Police: Drunk, naked wife visits husband in jail

Maura Fussell, 26, of Reston, is charged with indecent exposure and being drunk in public for a late night visit to the Arlington County jail. (Arlington County Police Department)

Maura Fussell, 26, put some clothes on for her mugshot. (Arlington County Police Department)

“For better or worse” is a vow some married couples don’t take seriously.

But not in Arlington, Va., where a drunk, naked wife rushed to the aid of her husband at the county jail.

ARLnow.com reports Maura Fussell showed up at the Arlington Magistrate’s Office at about 11 p.m. last Saturday. She was there to see her husband, who had been arrested earlier in the day on unspecified charges in Clarendon.

Fussell, 26, was drunk, completely naked and refused to get dressed or leave in a cab, police said.

The Washington Post tries to piece together how this sort of thing could possibly happen.

The Shamrock Crawl, advertised as Arlington’s largest bar crawl, was held from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday, and though [police were] not certain the woman was a pub crawler, “anybody who was in Clarendon that afternoon was participating one way or the other.”

Fussell was arrested on indecent exposure and public drunk charges and held until sober and clothed.

What? No column today having to do with religion or homosexuality? But this is supposed to be a humor column, and there are few things more humorous than delusional cult members making absolute statements about their invisible magical primate buddy who controls the physics of the universe with his powers of mental telepathy. (Or their assertion that the world was populated via incest…twice.) Oh well, a drunken naked woman staging an assault on a police department is almost as good. Good thing she didn’t live in Biblical times and have to experience the “love” of god as reprisal for her transgressions.

But Jeez, George! I’m so GREAT when when I get on one of my mindless rants belittling other people’s beliefs, don’t you think?

You sound too much here like my family—wishing I’d just grow up and get a life.

“Anybody who was in Clarendon that afternoon was participating one way or the other.”

Ah, I remember those pub crawls well…. at least the first hour of them. They were basically Mardi Gras North, and any shred of dignity and class people had going into them was usually out the window halfway through. The old Buckhead party district pailed in comparison.

That’s a good woman there. Any woman who will go naked and drunk to the jailhouse to see her man is A1 with me. Wish I had a woman like that in my life when I was young. Nothing but self centered little beeches in north Florida. Her man needs to treat her to breakfast at the Waffle House and a trip to Panama City when she gets out,

GUTRAKE appears to be off his meds and left detox way too soon. He must be somebody’s neighbor, but glad he is not mine!

Baltisraul- It’s generally the people who believe in invisible magic beings who need meds, and when people go into detox that’s when they “find” that invisible magic being. Prisoners tend to find “Him” once they’re placed behind bars with other same-sex felons. So which are you, a delusional cult member in need of medication, a recovering addict, or a convicted felon trying to repress homosexual tendencies?

Wow….

You know if this was was unattractive and overweight – the media would not even mention this – but here you have a young attractive WF – so this will raise some eyebrows – and thus it’s news worthy.

I don’t blame the media for publishing stories like this because it sells.

i.e. Jody Arias – here you had a very attractive young WF who kills her boyfriend – this act is so extreme for a “type” of person such as this – we can use this story to increase our ratings and sell our papers.

NOT MAD AT CHA CUZ IT’S LIFE.

If Jody Arias was fat, ugly – came from the trailer park or getto (committing the same crime) this story would not even make the local news program…

Oh well it is what it is.

You know life is full of hipocracy.

i.e. – a writer wrote a song about growing up poor and all the young ladies he tried to talk to did not want to have anything to do with him…but once he hit the big time – those same young ladies now want to be with him or get to know him.

On the flip side of that – if you have a lot of money – you have a lot of “friends” – but once that money is gone – nobody wants to be bothered with you.

IT’S LIFE…………….

OH WELL

Most pleasant-looking mugshot I’ve ever seen. Wonder where the clothes came from they “allowed” her to put on? How long did it take them to obtain them? Where was she and what was she doing while awaiting the clothes? Inquiring minds want to know! Details, details !

I may not have told you this, but my mother-in-law is a little tiny witch with a personality disorder, coupled with incontinence. Now that her dementia has made her bedridden, we have asked the euthanasia team from Oregon to over-dose her today. You won’t be hearing much more from her. Cremation and scattered in EduKtr’s backyard. Because he is unable to spell, we won’t ask for any headstone. Because he still uses that old outhouse – we would thought it would be a nice tribute to both of them.
