The Fairfax County Police Department reported that jewelry and electronics were stolen from a home on the 11900 block of Winstead Lane on Friday at around 8:30 a.m.

SoberRide (Image via Washington Regional Alcohol Program)A local nonprofit organization once again is trying to make it safer, and cheaper, to get home during the holidays after drinking a little too much eggnog in the D.C. area.

The Washington Regional Alcohol Program is covering taxi fares up to $30 as part of its annual holiday SoberRide campaign. The free cabs will run from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. every day until Jan. 1.

“Last December, nearly 1,500 (1,456) Greater Washington residents did the right thing and availed themselves of this lifesaving service rather than possibly driving home impaired,” WRAP president Kurt Gregory Erickson said in a statement. “For SoberRide’s hours of operation during just last New Year’s Eve, alone, such ridership (580) translated into the removal of a would-be drunk driver from our shared roadways every 49-seconds.”

To get a complimentary ride, call 800-200-8294.

The driver was later located and identified as Marc A. Dixon, 31, of Reston.

Dixon was arrested and charged with misdemeanor hit and run and Felony DUI. Dixon has been charged with multiple DUI in the last five years, according to LCSO. He is being held at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center without bond.

In 2014, Dixon was arrested for driving his car backwards down Rugby Road in Fairfax. During that arrest, Dixon provided false information as well as kicked the door and window of the police vehicle he was in, Fairfax County Police said.

In that incident, Dixon was charged with DUI (fourth offense), refusing breath test, fraudulent information to police, destruction of county property, driving while suspended (DUI related) and improper backing on the highway.
