Arlington police deal with rise in 'exposure'
The crime log — a list of police activity — is often rather dull. Sure, that's how you'll get the occasional story about the ass slasher, or showering bandit, or guy found with a blow up doll in a closet — we're getting ahead of ourselves here. The point is, weird crime happens all the time, but never have we seen such a glorious amount of guys exposing themselves. Congratulations, Arlington, you've had five over a three-day span!
