  • How ironic. An article on exposure to a teen right after an article on summer camp volunteers needed! LOL Let’s not give them any ideas!

  • JamesE

    Need video of rap battle

  • More Info…

    I witnessed a police chase on foot down N George Mason Drive b/t Quincy and Route 50 on 6/5/2011 around 7pm or 8pm. Wonder why it didn’t make the Crime Report. Anyone have any info?

    • nrny2arlva

      During the Memorial Day week-end there was a body found behind the Walgreens on Lee Highway, I didn’t see anything iin the Crime Report about that either. Anyone have any info?

      • Derp

        What? Really?

        • nrny2arlva

          Yes, since nothing was mentioned on TV or in any Newspapers you want to say that there was no foul play, just like the body that was found in the Days Inn.

  • PhilL

    Violent mobs of teens at the Westover 7-11? Must be all that amplified rock and roll music in the neighborhood.

    • Wilson

      Lots of low-income housing right there, unfortunately. Odds are the kids were from those apts–though not necessarily.

  • Derp

    would be interested to hear more about this one…

    ASSAULT BY MOB, 06/05/11, 3700 block of Fairfax Drive. On June 5 at 2 am, a large group of disorderly people left a restaurant. Two male victims were located who had been assaulted and robbed of various items. There is no suspect description.

    there were literally a dozen or more police cars, along w/ ambulances and fire trucks on the scene… Though it wasn’t really at 3700 Fairfax… They had blocked off the stretch of N. Jackson that runs between the Hess and Jiffy Lube w/ a lot of the activity seemingly focused in front of Costa Verde. Also, undercover cars zooming around the neighborhoods looking for people. Quite the commotion.

    • Modwop

      We drove by there just before midnight on Saturday, about two hours before the incident cited in the crime report. There was a pretty big crowd milling around the parking area (which is tiny) and a lot of cars parked all over the place, including the JiffyLube. I searched Twitter to find out what the deal was (since Costa Verde has a lounge suitable for live music) and it seems there was a Go-Go show there that night. Now, I’m not drawing any conclusions or casting aspersions – I love the music – but it just seems like an odd space to book a multi-band Go-Go extravaganza.

  • R0bespierre

    Punched in the face after rap battle…epic…guess he lost

    • doodly

      Did he lose an eye like the hotel worker at the DMV rap battle? The one that was literally a battle?

  • Derp

    although….. it’s usually the one w/out any flow who comes out thinking that violence is the way to go.

  • R0bespierre

    Re: Rap battle…this isnt the battle but its epic…a friend posted it

  • Tabby

    Glad to hear that Meija was caught.

  • BoredHouseWife

    That false summoning of law enforcement is what bothers me. Maybe she was truly scared. But what bothers me more than that scenario, is a serial killer or serial rapist who pose as cops.

    /watched a lot of AMW

  • charlie

    so the VIEWS of CLARENDON aren’t even done and children are already being assaulted in Lyon Village… 1400 Jackson ….

    • doodly

      Yeah, I know – it’s almost as if the Views of Clarendon has nothing to do with crime!

      • AllenB

        That was like shooting fish in a barrel, Doodly.

        • doodly

          Yeah, it makes me think charlie was being sarcastic too.

  • Shirlyyoujest

    All this North Arlington violence has be concerned. I hope we triple the police patrols through that area.

    • Josh S

      Stop calling me Shirly.

  • Maria

    I think “burglarious” is my new favorite word.
