Video: Colbert Reads Yelp Review of Arlington Jail

Comedian Stephen Colbert devoted part of his Comedy Central show on Monday to a four-star Yelp review of the Arlington County Detention Facility.

Colbert read from the review, which praised the jail for offering juice boxes and a “very clean environment.”

“If you’re going to get arrested, do it in Arlington County,” Colbert said, reading from the review.

“I think Arlington tourism just found its new slogan,” he quipped.
