Calvert Wrong-way race on Rt. 4 ended life of fleeing dare-devil; crash ends his racing career

The preliminary investigation indicates the Mitsubishi initially pulled to the shoulder, but when the trooper’s car pulled behind, the driver accelerated and fled north on Rt. 4. The trooper notified the barrack and pursued as the Mitsubishi turned onto a side road, then onto Main Street in Prince Frederick. When the driver of the Mitsubishi came to the intersection of Main Street and Rt. 4, he turned left and proceeded southbound in the northbound lanes of the highway, swerving back and forth across traffic.
The barrack duty officer was monitoring the pursuit. When the driver of the Mitsubishi began driving south in the northbound lanes, the duty officer ordered the pursuit ended out of a concern for public safety. Moments later, the Mitsubishi struck the northbound Ford Escape driven by Fisher on Rt. 4 south of Sixes Road.

Reihl Brothers Might Have Better Luck with Robbing Banks Instead of Poaching Oysters

EASTON, MD. — The Maryland Natural Resources Police report that last Friday they charged two watermen with violating the State’s oyster laws in Talbot County.

Benjamin Leonard Reihl, 26, of Chestertown was charged with eight counts of possession of undersized oysters, marking the fifth time he had been caught oyster poaching this season. Adam Vincent Reihl, 21, of Church Hill, was charged with six counts of possession of undersized oysters.

“Our Natural Resources Police are a critical part of our efforts to protect the Chesapeake,” said Governor Martin O’Malley. “Poaching oysters hampers our work to protect the health of the Bay and hurts Maryland citizens and hard-working watermen who live, work and play in our waters.”

Officers stopped a truck on U.S. 50 west of the Choptank River just before 6 p.m. After inspecting and sorting through the vehicle’s cargo, officers determined that 14 bushels of oysters were undersized. The two men were arrested on warrants for unrelated violations.
