Assault Arrest

On 01/01/2009 at approximately 0050 hours, Cpl. M.E.Pue, III responded to 278 Longford Dr. for a welfare check. Upon arrival, Cpl. Pue discovered a City Cab with a subject passed out in the rear seat. The operator of the cab advised that he could not wake the subject and that the subject owed a fare to the driver.

Cpl. Pue was able to wake the subject, but while trying to explain the need to pay the cab fare, the subject refused to pay the fare or provide identification. When advised that he would be subject to arrest for theft of the cab driver’s services if he continued to refuse to pay, the subject shoved Cpl. Pue and was subsequently placed under arrest for assaulting him. The suspect resisted handcuffing, however with the assistance of the cab driver, Cpl. Pue was able to bring the subject under control and place him in handcuffs.

The subject was identified as Seal, Benny Orbin and transported to Frederick County Central Booking, where he had a hearing before the District Court Commissioner and was subsequently held on $6500.00 bond.
