Baltimore County Police Officers are wearing mourning bands on their badges today in memory of a fallen hero.
On December 31, 2001, Sergeant Mark Parry was on patrol when a drunk driver struck the unmarked police car he was riding in. The drunk driver fled the scene but was later taken into custody.
Sergeant Parry was rushed to the hospital where he died from his injuries on January 21, 2002. He was married and the father of three children.
