Ocean City Police Tasered and arrested a man for resisting arrest after his wife was reportedly struck by a Boardwalk tram last night.
Transit Manager Mark Rickards said the tram was turning the corner where the ramp leading to the inlet fishing pier connects with the concrete bump-out around 7 p.m., according to incident reports. Conductors said they saw Christopher and Lydia Campbell, of Blossburg, Pennsylvania, nearby, facing away from the tram.
"The conductor yelled out, 'watch the tram please.' ...the woman took a step back, hit the tram, and fell down," Rickards said, reading from the incident report.
At that time, Ocean City police officers and Maryland State Police troopers went to the accident, when onlookers told them that 29-year-old Christopher Campbell was being belligerent.
