to the criminal case only – they can’t be convicted unless the Commonwealth proves to a jury, beyond a reasonable doubt, that they are guilty.
      Outside the trial, there is no presumption of innocence — people reading this blog are not required to believe them to be innocent and withhold judgment. It would be nice if people were fair-minded, and perhaps they would be if you offered a story differing from the version we were given, but just saying “you weren’t there” and “innocent until proven guilty” is not going to change anyone’s opinion.

      • SomeGuy

        I know nothing about this case except that which I read here. I think the bigger picture issue is that people in general jump to these conclusions (e.g., “might not be legally guilty, but must be a bad person if he/she got arrested”).

        It’s a little disappointing to think that someone can completely tarnish another person’s name with a mere accusation, just because the public won’t await all the facts. And as far as I can tell, the publisher here (ArlNow.com) doesn’t follow up when/if a defendant clears his name. Thus, the damage gets done but doesn’t appear to get cleaned up.

        • James

          Some of us don’t need facts and can come to conclusions from the evidence…the 3 guys FLED.

          If the bus driver attacked them…don’t you think they would have waited around and filed charges? Even if only one of them attacked the driver, they are still responsible for stopping their friend from continuing attacking the driver.

          So why flee the scene? Most innocent people don’t leave the scene of a crime.

          Just saying…

          • drax

            Hey, great thing to bring up…in their trial.

          • SomeGuy

            “Some of us don’t need facts…”

            You could have stopped right there. I don’t know… if someone were attacking you, would you stick around? Then again, maybe some people just choose to not file charges, and it comes down to who reacts with police charges first. I.e., if you and I get into a skirmish and we both walk away with a black eye, is the “victim” whichever one of us calls the cops first? Or is it possible that you’re the aggressor, but I consider my black eye less trouble than filing reports and taking time off to show up at trials?

            Nevermind those potential circumstances though. As you said yourself, “some of us don’t need facts.”

  • WizKid

    Sounds like a typical KegBus scam. They are always looking to nickel and dime their customers. If they were up front and honest about their pricing incidents like this would probably be avoided. Not the first time I’ve heard of this organization demanding payment, tacking on fees, etc.

  • Randy P.

    Hi, Randy here. I was on the bus and Kory and Matt are my fart bros from an unnamed fraternity from way back when. They didn’t assault anyone and it was the driver who started it. Sure, we got a little rowdy but who wouldn’t after a high powered session of Keystone King Chug. We are guys from a frat, this is what we do. We don’t hurt anyone and they are good, smart kids with marketing degrees who work at big firms here in awesome A-Town. Give them a chance. There were some troublemakers on the bus but they weren’t with our frat, they were from VT (go figure). Anyways, don’t judge a frat by the cover. We’re not all bad seeds.

    • nom de guerre

      What in the hel! are “fart bros?” Greek gassers?

      “good, smart kids with marketing degrees who work at big firms here in awesome A-Town”

      Smart? I thought you said they went to JMU.

      • doug drabek

        JMU=Just Missed UVa

        although that should really apply to William and Mary

        • Tabby_TwoTone

          Jon Stewart went to William and Mary.

          And I don’t think that anyone at JMU “just” missed UVA. More like — barely managed to avoid community college.

          God I’m a snob.

          • Randy P.

            Hey Tabby, I bet you’re fat and from Ohio. You can’t talk about my fart bros. like that! Go wash your fat, smelly feet! I bet you wear flip flops on the bus, Tabby. You could never hang with me and my fart bros.!

    • Westover

      Your “frat”? Really? WOuld you call your country a cu…?

  • nom de guerre

    FYI-Both suspects posted bond yesterday and were released from custody. Next scheduled court date is 11/30/2012.

  • Randy P.

    Sorry, *frat. Always happens, lol.

    They are good guys.

  • Randy P.

    Yes, I heard they’re out. This afternoon we’ll be in Clarendon doing some celebratory chugs! If anyone cares to join and knows Kory and Matt, send them a message on FB. The truth will set them free!

  • Randy P.

    No one talks about Kory and our Dukes this way! NO ONE! We were just frattin’ it up and blowing off steam from our big jobs here in A-Town. Our flip flops alone cost over $75 so take that and shove it in your fat asses, fatties.

  • ARLrez

    Here’s more from patch… well, not really more but you know what I mean.
