Arlington, VA

A huge brawl broke out in the parking lot of a Falls Church nightclub early Monday morning, prompting a frantic call for backup from the first police officers on the scene.

Officers from Falls Church and from Arlington and Fairfax counties swarmed the parking lot after the call, which came in around 12:30 AM. Responding officers disbursed a crowd of several hundred people, according to Maj. Mary Gavin of the Falls Church Police Department.

An officer was assaulted during the scuffle and suffered minor injuries, but did not require hospitalization, Maj. Gavin said. There were no arrests.

The brawl happened in a snow-covered parking lot outside the V3 Lounge nightclub, located at 6763 Wilson Blvd. in Falls Church, behind the Eden Center shopping plaza. There have been several prior incidents at the recently-opened club, according to police.

A flyer posted on advertised a dance party called “Twerkfest Part 2,” taking place Sunday night at V3 Lounge.  The flyer warns partygoers that “security and Fairfax police is strictly [sic] on premises.”

Shortly after the melee a small crowd gathered at a nearby gas station. They were tight-lipped about what happened.

“I don’t know, I didn’t see anything,” said a man with fresh bruises around his eye and lip.
