With assistance from numerous tips from citizens regarding the incident, officers were able to identify the driver of the vehicle as Harry M. Huntsman, 25, of 801 Mallett Hill Lane, Millersville, MD. Huntsman was subsequently stopped in Ocean City on May 30 for an additional traffic violation and was issued the citations for the May 16 incident at that time.

To raise money for his legal defense, Huntsman, who uses his middle name on Facebook, has set up a GoFundMe page with the following appeal, which he admits is designed to get around the Go Fund Me rules against raising money for legal issues. At this writing, the page is still live and collected $400 of his goal of $1300.
