Kevin Brown mugshot

Kevin Brown

A man from Frederick, Maryland, was arrested Oct. 26 in Purcellville for allegedly driving under the influence and cited for possession of marijuana, according to the Purcellville Police Department.

The suspect, scheduled to perform as a stilt walker at the town's Halloween block party, drove up around 6:16 p.m. to an officer working a security post near the intersection of 21st and West Main streets.

After the man asked where he could park, the officer reportedly picked up on odors of both alcohol and marijuana coming from the vehicle. Marijuana was discovered inside the vehicle.

Kevin Brown, 53, was charged with DUI and cited for possession of marijuana. He was later released from the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center on a personal recognizance bond.

I can't believe that you guys don't have the understanding that even if simple possession may not be a crime at some point, public intoxication still will be. There is a big difference between what you do in the privacy of your own home and in public.


This is terrible....doesn't Herring want to legalize....throw out the charge and let him stilt in peace....


after the recent election this won't be a crime next year .....


So I'm guessing this case will be prosecuted by Buta Biberaj who has stated she wants to drop prosecutions for simple possession of marijuana?

You'd have to be high to perform at a halloween event.


High on stilts or pot?
