Crime Report: Eluding Police, Temporarily

by ARLnow.com April 28, 2011 at 9:00 am 2,880 20 Comments

In this week’s Arlington County crime report, a woman is accused of speeding around a police cruiser, with her hazard lights on, for no apparent reason. The officer tried to stop the vehicle but did not pursue it when the woman refused to pull over, per department policy, according to police. While doing a search of the area, however, police say the woman’s SUV was found parked in the middle of a busy street with music blaring. The woman was not in the car — she was allegedly found in a nearby office building.

  • Texting and driving. It should get the same penalty as DUI.

      I’m hoping to see a slow and steady progression towards taking negligent driving more seriously. I take some hope in the fact that it wasn’t all that long ago that DUI was a rarely enforced offense, with police often deciding “Well, he’s not *that* drunk” and sending someone on his way. The law – and even more importantly, society – has come around on that in a big way.* I hope we’ll get to a point that we realize that everyone behind the wheel of a vehicle is wielding a deadly weapon, and has the responsibility to control it with an immense amount of care.

      *Perhaps too far, but that’s another topic.

    Whenever I pass a police car I do a wicked burnout.

  • Rick

    I’m surprised to only see one report from the Ballston area. The riff raff at Baileys are usually accountable for 3 or 4 of the weeks crimes…

  • dynaroo

    Those kids had stolen property and weed, and all they got was detention?

    • DB

      That’s what they call the kiddie jail in VA.

      • dynaroo

        Thanks for deflating the joke.

  • Arlwhenever

    The suspect “was wearing a Chicago Cubs baseball cap” acting out 104 years of frustration.

    • yequalsy

      Or he’s one of those over-grown children that infest the bleachers at Wrigley.

    Where is the crime report for the destruction of property and fights that happened at Spider Kellys on 4/22 -23 ??
    The Arlington Police had the whole block on lockdown at last call.

    Rosslyn Heights, once again in the hood. I’d say it has more crime than any other complex in the County…..

    • V Dizzle

      …like saying your tall for a midget.

      • bob

        so 15 breakin, auto thefts, bike thefts, rapes and mugging in the past year are cheap change?

    • Thomas Quigley

      I’m not familiar with problems at Rosslyn Heights. Why is there such a high crime rate there. Had some friends that lived there in the late 90s and it seemed like a nice place then.

    The article continued: “Scipio had been shouting ‘Et ceterum censeo Carthago delenda est.'” Before being stabbed.

      Is this our pretext for sacking Alexandria?

      • Aaron

        Better to sack Alexandria than invade Manassas.

    Ahahaaha, that music and the patrol cars woke me up. They had several officers surrounding an empty vehicle. It was pretty funny in a sad way.

  • Maria

    LOL wicked burnouts… =)

    I wonder how much it cost us to have police officers surround an empty vehicle and search an office building in order to charge the woman…

    She must have been under the influence
