Maryland man dies at Rocks State Park after falling from Queen Seat formation, police say

A 22-year-old man fell to his death at Rocks State Park in Hartford County, Maryland, on Monday, police confirmed to Fox News.

Joseph Buxton, from Savage, Md., was at the park with his friends when he stepped out on to the rocks of the Queen Seat area, lost his footing and fell, Lauren Moses, the spokeswoman for Maryland Natural Resources Police, told Fox News.

The King and Queen Seat rises 190 feet above the park, according to the Department of Natural Resources website, which also has urged hikers to “use caution in this area.”

Crews took his body to the medical examiner’s office for an autopsy.

Buxton wasn’t the first person to die at the scenic outcrop described as a challenge even to experienced hikers. In June 2018, a 35-year-old man also fell from the same area and died, according to officials. In July 2015 another person committed suicide off the outcrop, investigators said.

A Maryland sailor gave his younger siblings a Valentine’s Day to remember.

LeBaron Bass had been stationed on the USS Abraham Lincoln for an 11-month deployment overseas – the longest he’s been away from his younger siblings.

Bass, who was deployed in the Middle East, first surprised his sister, 12-year-old Sasha, who was completely shocked to see her older brother in her classroom at Davis Middle School, Fox 5 DC reported.

“You just gonna sit there?” Bass can be heard in a video of the encounter asking his surprised sister, before giving her a big hug. “I got you. Did I get you?”

He then surprised his younger brother, 11-year-old Rahsaan.

“After 11 months, missing her birthday, missing almost every type of holiday there is, just to see her reaction – it was the best feeling I can image,” Bass told Fox 5 DC.

“I was just surprised (that he’s back),” she said.

Their mother, Mary Sanders, told Fox 5 DC she and Bass had been planning the surprise for more than two months. It went off without a hitch.

“It’s an amazing feeling,” she said.

Bass is set to deploy again next month.

At least one U.S. marshal was shot in northeast Baltimore Wednesday afternoon, Baltimore police confirmed to Fox News.

Two officers responded to a call shortly after noon in the Maryland city’s Frankford neighborhood, the Baltimore Sun reported. 

The Baltimore Police Media Relations office confirmed to Fox News that one U.S. marshal was shot. She could not confirm his or her condition or if there were multiple shots.

A police spokeswoman initially told the Baltimore Sun a second U.S. marshal was injured in the shooting, but then said the department was still confirming details.

In a separate shooting about 10 miles away, two people died and another suffered gunshot wounds around 11 a.m. in Baltimore’s Cherry Hill neighborhood.

Nazi flag seen hanging in classroom window at Maryland public high school

Westlake Legal Group gtjhs-ge Nazi flag seen hanging in classroom window at Maryland public high school fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/maryland fox-news/us/education/high-school fox news fnc/us fnc Danielle Wallace article 8e5ea580-d8ff-59d7-8f18-f518cd264400

A Maryland public high school launched an investigation Monday after photos of a Nazi flag hanging in a classroom window went viral over the weekend.

ARIZONA CEO FIRED AFTER VIRAL VIDEO SHOWS HIM ALLEGEDLY USING RACIAL SLUR AGAINST UBER DRIVER

Several people visiting Governor Thomas Johnson High School in Frederick, located in central Maryland about 50 miles from both Baltimore and Washington D.C., said they saw the flag in the classroom window while on campus for a school basketball game Friday night. Photos of the flag then began to circulate on social media.

Facebook user Nicole Hopkins originally posted the photo of the flag in the classroom window. Her post was then shared by another user, according to Frederick News Post, which then received nearly 400 shares and more than 700 comments as of Monday.

“I just want to know what class at Governor Thomas Johnson High School has this hanging in the window,” Hopkins initially wrote, sharing the photo of the Nazi flag in the window.

“Edit: Yes. I’m aware this is probably a history class. Yes I know the significance behind teaching it.. my issue is it being in a window for the whole world to see. There’s several other flags hanging in the class that could swap places with this IF it needed to be on display,” she later added in an update.

