A Lexington Park woman has been charged twice in a two-day period with endangering other people while intoxicated and disorderly conduct at Great Mills Road intersections, in court papers alleging that she also screamed at people in a hospital.

Ashley Marie Moore, 28, was freed on personal recognizance the morning after the initial incident caused an accident Friday on the highway, court papers state, and after her arrest during a subsequent incident on Saturday evening, she was released Sunday on $3,500 bond.

Police went to the highway’s intersection with Tri-Community Way shortly after 3:30 p.m. Friday on a report of a motor vehicle accident involving a pedestrian, court papers state, and Lashaunda Marie Butler told the law officers that Moore had walked in front of her vehicle as it entered the highway. Moore declined medical care, court papers state, but she told police she had been consuming alcohol and percocet, and did not recall being involved in an accident.

Moore was taken to MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital in Leonardtown because of her condition, where charging papers allege that she “became disorderly and uncooperative, ... screaming and cursing and repeatedly disrupting hospital operations with other patients due to her behavior.”

Moore was taken to the St. Mary’s jail on the initial charging papers filed by sheriff’s deputy Scott Ruest.

Shortly after 6:40 p.m. on Saturday, police found Moore again at the highway near her home on Winding Way, and she was “staggering and screaming” while holding an empty pint-size vodka bottle, according to a statement of probable cause filed by Trooper Wayne Couter of the Maryland State Police.
