    If I had a 1999 Isuzu van and someone stole it from me, I would thank them.

    • BrownFlipFlops

      I had a 1991 Camry stolen in Fairlington a few years ago. The thief drove it some, and then dumped it a few lots over. That’s right – he gave it back.

      …talk about insulting. I know it wasn’t a 1960 Ferrari California, but at least show a LITTLE interest!

        That’s like the old “50-pound bicycle rule”. All bicycles weigh 50 pounds. A 20-pound bicycle needs 30 pounds of chain, a 30-pound bike needs 20, etc. A 50-pound bike doesn’t need a chain since no one will steal it! Of course, that rule was developed before the age of downhill bikes.

    I hope the destruction of property series didn’t occur to cars at the Auto Stop. I’m taking my car there tonight.

  • Tre

    I don’t know why the peeping tom captions crack me up.

    • me

      How was the one dude peeping into that hotel? Was he on stilts?

  • KalashniKEV

    I’ll bet Mr. De Jesus Bonilla could have gotten his kiss at the ArtisFAIL… though probably not from an athletic lady!

    • SoCo Resident

      Wedge a hateful homophobic comment in where you can.

    • Bringmetheyuppies

      Kevin do you need me to take you to Freddies so you can finally come out of the closet. Me thinks thou protest about the artisphere via gay people a little too much.

    “She broke free of his embrace”

    The term embrace wouldn’t have been my first choice in describing this assualt. The county’s description of this attack almost sounds like a line out of a romance novel.

    • Ostrich

      He loved her so dearly that he got the embrace and the fondness out of order!

    • Dude Where’s My Car

      “Escaped his evil clutches” wouldn’t have worked either. Unless Mr. Bonilla twirled his mustache and exclaimed “Curses! Foiled again!” when he was arrested.

      • JQ

        Hey barlington, how did you find out about the prior assault? I only ask because the woman this happened to is actually a friend of mine.

  • ArlingtonNative

    I’m just bummed that we don’t get to read about the antics of more deer out on I-66 this morning! It made for nice, lite reading over the morning cup of coffee.

  • Arlington Angel

    Mr. Bonilla has a history of assaulting and kissing not only women, but young girls!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He is a very sick man!

    The Arlington County Police Departments Special Victims Unit is investigating an incident that occurred yesterday afternoon at the Washington and Lee High School track in the 1300 block of N. Stafford Street.

    On December 14 at 4:30 p.m., a 14 year old female was standing with a group of teenagers at the track, when a man she did not know approached. The suspect spoke to the girl in Spanish. When she attempted to leave the area, the suspect grabbed the teenager and would not release her. He also kissed her on the forehead. Other students confronted the intoxicated suspect, and he let her go. Police located the suspect nearby.

  • KalashniKEV

    I wonder what the immigration status of Mr. De Jesus Bonilla and Mr. Flores happens to be…

  • dynaroo

    You’re starting to sound like the Gestapo: “Hmmm…Lichstein, is dat a Jewish name?”
