A trio of intoxicated men got in a tussle in Clarendon after one man fell and another tried to help him up.
The incident happened early Saturday morning on the 1200 block of N. Garfield Street, about a block from the Clarendon Metro station. It started when one man drunkenly stumbled and fell on the ground, according to Arlington County Police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck.
The victim, who was also intoxicated, then tried to help the man up. But, according to police, his kind gesture was misinterpreted by the drunk stumbler’s drunk friend, who thought the two were fighting. He started assaulting the victim, and then the stumbler himself joined in on the melee, Sternbeck said.
Metro Transit and Arlington County police were called to the scene and the two alleged attackers were arrested. The victim was transported to George Washington University Hospital for treatment of his injuries.
