Another man that was arrested for a large-scale confrontation with police last July had his day in court this week and pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and failure to obey police.
Germaine Levenbury, 19, of Upper Marlboro, Maryland was also charged with interfering with an arrest, but Deputy State’s Attorney Paul Haskell declined to pursue that charge because of a lack of evidence.
Levenbury was one of 11 people who were arrested on the Boardwalk on July 23 and July 24. According to police, a crowd became out of control and assaulted officers after a man was arrested for throwing a trash can around 10 p.m. on July 23.
The situation became worse after midnight. Haskell told the court that hundreds of disorderly people gathered on the boards near Seventh Street.
