FROM THE PAST
Perry Hoxter, about 35, of Price, on June 30 about 7:20 p.m. The warrant charged him with malicious destruction of property.
Robinson said that he went to the home of Carrie Ridgeway at Price and found Hoxter. He said that he read the warrant and placed the man under arrest. Hoxter replied that he had no intention of going to jail and turned and ran out of the door with Robinson in hot pursuit.
The police officer said he caught the man in a field and a scuffle ensued with Robinson receiving a broken finger before he could handcuff the man.
Hoxter was brought to the Queen Anne’s County jail and instead of one charge, now has two additional charges of assault on a police officer and resisting arrest to face.
