Arlington man, James Watson, arrested after beating up roommate who drew a penis on his face

Too many drinks, passing out and a childish prank results in one man getting arrested and the other getting the crap beat out of him.

According to Arlington County Police, 31-year-old James Watson passed out drunk on the couch Saturday, only to wake up and find a penis drawn on his face with permanent marker.

Watson, obviously infuriated, immediately suspected his unnamed roommate for the prank and ran to his room, jumped on his sleeping friend and pounded his face.

A third roommate was awoken by the early morning hijinks and broke up the fight.

The victim of the assault called police about one and a half hours later to press charges.

James Denham Watson, 31, of Arlington, VA, was arrested and charged with malicious wounding. He was held without bond.

Possibly even worse for Watson, he didn’t remove the magic marker phallic artwork that graced his face and his mugshot has since been plastered on numerous websites.
