Baltimore County Police have become aware of and are investigating a 2:24 video depicting an altercation between an officer and a male civilian in Towson.

Police have determined that the incident occurred at about 1:45 a.m. Sunday, February 23, when on-duty officers witnessed a disturbance among several members of a large crowd in the 400 block of York Road. Officers at the scene included Baltimore County Police, Baltimore County Auxiliary Police and Maryland State Police; it is unclear whether other agencies also were involved.

At least two people -- a male and a female -- were arrested and charged with resisting arrest, disturbing the peace, second-degree assault and  drug charges.

The video shows an officer confronting a male who is filming the arrests. The person filming the incident was not arrested and has not come forward to file a complaint. BCoPD has begun an investigation of this incident and would like to talk to the person who was filming so that a complete picture of what happened can be constructed. Recognizing that a video often represents only a small part of an incident, investigators want to know more about what happened before and after the events depicted on the video.

BCoPD recognizes and respects the right of citizens to film officers on duty, in a public place, unless the person filming has violated some law or statute.

At 10:03 p.m. Thursday night, Baltimore County Police and Fire personnel responded to York and Thornton Mill roads in Precinct 7/Cockeysville for a report of a serious automobile accident. Upon arriving at the scene, officers discovered that there were three vehicles involved and there were multiple patients with serious injuries.

The initial investigation by the Baltimore County Police Crash Team has indicated that a Hyundai Sonata was traveling northbound on York Road north of McCormick Road in front of a Dodge Dart. There was a Hyundai Tucson traveling southbound on York Road north of McCormick Road. The Hyundai Sonata crossed the center line, struck the Hyundai Tucson, and went back into the northbound side of York Road where it was struck by the Dodge Dart.

Eric James Stewart, 22, of the 600 block of Quaker Bottom Road, 21152, has been identified as the driver of the Hyundai Sonata. He has been cited for DUI and determined to be the at-fault driver in the crash.

Brandon Thomas Walsh, 23, of the 14600 block of Thornton Mill Road, 21152, has been identified as the driver of the Dodge Dart. He has been cited for DUI.

The operator of the Hyundai Tucson, Charles Edward Wagner, 85, and the right rear passenger of the Hyundai Tucson, Jeannine Shirley Wagner, 84, both of the 900 block of Beaverbank Circle, 21286, were declared deceased at the scene.

One in Critical Condition

The right front passenger, identified as Mary Antionette Warner, 79, of the 12300 block of Rosslare Ridge Road, 21093, was transported to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center by Maryland State Police Medivac Helicopter where she remains in critical condition.

Eric Stewart, the operator of the Hyundai Sonata, was transported to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center by Baltimore County Medics for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

Brandon Walsh, the operator of the Dodge Dart, was not injured as a result of the accident.

Crash Factors

Crash Team investigators believe that speed and alcohol appear to have been factors in the crash and are continuing the investigation. The review of the incident by the Baltimore County State's Attorney's Office will determine if any more charges will be placed.
