[Updated 11/29/2012] Richard Scully, a 49-year-old lawyer, is in trouble for allegedly beating up his 26-year-old ex-girlfriend in Glover Park last week, according to The Washingtonian. He is due in court on August 1 for the incident.
An editor's note on the Washingtonian article writes:
EDITOR'S UPDATE: The US Attorney's office dropped the charges against Scully on October 9. Mark Schamel, a partner at Womble Carlyle, Sandridge & Rice, who is now representing Scully, says the prosecutor’s investigation of the case found evidence that contradicted the alleged victim’s version of events. “The arrest was made based on a false allegation,” Schamel told The Washingtonian.
Yay, what good news for Richard!
The Washingtonian also reported that he used to be married to Washington Post publisher Katharine Weymouth. They wed in 1998 and divorced six years later.
The Washington Post makes no mention of the story. Cold!
The incident allegedy happened right by the Holy Rood Cemetery and Harvey Middle School, on Whitehaven Parkway NW.
He features one quote on his facebook page,
"Don't worry when you are not recognized, but strive to be worthy of recognition." -Abraham Lincoln

Mood Lounge, a nightclub in Shaw, has permanently lost its liquor license after a stabbing incident during the wee hours of December 30th left two men critically injured (they are expected to recover).
[Photo via] Well (thankfully) this party escaped our Calendar radar. But that doesn't mean we will forget about a recap post! Apparently some serious and mischievous partying went down in North Sea last Friday night. When the 47-year old Manhattan man came back to his home on Bridies Path after leaving Aug. 21, he was surprised to find used condoms and $170 worth of wine, champagne and food missing from his fridge, according to Patch. I'm imagining something like Jake Ryan's party in Sixteen Candles. More»
I never ride the subway late at night, in fact I don't go out unless I have an extra $20 in my pocket and I know I can grab a cab late at night after the bar. It's the "responsible" thing to do, be prepared and be safe right? So you can imagine my shock when I was mugged broad daylight in front of tons of people. More»
via la.guestofaguest.com: America's #1 luxury lifestyle magazine, Travel & Leisure, just released their "America's Favorite Cities" survey, where respondents rank the Best and Worst. LA was #3 in ...dirt and trash. Ouch! Those who live in Los Angeles are not happy and pointing fingers at other cities. MORE>>>
'Sampling bias' refers to when the group of people chosen to conduct a survey or research study do not represent the full group that is supposedly being studied. For example, if we published a study called "LA's Favorite Bars," and then we only interview the drunk 16-year olds puking outside the Key Club, you might read it and end up thinking that the consensus best bar in LA is a K-Town grocery store that doesn't ask for ID when they sell Four Loko. This concept also applies to Travel & Leisure Magazine, and their "America's Favorite Cities" survey which I feel was off on more than a few key points. More»
So Travel & Leisure Magazine, America's #1 luxury lifestyle magazine owned by a credit card company, released the 2010 results for their staggeringly comprehensive "America's Favorite Cities" survey, where respondents rank everything from Best Nightlife to Best Antique Stores. And as we've already been conditioned to expect from nationwide surveys like this, L.A. got trashed. Since the survey separated visitors and residents, I can't even blame it all on out-of-towners who got mugged by a tranny on Hollywood Boulevard, but I still can't help but feel like it was off on a few key points. Let's start by examining three of the most glaring mistakes, along with the cities that should have been in that spot. More»
What's the best way to get people interested in a bottomed-out acting career? You could study with masters of your craft, do some cerebral theater roles and- haha, just kidding! This is L.A. If you want attention, drunk-drive into multiple parked cars, flee the scene, get arrested, and then kick the cops and escape from the police station! That's what Estella Warren, "star" of yesteryear megahits got up to last night. More»
