OCPD Taser, arrest man after tram hit wife

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.

Why not wait and report after the police explain the situation.

Ocean City, vacationers from PA, in their 20's and alcohol never EVER mix well at all!

But thanks for your stay in our Family Friendly Resort Town!

Sounds like the husband AND wife were both stupid and deaf.

They were happy and enjoying themselves at a resort.
Probably had a few drinks at the Purple Moose and were distracted by all of the scenery on the boardwalk.
Give them a break for crying out loud.

3:39, if they can't handle a couple of drinks without acting stupid they should leave the drinking to mature adults.

Apparently people from PA suck at walking as much as they suck at driving!
