Bus Driver Transporting School Children Arrested For DUI In Talbot Co.

Bus Driver Transporting School Children Arrested For DUI In Talbot Co.

(TRAPPE, MD) — A commercial bus driver transporting school children back from a field trip was arrested by Maryland State Police tonight in Talbot County and charged with driving under the influence.

The driver is identified as Joseph R. Johnson, 45, of Dover, Delaware.  He is charged with driving under the influence of alcohol.  Additional charges may be placed as the investigation continues.

At about 5:30 p.m. today, the Maryland State Police Easton Barrack received a 911 call from a citizen who was following a commercial bus eastbound on Rt. 50 and said the bus was weaving all over the road.  As troopers were en route to intercept the bus, another call was received from a parent chaperone  on the bus.  The parent said due to the bus driver’s erratic driving, the adults on the bus had insisted he pull to the shoulder and wait for the troopers to arrive.  The charter bus, owned by Dawson Tour Bus Services, Inc., of Camden, Delaware, stopped on eastbound Rt. 50 west of Porpoise Creek Road, in Trappe.

Upon arrival, the trooper conducted an investigation and based on observations and evidence, took Johnson into custody.  He was taken to the Easton Barrack for additional testing and was ultimately charged with DUI.  The Maryland State Police does not release results of blood alcohol testing prior to trial.

The driver had been transporting 30 children and ten adults back to Bennett Middle School in Wicomico County.  The students were returning from a field trip to Calvert Cliffs.

A sober driver from the commercial bus company was summoned to the scene.  While the children were waiting, a trooper assigned to the Aviation Command treated them all to pizza he purchased and delivered to the scene along the shoulder of Rt. 50.

All of the children and adults have been returned to the school safely.


Did Voters In Delmar Write In A Non Delmar Resident?

Wayne Knapp was a write in winner in the Delmar elections , but questions have arisen as to whether he is even a resident of Delmar. Wayne is currently a member of the Pittsville commission as well. This should be interesting when they check the requirements 

Syrian Refugees My Thoughts

It has been a very contentious issue that has sparked widespread debate across the nation. Many feel we are a nation of immigrants and that we should allow everyone who wants to come to America to be welcomed with open arms. I have to disagree with that and let me explain why.

America was founded the key word in the sentence by immigrants. Founded means a start, a beginning. America is not a new Country anymore with a vast area of land we are looking to fill up with people. America is a nation full of poverty and homelessness. We have to take care of our own citizens who are in need before we continue to overburden the very system that can't handle the problem now. We offer illegal aliens more benefits than people who were actually born in this Country and that must stop.

We must focus all our efforts on our homeless which include veterans who served this Country, and the poverty stricken who struggle to survive in the modern economic crisis. People want to say that the Syrian refugees go through many checks before they can relocate, but honestly desperate people will say and do anything they can to better their situation. One of the Paris attackers was one of these refugees who relocated to Paris.

We simply cannot take the chance of bringing people to our Country that wish to harm it.

Letter To The Editor On Mistreatment Of A Veteran By NASA Contractor

I have a story you maybe interested in .  You always hear such great things coming from NASA and wallops however that is not always the case.  Recently one of the contractors for NASA was sued by a former worker  who was a disabled veteran who was constantly harassed at work  due to his disability.  The company hired a " independent law firm  to conduct an independent investigation"  into the accusations. Since  the company was paying for the investigation there is no surprise they marked it as unfounded.  A separate EEOC complaint was filed and investigated and during that investigation it was proven that the company conducted a one sided investigation and that they also in fact forged documents and lied under oath.  

The decision by the judge even cited the one sided  investigation when the court found the company guilty on all nine counts.  So when a man serves his country and is wounded in action , he gets repaid by allowing him to be harassed because of a disability.  They even put up billboards saying they support veterans when clearly they do not. They are trying to keep this very hush-hush for bad PR reasons.   The company was ordered to pay a significant sum to the gentleman for the violations.

Armed Suspect Injured Fleeing Police Foot Pursuit In Wicomico Co.

Armed Suspect Injured Fleeing Police Foot Pursuit In Wicomico Co.

(SALISBURY, MD) – While state and local police were working a criminal enforcement initiative this afternoon in a Wicomico County neighborhood where a shooting occurred last week, a suspect who was ultimately found to be armed sustained minor injuries after he fled from police attempting to talk with him and ran into the path of a responding police car.

The accused is identified as Kevin O. Garcia, 20, of Salisbury, Md.  After consultation with the Maryland Gun Center and the Wicomico County State’s Attorney’s Office, Garcia is being charged tonight with firearm possession with a felony conviction, illegal possession of a regulated firearm by a prohibited person, possession of a firearm by a minor, wearing/carrying a firearm, and illegal possession of ammunition by a prohibited person.  Garcia has been released to the custody of the Wicomico County Detention Center central booking unit for processing and his initial appearance before a court commissioner.

At about 1:30 p.m. today, members of the Maryland State Police Gang Unit and Firearms Enforcement Unit, along with investigators from the Wicomico County Narcotics Task Force, were working a criminal enforcement initiative on the west side of Salisbury.  This initiative was in response to a shooting that occurred in the area on November 12, 2015.

Police saw a man cutting though several back yards near Germania Circle and West Main Street.  As he neared the street, he saw investigators and immediately fled on foot while holding his waistband, causing investigators to believe he may be armed with a handgun.  A foot pursuit of the man, later identified as Garcia, ensued.

During the pursuit, Garcia ran into the street, directly into the path of a responding covert police vehicle driven by a member of the Wicomico County Narcotics Task Force.  The police vehicle was turning from West Main Street onto First Street when Garcia ran into the vehicle’s path.

Police found a loaded .22 caliber handgun in Garcia’s waistband.  He sustained minor injuries in the collision and was taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center where he was treated and released.  He remained in police custody during his treatment at the hospital and was transported to the county’s central booking center upon his release.  No shots were fired and no one else was injured in the incident.
