THE DISTRICT
Man is sentenced
in New Year’s crash

A 25-year-old man was sentenced Monday to 42 months in prison for a New Year’s Day car crash that injured more than a dozen people on a sidewalk outside a downtown Washington nightclub near Farragut North.

Malik Marvin Lloyd, of Northeast, pleaded guilty in D.C. Superior Court in March to three counts of assault with significant bodily injury, one count of destruction of property and driving under the influence of alcohol.

In a separate case, Lloyd was sentenced to 36 months in prison after pleading guilty to unlawful possession of a firearm and possession with intent to distribute cocaine. That sentence will be served concurrently with the sentence in the crash.

The nightclub incident occurred about 1:30 a.m. at Barcode in the 1600 block of L Street NW. Lloyd was driving north on 17th Street NW when he struck a Honda CRV. Lloyd drove away, and onto the sidewalk.

Prosecutors said the car hit a tree box, a tree and several people who were standing or sitting at an outdoor section of the bar. The car then struck a light pole. Most of the 13 people were slightly injured. Three people were seriously injured.

MARYLAND
First -in-state
high school program

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) on Tuesday named two high schools in Baltimore that will be the first in the state to launch a six-year program that combines high school, college courses and work experience.

Starting this fall, Carver-Vocational Technical High School and Dunbar High School will be the sites of the new Pathways in Technology Early College High Schools, a program where students spend six years navigating both a high school and college curriculum that prepares them for fields in health and technology.

Maryland is partnering with IBM, Johns Hopkins and the University of Maryland-Baltimore for the program. By the end of the six years, students will have earned an associate’s degree and have work experience in sought-after fields.

VIRGINIA
Police arrest alleged bank robber

A bank robber dubbed the Forever Loyal Bandit, who authorities say carried out a string of heists in Northern Virginia, has been captured, police said.

Amin Huie, 42, of Arlington was arrested after a robbery at a Capital One Bank in Falls Church around 3 p.m. Friday, police said. Police broadcast a lookout for the suspect after he left the bank in the 1100 block of West Broad Street and Falls Church, and police found him a short time later.

Following an investigation, police think Huie carried out six bank robberies and one attempted robbery in Arlington and Fairfax County beginning in June 2014. Huie was called the Forever Loyal Bandit because he wore a T-shirt with the words “Forever Loyal” during two robberies. He is facing additional charges in the other cases.
