Partying Millennials Trash Clarendon, Lyon Village
I've lived near Clarendon a long time but this weekend was the worst ever for bad behavior by Millennials in Clarendon. Assaults, fights, urinating in public, people falling while drunk and hurting themselves, DWI and DUI, and so on. This behavior wasn't confined to the Clarendon Strip but spilled over into Lyon Village. Arlington Police could only react as best they could. I understand the Arlington Police are exasperated but the County Board, especially Jay Fisette and Mary Hynes (who lives near Clarendon and hears constant complaints about the partying), are all for more Millennial partying up and down the B-R corridor. The Millennial Mayhem finally stopped about 4 AM this morning. I understand there were dozens of arrests. Many others just took off before the cops showed up. And it isn't even St. Patrick's Day yet.
Thanks for running features that the local media wont run or dare not run. The ArlNow blog is the worst. Of, by, and for the Millennial urban hipsters.
