“Eva Nash said she and her husband heard loud shouts outside of their house on the 1200 block of Neal Street NE shortly after 11 p.m. They looked out to see a crowd of 20 to 30 people of various ages on the street and sidewalks, with at least three separate fights occurring. Nash watched as one fighter body-slammed another onto her Mini Cooper, denting the hood.”
The report says the Nash family was unimpressed with the MPD officer’s response as none of the combatants were detained. The family that filed the complaint were also told “that officers are told not to engage with large crowds if it might put them in danger” according to the Post report.

“Lighthouse Yoga Center is moving to 4203 9th Street NW in mid-April. This is the little yellow building next to the Petworth post office, just north of Upshur. The building is in great shape and it’s going to make a beautiful yoga studio! We’re just waiting for the current tenant to move out, and we plan to open at the new location on April 22. We’ll keep running classes at the current site until then, and we expect minimal disruption to our business from the move.”
