VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) - A Citizens Committee met Wednesday to discuss the possibility of an 18,500-seat arena in Virginia Beach.
The arena could bring a major league sports team to southeast Virginia. The committee, made up of 38 people, met to discuss the positives and negatives of bringing the arena to the resort city.
The committee is made up of local leaders of business and civic organizations. Members of the committee will not take a position on the project but will rather act as a public information source to the city council.
A van crashed into a house in Virginia Beach Wednesday, and fire officials said an elderly driver was behind the wheel.
A 12-year-old student was arrested and charged with making a threat against a Hampton middle school.
The suspect entered Oriental Decor in the Lynnhaven Crossing Shopping Center around 1:50 p.m. on Dec. 6 and stole a sword valued at $300.
