ARLINGTON, Va. (WUSA9) -- A lobbyist is accused of holding a computer technician hostage inside his home until they fixed his computer, Arlington County police said.
Joseph Mondello also allegedly had a gun in his possession and threatened to kill the technician at his home Monday morning in the 2700 block of S. Grove Street, according to police.
Mondello, a registered lobbyist, was charged with abduction by force or intimidation and use of a firearm in a felony.
