News Brief: One Loudon Arrests Increase

Jonathan Coello, staff writer

At least 10 people were arrested at One Loudoun for public intoxication in the middle of the night.


On Feb.25, these individuals were charged for harassing women, disorderly conduct, obstruction of justice, and assault.


This investigation could possibly reveal that the many bars at One Loudoun are what caused many individuals to become intoxicated, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office.


Redskins assistant coach Jack A. Gruden, son of head coach Jay Gruden, was charged for being drunk in public after being involved in a series of verbal altercations.


Gruden was in a quarrel with another man. The deputy intervened and the two parties were separated.


Gruden was then involved in two more confrontations with customers in the area.


He was charged with assault after the first incident that was caught on video at 2 a.m. Dec. 18.


A Redskins safety was also arrested at One Loudoun after a verbal altercation with a male and female turned into a physical one. The victims were taken to a local hospital for “serious but non-life threatening injuries.”


Montae N. Nicholson was charged with assault, battery, and drunk in public following the incident. He was released from the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center on a $2,500 secured bond, according to the Loudoun Times-Mirror.


The string of arrests has caused some to wonder if regulations for bars at One Loudoun should be changed to prevent the plaza from worsening. A new Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office station at One Loudoun could also potentially deter more crime from happening.
