Only in Arlington would someone (allegedly) attempt a robbery using a wine opener as a weapon.

From ACPD:

ATTEMPT ROBBERY-ARREST, 11/8/2010, 2900 block of S. Glebe Road On November 6 at 11 pm, a man attempted to rob another man of money by threatening him with a wine opener. Police located the suspect. Carlos Leyton, 28, of Alexandria, was charged with Attempted Robbery and Possession of a Fake I.D. He was held without bond.

The rest of this week’s Arlington County crime report should be released later today.

    That’s right; even Arlington’s thugs reject screwtop wines. Top that, Georgetown.

    but was it a chain-store wine opener or was it from a boutique wine-store in Clarendon that you have to walk to in order to make a purchase/

  • Frenchy B

    I bet the robber tried to steal the guy’s Grey Poupon too.

    • SoArlRes

      Good one.

    • rft

      but of course

    A fake ID at 28? What did want to be, 21 again?

  • mugabo

    BTW, it is called a corkscrew everywhere else in that country.
