  • wow

    well according to the MD courts website this fine young man has 21 traffic violations. that’s quite a tally for someone in his 20s.

    • west_egg

      Yes but we’re talking about a Maryland driver here. In that context, 21 violations is impressively low.

  • spookiness

    Maryland no surprise there. Thumbs up on the speed of arrest though.

    Good to hear there was an arrest. Does anyone know more about this story? Was this a random assault? Either way a tragedy.

  • gonzo

    How did I miss something like this a block from my house?

    Is there a link to the original story? I don’t recall hearing about this.

    • I missed the original release – it’s here:

      “Monday, August 24, 2015

      Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch are investigating a homicide that was the result of an assault. On Saturday, August 22, 2015, at approximately 3:00 am, members of the Third District received a call for the report of a fight in the 700 block of Fairmont Street, Northwest. Upon arrival, officers located an unconscious adult male victim. The investigation revealed the victim was involved in an altercation, in which he was assaulted, fell to the ground, and struck his head on the sidewalk/curb area. DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services responded to the scene and transported him to a local hospital.
