    Shocking, no fixed address. I would like to thank the Board for inviting more people like that to the county with their year round shelter. Or maybe you can pretend this didn’t happen and thus it’s not possible that more will happen?

    • jackson

      It doesn’t exist yet, yet homeless people are flocking to Arlington already? These are some anxious folks!

      • b-money

        You’re crazy if you don’t think it will result in MORE coming to Arlington.

    Strong showing for the “No Fixed Address” crowd this week

    • Realist

      Yep, 2 out of 5 arrested. Get ready for some fun, Courthouse.

  • Mike Honcho

    I’ll bet the Mobile Masturbator lives somewhere near the Courthouse METRO station.

    • Huh?

      Because homeless people drive around in cars all the time?

      • Josh

        “Although the U.S. Census Bureau doesn’t keep records of the so-called
        vehicular homeless, there are informal estimates that up to 59.2% of
        homeless are living in cars or vans.”

        • yeah

          Sounds like Arlington needs to build a parking lot instead of a shelter.

          • EFC

            Just not at East Falls Church.

        • JamesE

          I live in a van down by the river.

      Never would’ve happened if he was driving an automatic instead of a stick!

    • SomeGuy

      She should have taken his keys?

  • WaltC

    I thought there might have been something about child pedestrian that might have been struck by a car at Military and Lee last weekend. There was tire screeching and a kid crying, but I don’t know that Police and Ambulance was necessary. Or maybe the Fire Dept next to Koons handled it.

    allegedly masturbating while following a woman with his car

    “Following” implies he was behind her, and since any masturbatory activity would be below window level, how was the nature of the alleged crime determined?
