It is important to point out that this bad conduct was NOT the Congressman — it is his son….so anyone blaming the Congressman, should back off. I imagine this is a horrible personal crisis for the Congressman and his family – and what he doesn’t need is people blaming him for his son’s bad conduct.
(Chances are your family or someone you know has had some “unfortunate” scrapes…)
Below information is from FNC’s Chad Pergram:
Democratic congressman Jim Moran’s son, Patrick Moran, has pleaded guilty to beating his girlfriend. The assualt outside a nightclub left Moran’s girlfriend with bloody nose and a fractured skull.
“The event occurred on Saturday December 1, 2012 at approximately 0123 hours in front of ‘The Getaway’ 3400 14th St NW Washington DC PSA 409,” reads the police report.
“MPD Sgt. Paul, S from the Fifth District Vice unit along with ABRA investigator Stewart, Craig observed a white male, later found to be known as D-1 (Moran) grab a white female by the back of her head with his hand and slam her head into the metal trash can cage in front of the nightclub ‘The Getaway’. After both parties were separated investigation revealed that the female (CW-1) was D-1’s girlfriend and they had been in an argument inside the nightclub over D-1 talking to another femaie inside the club. CW-1 stated that she and D-1 have been together for six months,” the report continues.
“The argument filtered outside where D-1 then assaulted CW-1. Officer Murphy (4041) and Officer Anderson (Curfew 42) responded to assist. Officer Murphy observed CW-1 to be bleeding heavily from her nose and also observed that i her nose and right eye were extremely swollen. Ambulance 11 responded to the scene for treatment and transportation to Howard Hospital. The medical technician advised Officer Murphy that CW-1’s nose looked to be broken and that her right socket could possibly be fractured which is actually considered a skull fracture.
“D-1 was placed under arrest for Felony Assault, Domestic Violence and was transported to the Fourth District for processing. Officer Murphy who is a certified crime scene technician processed the crime scene.”
