Big Brawl At Bailey’s in Ballston

Arlington police responded to a large fight at Bailey’s Pub (4238 Wilson Blvd) in the Ballston Common Mall last week.

It’s not clear what started the brawl, but it quickly grew in size and prompted a large police response. Six people were arrested and several people were taken to Virginia Hospital Center for injuries. At least one police officer suffered minor injuries but did not require hospitalization, according to Arlington County Police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck.

“A huge melee broke out and spread into the mall,” Sternbeck said of the early Wednesday morning incident. “Nobody wanted to cooperate with police.”
