Thanks to Jana B. I ran across this -- how did I miss this?!:
For immediate release: December 17, 2008
Metro Transit Police have arrested a Southwest Washington, D.C., woman for allegedly stabbing a man during a large fight at the U Street Metrorail station in Northwest Washington.
Police arrested Dekeria Green, 18, yesterday evening and charged her with one count of assault with a deadly weapon.
Investigators say a fight started between two groups the night of Saturday, Dec. 13 inside the Republic Gardens night club at 13th and U streets. The groups left the club but the fight started again outside the Metrorail station and continued inside the station. Police say Green was involved in the fight and allegedly stabbed a 19-year-old Northwest, Washington man inside the station. The victim fled on a train to the Columbia Heights Metrorail station. He was treated and released from a local hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
Security cameras at the station are aiding police in their investigation, and detectives say more arrests are possible. The Metropolitan Police Department also assisted in the investigation.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to call 202-962-1792.
ErnEdits snabbed the footage of Monica singing at the The Butler-Wyatt Boys and Girls Club last Thursday. TheFlyGirl sits down with Monicaas she shares her thoughts on raising her two boys and her new television series:

Head here a little later for an open bar from 10-11 PM. The party goes until 2 AM. Here's a peek of the video:
Last Saturday, Mayor Adrian Fenty used his 38th birthday to kick off his campaign for re-election. Held at the home of Karen and Chris Donatelli, active builders in DC, Mayor Fenty endured his party despite the rainy weather and protesters who complained that the Mayor sold government property (i.e. schools, libraries etc.) only to make condominiums as well as the apparent issue of homelessness in the District.

Clyburn for his public service. Read more here...
The Good: The bartenders had heavy hands so most people were really enjoying themselves. Also, the ambiance at Tuscana has only been more enhanced by their recent renovations. With drapes, dramatic lighting, a warm and cozy fireplace in one nook of the lounge and an ultra cool room in the other corner of the lounge, away from the dance floor, all make for a diverse lounge and a diverse party experience. I have too many friends born in December and everyone seemed to be celebrating here. Happy birthday to Adriene, Keara and Fisayo! :)
The Bad: The door was totally disorganized, not to mention getting a table was not only confusing but time consuming (and who wants to waste time getting it together, especially when you're celebrating a birthday?!). My suggestion is to have reserve signs so the people actually spending money don't have to boot people out of their own table.
The Ugly: See 'The Good" then add about a few hours for the alcohol to kick in and you got some people getting.it.in. on the dance floor. Think T.I's "Porn Star" song...
