Bryans Road man charged with assault, resisting arrest

A Bryans Road man has been charged with second-degree assault, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and trespassing after an event that occurred Sunday.

Per Charles sheriff’s office Deputy Brian Moore’s statement of charges, officers responded to King Street in Waldorf for the report of disorderly conduct. A subject reportedly approached a grocery store and was asked to leave, but came back a second time. Officers arrived and noticed Darrell Marvin Clinton, 31, aggressively yelling at people inside the store.

Clinton was allegedly yelling at an elderly female and then began making statements such as he didn’t want to die or get shot. Moore recognized through training that Clinton was possibly under the influence of phencyclidine, or PCP, due to Clinton’s actions and physical attributes.

Clinton was allegedly barred from the Smallwood Village Center where the crime took place and attempted to push away from officers trying to arrest him. Many clear and loud remarks were made by officers attempting to arrest Clinton, but he continued to refuse commands and resist. It took multiple officers to gain control of him.

Clinton was escorted to a local hospital, but as he was being placed on a stretcher he head butted an officer on the top of his head. Clinton was released on his own recognizance on Monday and his trial is scheduled for Nov. 10.
