Major crime in Arlington took a bit of a holiday over the long Thanksgiving weekend. One weekend assault and battery incident was somewhat notable, however, for the fact that the victim is a Clarendon bar bouncer.

    What is with this “innocent until proven guilty” crap? Did I not make myself clear years ago when I said if someone was innocent of a crime then they would not be a suspect?

    • Janet Reno

      Yes, but if the suspect was really guilty, then someone in a position of unquestionable moral authority would have set him and his family on fire by this point.

      • Janet Reno

        Accidently after trying for weeks to get them out safely, I should add.

    • Always Right

      It’s called “politically correct” and that is crap!

      • Wow.

        “innocent until proven guilty” is politically correct and is crap? Only in America. I’m sure you simultaneously hate Big Government too?

  • Dalton

    What bar was this at?

    • CW

      The block has Mister Days, SoBe, and Mad Rose. If I had to guess, I’d say the former.

      And I hope this guy fights under the name “Rowdy Rowny”! How awesome is that name?

  • downing street memo

    The bouncer thing happens more than you think, lots of little Napoleons in Arlington who feel the need to prove themselves. (Speaking from experience as a former bouncer in Courthouse.)

    Most of the time, though, you just take care of business and don’t bother calling the cops. Guess it’s a little different when the guy is an MMA fighter.

    • Jimmy

      It’s ok for the bouncer to take matters into his own hands, but when the guy is tougher, he cries to the cops.

      Bouncers seem to enjoy the double standard. I see it all the time.

      • CW

        You don’t know the circumstances. A lot of times the police stand right outside of bars and would notice something like this going on. Also, this guy is listed as 185 lbs so even if he is a skilled fighter (though his style is depicted as “freestyle”), most bar bouncers would just pancake him.

            Wow Rowny’s guard is terrible…closing it against his calf when it is even closed at all, opening it for no reason and then getting passed to half-guard with ease, again, guard open for no reason…my advice is less time at the Mr Days, more time on Mr Mat…

          • KalashniKEV

            Good analysis.

      • downing street memo

        I meant “take care of business” as in “get the guy out of there with as minimal force as possible”. I was assaulted any number of times as a bouncer, you just grab the guy and toss him out, no need to call the cops over it.

        But if things get serious, and you can’t get rid of the guy yourself, you call the cops. Are you suggesting that it’s inappropriate for bouncers to report assaults to the police?

        • drax

          Jimmy thinks bouncers are guys stationed at doors for drunks to fight when they feel like it. That’s their job.

          • Jay

            If someone is a “bouncer” in arlington…….newsflash they are not a real bouncer! dc bouncers make more money and longer shifts. The bouncers in arlington come to “yuppyville” to try and start s–t with kids who just moved in! The bouncer got what he deserves

          • drax

            And more random crap.

        • V Dizzle

          I bet I could kick your a#s…and I’m only 5 foot 2!

          • V Dizzle

            FYI – I’m kidding.

      • downing street memo

        Also, Jesus, way to make the point about “little Napoleons”.

      • Rory

        Absolutely. Their are quite a few little Napoleon’s employed as Bouncers.

    • Grognak

      Also a lot of amateur MMA wannabees around Arlington bars. Freakish losers.

      • KalashniKEV

        I’ll bet you wouldn’t say that to my face in the octagon…

        • KalashniKEV


  • Aaron

    Don’t bouncers make as much money as they do to just stand around and act thuggish because there’s the risk they’ll get involved in physical altercations? I’ve never felt any empathy for them whatsoever. Assaulting a bouncer should be even less of a crime than domestic abuse.

    • Grognak

      I have hung out with a couple of the bouncers, one of which works Ballston and the Ballroom. Nice guys if you get to know them.

  • jslanger

    I think the auto thefts portion is interesting. Apparently owning a blue Yamaha motorcycle gets it stolen :-p
