Instead of serving 30 days in Worcester County Jail, a man who appealed his conviction for his involvement in a Boardwalk scuffle last July will be held in jail for three days.
Steven Gowen Williams, 20, of Baltimore appeared in Worcester County Circuit Court last week to appeal his sentence for interfering with obstruction of a police officer. Last summer, Williams was one of 11 people charged in two separate incidents when young adults were disturbing the peace, interfering with arrests and attempting to assault police officers.
Williams was one of 200 people in a crowd that formed when police attempted to arrest Savanah Nelson for screaming and inciting the crowd after midnight on July 24. Police said Williams tried to prevent the police from arresting Nelson by grabbing her, pushing her down on a Boardwalk bench and lying on top of her.
According to reports, police employed a stun gun on Williams when they could not physically remove him. When he tried to run down the Boardwalk, he was arrested.
