Three Arrested After Battling OC Cops, Paramedics

OCEAN CITY — Three New York residents were arrested on various charges including assault, disorderly conduct and obstructing and hindering after battling verbally and physically with police and paramedics after their friend was involved in a pedestrian collision.

Around 10:10 p.m. last Saturday, Ocean City Police Department (OCPD) officers responded to a motor vehicle collision involving a pedestrian in the area of Coastal Highway and 67th Street. According to police reports, the pedestrian sustained minor injuries and was assessed by Ocean City EMS in an ambulance on the scene.

When an OCPD officer arrived, they encountered a group of people who were friends of the injured pedestrian and witnesses to the collision. According to police reports, the group was argumentative with the police on scene and other first-responders. One member of the group, identified as Danielle Gurtowitz, 25, of Huntington, N.Y., was screaming expletives at officers and the paramedics.

Gurtowitz reportedly demanded to be allowed into the ambulance, but paramedics told her she could not because of her argumentative and apparently intoxicated state. Another member of the group, identified as Liam Brennan, 21, also of Huntington, N.Y., demanded the OCPD officer’s identification information because he wanted to file a complaint. The officer provided the information verbally and told Brennan he would write it down for him after the accident scene was cleared.

Friend(s) riding in the ambulance with a victim isn't a law in NY. The practice is left up to the discretion of the ambulance crew and is not, repeat, NOT mandatory.

This behavior is ridiculous. Throw the book at them. So sick of this kind of thing. Ocean City needs to get tough and clean up the city. Such bad incidents all the time. So much for being a "family" resort.

And you wonder why some people get their ads beat by police. Sometimes it the only thing you can do.

"...all the time..."?
Here comes the "you call this a "family resort" argument once again.
Last Saturday there were over 300,000 people in Ocean City, THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND!
That is the current population of Pittsburgh PA. And OC puts all those people on a 12-mile strip of land.
Don't be ridiculous thinking that SOMETHING unlawful isn't going to happen just about every night, with 300,000+ people in town.
Google domestic abuse, assault, and Disney World. You'll find many incidents that end up in arrests at "The Happiest Place In The World".
So much for being a "family" resort, right?

Every resort town has its problems, and OC is no different. 300,000 tourists with money is a potential feast for thieves, drug dealers and scammers. Throw in a bunch of tourists who too often leave their brains at the bridges and it's a recipe for a mess.

Yeah... You're right. Nobody vacations at that hell-hole of Ocean City anymore. It's just too crowded. [Y. Berra]

All involved from the pricey North Shore of Long Island; must've worn out their welcome in the Hamptons!

Good job, OCPD.
