MARYLAND STATE POLICE BEAT / Kerry not out of the woods after fleeing from fleet-footed flatfoot
LEXINGTON PARK, MD. – Maryland State Police report that another less than brilliant customer decided that it was better to fight than listen to the order of a trooper.
Police say that on May 15, 2017, at 11:03 p.m., TPR J. Mulhearn conducted a traffic stop on Rt 235 @ FDR Boulevard.
The driver of the vehicle, Kerry Joseph Woods Jr., 20, of 21548 Port Court, Lexington Park, Md., refused to comply with TPR Mulhearn’s requests and sped away from the location. A vehicle pursuit ensued and ended at Port Court, Lexington Park. Woods still refused to obey verbal commands and was subsequently removed from his vehicle and placed under arrest for multiple traffic offenses, eluding police, and resisting arrest. He was transported to St. Mary’s County Detention Center. On May 16, 2017, Woods posted bond and was released from jail. Maria Doerflinger and Matthew Connell are the free attorneys for Woods and are being paid for by the taxpayers.
A trial in St. Mary’s District Court has been set for July 13, 2017.
Woods was fined $530 in Calvert District Court on Jan. 12, 2017 for operating a 2002 Volkswagen at 80 mph in a 40-mph zone on H. G. Truman Road at Dowell Road when nabbed by Calvert Deputy T. Rzepkowski.
