Bar Connected to Moran Arrest to Donate Sales to Anti-Violence Group
Looks like a little bit of good news is coming out of the strange story of Patrick Moran, the son of Virginia Rep. Jim Moran. Moran pleaded guilty yesterday to attacking his girlfriend outside Columbia Heights bar The Getaway earlier this month, and while both Moran's girlfriend and his father say her injuries were accidental, the bar wants nothing to do with them.
In a post on its Facebook page first reported by DCist, The Getaway denied that Moran drank at their bar the night he attacked his girlfriend. "As an establishment that serves alcohol and also a member of the Columbia Heights and DC community we want all of our neighbors and patrons to be safe from this kind of violence," the post reads.
Nevertheless, in light of the incident The Getaway plans to donate 15 percent of its total sales from this Sunday to Break the Cycle, a group that works to stop domestic violence.
