Arlington County (Va.) P.D. Confirms Assault on Ex-‘Gay’ PFOX Volunteer

Last week, we spoke with John Lisle, a spokesman for the Arlington County, Virginia, Police Department, who confirmed PFOX’s account of the assault August 18 at the Arlington Country Fair — homosexual activists’ claims of fraud against PFOX notwithstanding. Click HERE to view the original PFOX release describing an assault that “gay” bloggers Wayne Besen (Truth Wins Out), Jim Burroway (Box Turtle Bulletin) and David Roberts (Ex-GayWatch) said never happened.

The following is Lisle’s statement, e-mailed to Americans For Truth on September 11 (emphasis added):

Here is what I can tell you about the alleged incident at the Arlington County Fair on August 18.
I have now spoken to two officers who are familiar with an incident similar to what has been described [i.e., by PFOX–Editor].


One officer told me this week he was on patrol at the Fair when a woman approached him and told him a man had knocked over pamphlets at the PFOX booth and assaulted another man there.


The officer then spoke to the alleged victim.  He did not want to press charges and therefore no written report was filed.


Based on the description the officer was given, he located the suspect at the Fair.  Another officer escorted that gentleman off the Fair grounds.


If you have any additional questions please let me know.
