Around 11:15 p.m. last Wednesday, an Ocean City Police Department (OCPD) officer was on bicycle patrol in the downtown Boardwalk area when he was dispatched to the Ocean City Fishing Pier for a report of a male suspect, later identified as Shawn Drummond, 41, of Pittsburgh, Pa., pulling a knife and threatening to assault another man, later identified as Kevin Hudler, 30, of Pasadena.
Ocean City Communications provided a description of Drummond including what he was wearing and that he was carrying fishing tackle. OCPD officers located Drummond walking away from the fishing pier on the north side of the Jolly Roger amusement park. According to police reports, Drummond told police he did pull a knife on Hudler in self-defense because Hudler had pulled a gun on him. Drummond then recanted and told police he did not think he even touched his knife.
