January 29, 1999

MARLOWE, W.Va. - A Berkeley County Sheriff's Deputy hurt his shoulder in a fight with a suspect early Friday morning, according to Chief Deputy John Vanorsdale.

The incident started when the Washington County Sheriff's Department in Hagerstown told police they were looking for a car that was possibly involved in an accident in Williamsport.

A short time later, Berkeley County Deputy Robert Bussard saw a man walking along U.S. 11 near Marlowe Elementary, said Vanorsdale.

The subject told Bussard he had been in an argument with another man.

After Washington County Sheiriff's Deputies said they didn't need the man immediately, Bussard took the man to his house on Crawford Quarry Road.

The suspect began using foul language and became involved in a fight with Bussard, Vanorsdale said.

Bussard was able to handcuff the man, but hurt his shoulder, Vanorsdale said.

Craig Gilmer, 28, of Falling Waters, was arrested and charged with public intoxication, resisting arrest and obstructing, Vanorsdale said.
