    FYI, the DMV on 4 Mile Run was open on Saturday, too.

  • Overgrown Bush

    “He has been identified as 40-year-old Anthony Randolph. He has been charged with DUI but not with the hit-and-run on the Key Bridge. ”

    This kills me. He has not been charged with the hit and run? He had front end damage and two flat tires on I270! Surely, they can match debris from the scene to his vehicle. He should be charged with murder or manslaughter. The only thing that is going to save this guy is the fact that the Virginia man was walking in the roadway.

    So have the figured out what the status of women is yet?

    • OX4

      Apparently most of them have poor vision.

  • Arlwhenever

    It would be great political theater if Tribbett runs so we can watch him butt heads with his buddy Chris Zimmerman (who Ben calls a “narcissistic jackass”).

    • borf

      It’s funny when a blogger calls someone a narcissistic jackass.

  • I hope Zimmie runs… and WINS.

    That way he will be off the CB and out of our hair.

  • Southeast Ben

    Who administered the breathalyzer? Washington DC’s won’t hold up in court currently.

    • US Park Police administered the breathalyzer on the person accused of hitting the cop, I believe.
