You Shouldn't Bring A Bat To A Fight If You Don't Want It Used Against You

Wicomico County Councilman Larry Dodd got into an argument at his home with another individual over dogs and the other guy beat the crap out of Larry, who ultimately ended up in the hospital for two days. While we published the formal information at 8:30 last night, we need o put a face to the story so you know what the press release was all about.

That is quite the story. And how does a guy on Mt Hermon Rd and his dog interact with a guy and his dog on Bell Ave.

Many years ago, living in the vicinity of Bell Ave, Larry's dog got out and went after my dog. I got the impression Larry really didn't care much about the issue, which led me to have the attitude that if it happened again, I would let my dog defend herself next time instead of me getting in the middle of it.

Larry needs to invest in a better fence.

Wishing you a speedy recovery.

SPD wouldn't have lifted a finger or had a press release if it was anyone else.

While I don't know the specific details here, I've been acquainted with Larry Dodd for a long time and it's not surprising at all to me that such a rude a-hole finally caught a beating.

Another local political wanna be!! Looks to me he ran his mouth and pulled a bat on one of the Baltimore transplant that called his bluff. Salisbury is quite the nice city to live these days, NOT!! Hey Larry don't run your mouth to just anyone not everybody's impressed with your pretty suits and name tags

I don't think that is true.
Put someone in the hospital you end up arrested.

1001 I was responding to your comment about cops. I said not me! Part of my training keeps me calm even if you curse and call me a liar. My zen is even and not disrupted. Thank you and have a wonderful day my friend.

Something is not adding up with this story but whatever, I'm sure he had it coming.

Dodd is one of the locals that thinks he's more than he really is! Don't pull a bat out on someone Larry unless you are actually prepared to use it

12:12- I was commenting on 9:34's post, not yours. 9:53's comments are more believable than 9:34's. 9:34 is saying upon meeting any politician or Cop, he tells them to their face that they are all weak and are gonna get their arse beat. You're saying if someone steps up to their front door with a problem, your capable of handling yourself. Nothing at all wrong with that. You have a good day too.

Maybe he should carry a badminton racket from now on. Maybe he can handle it better than a baseball bat.

I could easily dismantle a baseball bat or a knife. Very simple

He had it coming and lucky it didn't end up worse than it did. Cocky, mouthy arrogant prick! I guess he thought his status as a county council member would intimidate his foe. Guess old Larry found out the hard way some people just don't give a shit!

This is my observation on the subject. A similar incident happened in the Town of OC when another notorious firefighter was running for political office. My recollection of the incident was that the firefighter that was runnung for political office went into damage control and sought the political endorcement by Norman Conway in order to try and allay public fears. IT BACKFIRED AND COST BOTH NORM HIS JOB AND THE FIREFIGHTER LOST THE ELECTION TO.

Self defense!! Dodd had a weapon upon contact with this individual and the guy defended himself. Pretty sad when you get your ass whipped with your own damn weapon.

His neighbor is the one with the dog who bit his dog. She lost control of it again and Dodd called police. She called her boyfriend who decided to attack Dodd For reporting it.

I can't believe these posts. It is never alright to go violent unless it is in defense. Running your mouth is not an excuse. Be adults argue. No baseball bat should've been brought or used. Shame on both of you.

An old guy is attacked by a young hood with a bunch of priors and said old guy tries to defend himself with a baseball bat after retreating to into his house and you guys are giving this poor Larry guy crap?

IF that guy would have tried to come into my house I know what would have happened.

So sad to see adults acting like children and letting their selfishness and egos get in the way. We are all guilty of it. We could all learn from this.

@6:35 Dodd is the one who produced a weapon! He just didn't have the balls to use it and ran into one of Salisbury's finest that had NO problem beating his ass with it

I wish it were that simple, but take a moment to reflect on how neighborly arguments escalate, and the personalities involved.

2 sides to every story and they both obviously handled it wrong.
A single mother with 2 kids being evicted out of her house because of a complaining faux political wanna be? Yea thats not stressful

And neighbors being harassed because she would not take the time to properly restrain her dog.

Maybe he could have offered to assist her in finding a solution to her escape artist dog instead of complaining and having her evicted. Isn't his position, as a council person, to aide and find solutions to the public's issues?

People need to spend less time being assholes and more time, taking personal responsibility, helping each other and finding solutions to their problems without creating harm.

This is the only thing I think too. The assailant and the "victim" are both 2 losers with a combined IQ somewhere in the imbecile range obviously. Of course the guy had no right to go on someone else's property but if Dodd had a brain he wouldn't have been standing out of the porch with a baseball bat. He would have stayed inside with doors locked and called 911. But Noooooooo the moron Dodd attempted to show his arse and got it beat for his own stupidity. Now back to the dogs. It's a shame losers like the now defendant's girlfriend and Dodd even own dogs. Both are irresponsible losers.

This isn't the first time Dodd has pulled this crap!! He just ran into the wrong one and got his ass busted plain and simple! Hey Larry "it's going going gone", home run Ian!! Dumbass your county council position doesn't impress anyone

Anonymous said...

wow some of you people are something else. Love Larry or Hate Larry. Nobody deserves what he got. I hope the clown that beat him stays behind bars for a long time. He is out of control and has a rap sheet a mile long. This shows his true person. He has a violent history. I hope he just doesnt get a slap on the wrist this time. As much mouth that some of you have had in these comments, it could just as easily be you. would it be ok then for that person to beat you with a bat?

No, no. I would go in my house, lock the door and call the cops.
May take em a couple of hours to show up but I am not inclined to try and play big man to some crazy boyfriend.

Your "stuff" sure isn't worth your life, or ending up in the hospital over. Let him beat on the door all he wants.

Who checks their self in on FaceBook as ICU? Thought it was Intensive Care, maybe mentally. He will be weeks of crying and wanting attention. The confirmed blog addict (that is right Larry, people tell about you anonymously being the number one obsessed blogger that talks about every one but yourself). We will enjoy your absence. Now, get off the blogs idiot.

A similar incident happened in Worcester County where Firefighter Kranz was running for Worcester County Commissioner. In an effort to try and calm the public fears about the incident he tried to ride on the political coattail of Norman Conway. One of the above posters was right - it backfired big time. And both Kranz and Conway lost the elections. A few have said that Kranz's charade pulled the whole democratic party into the gutter.

The boyfriend just decided to attack with no provocation? Knowing Dodd and his big mouth, you really think he didn’t provoke the altercation? Really?
