We value your support now more than ever.

All year we’ve been covering the issues that matter most to you—the pandemic, the election, policing, housing, and more—and now our end of year membership campaign is here. Will you support our work to ensure we can bring you the same informative local reporting in 2021?

Looks like WUSA’s Andrea McCarren isn’t backing down quite yet. Even though there were reports that the reporter would be switching beats in order to stave off bullying of her kids after she reported on a local liquor store that was selling to minors, her by-line is on the most yesterday’s story about the owner being arrested:

57 year-old Richard Dan Ki Kim, the owner of Town Square Market on MacArthur Boulevard in Northwest Washington was arrested, handcuffed and detained by police late Saturday night, charged with selling alcohol to a minor.

A 17 year-old high school student was also arrested, cuffed and detained for buying the alcohol. Minutes before, police had observed a carload of three young men park outside the store and watched one of them go to the counter, buy the alcohol and leave. When he came outside, police asked him for identification, which he had, although it belonged to someone else. All three young men are students at a high school in Arlington.