Frederick County Board of Education President Brad Young told WFMD that he was emailed an image of the flag around 8 p.m. Friday night and ordered the flag it taken down.

The Nazi flag seen in the photo was used in a World War II history class and left hanging in the window, visible to the outside, Frederick County Public Schools superintendent Theresa R. Alban said in a statement obtained by news outlets. She added that officials will “take appropriate action” on Monday to figure out what led up to the flag being hung there.

“The flag was removed as soon as our administrators were made aware. An apology was sent to the community,” Alban told WTTG-TV. “This does not reflect the values of our school system.”

Principal Daniel Lippy said in an email to the school community that the administration has taken steps “to ensure that this never occurs again,” according to The Associated Press.

The school was conducting an internal investigation into the incident. Young said it was too early to determine whether the teacher who hung the flag would receive any disciplinary action for what he described as “poor judgment” in leaving the flag on display. He added that teachers are encouraged to use “hands-on” methods to engage students in the classroom, including dressing in costumes, WFMD reported.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

2 Kansas City Chiefs were teammates at Catholic school in Maryland

A legendary Maryland high school football coach has more than a passing interest in Super Bowl LIV.

Two members of the Kansas City Chiefs — linebacker Dorian O’Daniel and cornerback Kendall Fuller — were teammates at Our Lady of Good Counsel High School in Olney, where they played for Bob Milloy, Maryland’s winningest head football coach.

“Down deep inside you hope you have a small part in it,” Milloy told Fox 5 DC Friday.

Milloy coached at Good Counsel for years before retiring, according to the station.

O’Daniel and Fuller both graduated from the Catholic high school in 2013.

Milloy told the station he was very proud of O’Daniel and Fuller and what they’ve accomplished.

“Just great kids and great players and to have two of them from the same year play on the same team in the Super Bowl,” he said. “I don’t think that happens very often.”

Milloy’s successor at Good Counsel,Andy Stefanelli, coached O’Daniel and Fuller when they were freshmen, according to the station.

“Dorian was one heck of a running back in high school,” Stefanelli told the station. “With Kendall you just kind of knew his sense for the game and just how he practiced and worked out. Everything he did was just first-rate.”

Senate Dem Van Hollen: ‘Impossible’ not to summon Bolton for testimony after bombshell report

Recently published allegations from former national security adviser Amb. John Bolton make it “impossible” for any senators who claim that they are “seeking the truth” in the Senate impeachment trial not to call him as a witness, Sen. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., said Tuesday.

Appearing on “America’s Newsroom” with hosts Sandra Smith and Ed Henry, Van Hollen said that all of the “momentum” in the case against the president is in favor of calling relevant fact witnesses “because the purpose of a trial is to get to the truth about what happened.”

“But, this is a major test of whether or not people want to have an impartial trial because everyone in America knows that when you have a trial, and it’s a fair trial, people get to call relevant fact witnesses and get relevant documents,” he said.

BOLTON FOR BIDEN? WITNESS SWAP TALK REVIVED IN WAKE OF BOMBSHELL BOOK MANUSCRIPT

This weekend, a report in The New York Times revealed an excerpt from the forthcoming book titled “The Room Where It Happened” – an apparent reference to a song from the Broadway musical “Hamilton” – that could prove pivotal in the impeachment trial against President Trump.

In it, Bolton wrote that the president told him in August that he wanted to continue to freeze almost $400 million in security assistance to Ukraine until officials there helped with investigations into Democrats, including the Biden family.

The Department of Justice said in a statement Monday night that the New York Times report “grossly” mischaracterized the exchange.

Van Hollen told the “Newsroom” hosts that calls from some Republican senators to have the Biden family testify — if John Bolton were to be brought into the Senate trial — were the reason he proposed an amendment stating that Chief Justice John Roberts should make a ruling for requests for documents and relevant witnesses.

