Police say he tried to punch an officer who was handcuffing him.
FREDERICK, Md. (AP) – Frederick city police say a Prince George’s County man has been released from the hospital after he became incoherent following a scuffle with officers.
Lt. Clark Pennington said Monday that 44-year-old Vincent Fong of District Heights is charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, theft and robbery after an incident Sunday night.
Pennington says officers were called around 9:30 p.m. to a beer-and-wine shop where a threatening customer had stolen a six-pack of hard cider. Pennington says Fong approached a police cruiser and tried to smash its window with a bottle.
Pennington says Fong then tried to punch one of the officers before they took him to the ground and handcuffed him.
Police Fong was acting incoherent as if he was on alcohol or drugs. He was taken to Frederick Memorial Hospital for treatment, and then taken to the Adult Detention Center.
He went before the District Court Commissioner who ordered Fong to be held without bail.
