Ocean City Police pulled over two drivers this past week, and instead of accepting the consequences, these two fools decided to fight back.
During the summer weekends, the population of Ocean City balloons from tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of people, and almost all of them come by car. Combine lackluster infrastructure with alcohol-fueled partying, and the result is an extraordinary number of reckless driving cases.
If you’re going to come visit our beautiful shore town, please drive courteously. If you’re going to drink, use a designated driver or ride-sharing service, like Uber.
For goodness sake, don’t drive drunk, don’t drive your car into buildings, and DON’T hit other people and then try to run away!
Arrested Twice in As Many Days
Police arrested Carmen Gilmore, a 19-year-old woman from Nottingham, Maryland, after a routine seatbelt stop went horribly wrong. An Ocean City Police Officer noticed a passenger in a car not wearing a seat belt and decided to pull her over.
These stops are routine in the summertime, and the officer told Gilmore and her passenger that they were going to be issued a warning. When the officer asked for Gilmore’s driver’s license, she launched into an expletive-ridden tirade.