“If the goal of a trial is to get to the truth — which is what trials are supposed to be all about — then when you have the president’s lawyers claiming that they’re that, you know, John Bolton is making this up…Well, the way you deal with that is you swear him in. You put him under penalty of perjury so that if he lies to the Congress, he’s subject to imprisonment,” said Van Hollen. “That’s why we have people testify under penalty of perjury.”

Directed at the president’s legal team, Van Hollen added that “you can’t sort of obstruct justice and an investigation to protect yourself against serious allegations of wrongdoing that rise to the level of impeachment.”

“So, that’s why the House is doing this,” he explained.

“This is not an appellate court. This is a trial,” he concluded.

Republican senators have faced a pivotal moment and pressure has been mounting for at least four to buck GOP leaders and form a bipartisan majority to force the issue. Republicans have held a 53-47 majority, and a mere majority vote would be required on the question of witnesses.

“John Bolton’s relevance to our decision has become increasingly clear,” Utah GOP Sen. Mitt Romney told reporters. Maine Sen. Susan Collins, a key moderate swing vote, said she has always wanted “the opportunity for witnesses” and the report about Bolton’s book “strengthens the case.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., appeared unmoved by news of the Bolton book, telling Republicans they would take stock after the defense team concluded its arguments.

Virginia man gets probation, small fine, for stealing WWII dog tags from National Archives

A Virginia National Guard sergeant — who previously faced 1 year in prison — was sentenced to 18 months of supervised probation Wednesday after being convicted of stealing World War II dog tags from the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) in Maryland.

Robert Rumsby, 30, admitted taking the dog tags that belonged to four U.S. airmen killed in plane crashes in 1944, according to a criminal complaint filed in federal court last May. Rumsby said his wife is the great-niece of one of the airmen killed, so he gave the dog tags to her grandmother as a gift, He said he gave another to a relative of one of the deceased airmen.

Rumsby added his mission was to give the tags to the families of the dead soldiers he met while researching a plane crash that killed his great uncle, according to Stars and Stripes.

“I think the intent was there. I think the approach was wrong. Even at the time, I knew the approach was wrong,” Rumsby told the outlet last May. “I had taken four identification tags from those record groups specifically for families I knew would treasure them.”

U.S. Magistrate Judge Thomas DiGirolamo said the sentence was given to promote respect for the law and protect “national treasures” stored at the Maryland-based National Archives.

Rumsby’s defense attorney Peter Fayne had argued his client wasn’t motivated by greed.

“His heart and intent were in the right place, but he accepts full responsibility for the grave mistake he made,” Fayne said.

Rumsby reportedly was holding his infant daughter in his arms during the hearing, adding that he sent a letter to National Archives officials in 2011, asking if dog tags could be released to the relatives of soldiers. He said he hadn’t heard back.

All of the dog tags have been returned to the archives, according to Christian Naylor, NARA’s chief operating officer.

DiGirolamo also ordered Rumsby to pay a $5,000 fine.

A Maryland man has been charged with attempted murder after engaging in a shootout with police officers who were responding to reports of animal cruelty and a domestic dispute in Harford County on Tuesday.

Deputies from the Hartford County Sherrif’s Office were called to a home around 7 p.m. where a resident had reportedly shot and killed a dog.

Police said the suspect, Benjamin Murdy, then began engaging in a shootout with officers, firing off nearly 200 rounds from a rifle and handgun, hitting a patrol vehicle several times and striking a neighbor who was outside twice in the lower body, according to reports by WBALTV.

The neighbor was rushed to York Hospital for treatment and was released shortly after, but a dog was killed in the shootout, police said.

Officers from the Baltimore County Police Department, Maryland State Police, Aberdeen Proving Ground Police, Natural Resources Police, Havre de Grace Police and Aberdeen Police all descended on the scene to apprehend the shooter.

After nearly an hour and a half of gunfire, while neighborhood residents sheltered in place and members of the Crisis Negotiation Team urged Murdy to stand down, he finally called 911 and told them he wanted to surrender.

Murdy, 43, was charged with attempted first- and second-degree murder, first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, aggravated animal cruelty and other related charges. The investigation is still ongoing.
