A brawl outside of an Arlington County courtroom sent one man to the hospital Tuesday morning.

A woman’s boyfriend and her ex-husband got into a physical fight as a result of a child custody dispute at the Arlington County Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court (1425 N. Court House Road), according to Arlington County Police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck.

Sheriff’s deputies broke up the fight. One of the men was punched in the face and was transported to Virginia Hospital Center for “very minor injuries,” according to Sternbeck.

The man who was brought to the hospital, 38-year-old D.C. resident Maron Moss, Jr., was identified as the “aggressor” and charged with assault and battery, Sternbeck said. The second man was not charged.

    Is it snowing out there today?

      Apparently in Courthouse it is. Up here in Ballston, it’s sunny and unseasonably warm today.

    Ex-Husband’s motivation: He is paying child support which is used by his ex-wife and her boyfriend to have a good time rather than spending it on the children.
