Arlington County Police Department badgeThree people were arrested last week on prostitution charges after Arlington County police found a man and a woman allegedly engaging in sexual activity in the parking lot of the McDonald’s restaurant at 3013 Columbia Pike.

The incident happened around 10:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 12. According to police, a man and a woman were observed entering the restaurant and sitting by the front window. At one point the woman reportedly got up and started talking on a cell phone, at which time another man arrived.

The woman and the second man got into an SUV, drove to the back of the restaurant, and engaged in sexual activity after exchanging $20, according to Arlington County Police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck. The vehicle was described as a Pontiac Aztek, and police say it was owned by the first man, who remained inside the restaurant. Police say they observed the sexual activity and arrested all three suspects.

The first man, identified by police as 69-year-old Richard Arden Leonard of Arlington, was charged with promoting prostitution with a vehicle. The woman, 48-year-old Angelia Kennedy of Alexandria, was charged with prostitution. The second man, 33-year-old Osman Javier Mejia of Arlington, was charged with soliciting a prostitute. All three suspects were released on a court summons.

    They need to add a charge of ‘Driving a Pontiac Aztek”, which, if it isn’t a crime, certainly ought to be.

    • JamesE

      much worse than prostitution

    • SteamboatWillie

      He was just Breaking Bad in that Aztek.

    • Columbia Pike Y’all

      So quick to cite the most egregious infraction. It appears my help is not needed here. Carry on.

      • ChefJ

        Agreed. I have nothing to add, but I do want to have a beer with you guys! Hilarious…

      Wonder if it was an orange aztec. . . would match a vehicle description from a few months ago:

      ROBBERY, 06/25/12, 600 block of S. 12th Street. On June 25 at 10:30 pm, an unknown male subject ran up behind the victim and snatched her purse. The subject fled the scene on foot and was witnessed getting into a orange Pontiac Aztec. The subject is described as a white male in his 50’s, approximately 5’6” tall and was thin. He was wearing all black clothing and a hat at the time of the incident.

      • Joe

        Whoa! Good catch!

      • ChefJ

        Historical reference FTW!

  • novasteve

    Damn, Chicken Mcnuggets are still like gold when it comes to women!

    • bman


      McRIB is back!

  • Lizard Larry

    Not exactly the happy meal I had in mind.

  • Captain_Obvious

    “I got these cheeseburgers, man”

  • Ronald M

    Kind of puts a new spin on, “And do you want fries with that”??

  • golden “arches”

    you say happy meal, i say happy ending……potato, patato…

  • Arlington CAt

    48 years old and twenty bucks. I can now calculate how much my wife is worth.

  • drax

    When there’s a trolley, they can have sex on it instead.

  • ShirliMan

    McDonalds…over xxx (some number )serviced.

  • drax

    Supersize it!

  • Gus

    Police hit the door, the guy inside said: Oh, no, let me walk on the sunshine a little more…

  • fedworker

    “Police say they observed the sexual activity….”

    …and would like their money back.

  • Columbia Piking

    This means we need MORE committed affordable housing on the Pike…

    • Gill

      I agree! Housing is over priced! leading 50 year old women to prostitution at a mc donalds!

  • Hank

    69 years old and still pimpin’? THAT is pimp. Most 69 year-olds hanging out at McDonald’s buy a cup of coffee and sit inside reading the paper for three hours. This guy is making a living.

    • mickey_

      At his age, the coffee is FREE! And you get to ride in his Asstech

    • The Banker

      What’s the pimp’s cut of $20?

  • South Awwlington

    What, no mug shot?

    • facebook

      google her name, i think i may have her pic.

  • Luna

    Drugs are dealed in that parking lot, now prossy tooshan? Oooooohh, was the sex act on the dollar menu?

    The whole area is going to the dogs.

  • mickey_

    My ex is worth at least two happy meals and a free ride in the Asstech.

  • Neighbor

    I thought their cherry pies were still 2 for $1?

  • Yannick

    Never go south of Columbia Pike or Route 50. Don’t go there.

    • Buckingham Bandit

      The command [NOT SOUTH OF (VA-244 OR US-50)] is redundant since all of Columbia Pike is south of Arlington Boulevard. You could have said “never go south of Route 50”, to the same effect.

  • internet tourettes

    So was their a stake out or patrol thats led to this arrest? Nope, the police just wanted to get that sasuage mcmuffin (pun?) before the breakfast menu changed and ran in to this.

  • Over educated

    This does not fit a standard economic model. A 48 year-old should be paying a 33 year-old, not the other way around.

    I wonder what Chris Zimmerman’s cut was for the $20 transaction?

    • ARL’er

      Depends on the 33-yr-old. I’m guessing he doesn’t exactly have movie-star looks. Or a fat wallet.

    • ChefJ

      Beotch don’t get no percent – Ho gets 100% of my pimpin’ – so she give me 100%… of … the… MONEY.

  • Tres Lewis

    I thought Burger King was where you could have it your way.

  • ElChombon

    Pictures pictures pictures!!!!!!!!!!

  • CD

    Drug dealing and prostitution up and down the Pike are outrageous, especially in and around the re-development in-fill

  • janedough

    This thread wins the pot for the greatest percentage of really funny posts in a long while

  • Gibby

    At least SOMEBODY was lovin’ it!

  • Sarcastic Jane

    and it wasn’t even during a Mc Ribb serving time! Honestly, not surprised due to the reputation of the hotel across the street and that Mc D’s is notoriously patronized by some questionable characters.

  • VaSqJay

    I know nothing about drugs, pimps, or hookers, but can $20 possibily get you? Wife thinks a mouth hug, I think a hand jibber.

    • Tabby_TwoTone

      I’d be inclined to agree with you. Either way, awful, sad.

  • Zach

    McDonalds is serving crabs now?

  • Zach II

    The sign says 1 Billion Customers Served. This poor woman has been busy!

  • former john

    As the resident self loathing former john busted by acpd this summer. I feel like a fool. I paid 140. After what acpd did to break up the 3000 block operation you would think people would steer clear.

  • Tora

    Listen guys, I was the women involved in this incident and it was all just a big misunderstanding…I thought the person identified as the “second man” was a McDonald’s employee and asked him for the “special sauce” on the side…
