In the early morning hours of April 13, a 19-year-old college student was hit and killed by a car as he was crossing a street. The car then fled the scene, but police found the alleged driver sometime later. The Maryland woman now faces charges in what police are considering the DUI-related death of the man.
Maryland parents might agree that one of the only things worse than losing a child is being accused of killing that child. One father is living this nightmare after an accident that occurred in Nov. 2013. Authorities charged the man with involuntary manslaughter in connection with his son's death.
Back on Feb. 6, 2014, we reported that a commissioner in a Maryland County was pulled over and arrested for drinking and driving ("Were field sobriety tests correctly administered in DUI arrest?"). A sheriff's deputy saw a vehicle moving erratically and initiated a traffic stop that led to his arrest. Recently, the commissioner pleaded guilty to DWI in exchange for probation.
At approximately 12:30 p.m. on March 22, someone driving on Maryland Route 301 contacted law enforcement officials to report what appeared to be unsafe driving by another motorist. Police subsequently located a vehicle matching the caller's description and initiated a traffic stop. As a result of the stop, a 51-year-old man was arrested on a drunk driving charge.
