RADLEY BALKO: Questions For Virginia’s Alcoholic Beverage Control Board. “Is it standard procedure for ABC agents to jump out on college students in the parking lots of stores that sell alcohol? (According to the local paper the Daily Progress, several other students were apprehended the same way.) Is it standard procedure for them to draw their weapons?” Drawing a weapon and pointing it without a reason for self-defense is an assault.
