To bring attention to what he claims is an unfair, long-overdue fee, one Wally Severino handcuffed himself to the C Street DMV Tuesday seeking to get arrested. Police really didn’t want to arrest him — “This is not going to solve anything other than to get you locked up,” they told him — but he eventually got what he wanted. So congrats, Wally, attention gotten. WRC-TV and WJLA-TV were there to report.
