Arlington County police frequently escort VIPs like the president and visiting heads of state as they travel to and through Arlington.
On Thursday morning, ACPD conducted a different sort of escort along a local highway. Rather than driving in limos, these VIPs waddled along the pavement.
I was driving down I-66 around 10:00 am this morning near Spout Run and saw the craziest thing—- Make Way for Ducklings! There was a whole family of ducks proudly strutting down the first lane of I-66. @ArlingtonVaPD was on scene. Hoping someone (@ARLnowDOTcom?) had a photo.

The waterfowl family — they turned out to be geese and not ducks — ended up making it safely off the busy highway thanks to the assist from a quick-thinking and animal-loving detective.
“At approximately 10 a.m., a detective traveling on EB I-66 prior to Spout Run Parkway came upon a family of geese walking in the lane of travel,” recounted Arlington County Police Department spokeswoman Ashley Savage. “He activated his emergency lights and helped escort them down the ramp, where they exited the roadway.”
No word on where the family of two adults and five little ones ended up.
