Scott McCabe, the Washington Examiner‘s longtime crime reporter, was robbed last night while lost in his own little online world. After his iPhone was taken on the Red Line last night, he chased the suspect down while unleashing a symphony of profanity.
McCabe wrote on Twitter: “Punk swiped my iPhone on the train. Chased him through station, over fare, through lot until police got him. Good work MPD, WMATA.”
Unfortunately, the iPhone got lost in the shuffle.
