A man who pulled a gun during a Christmas Eve argument in the Barracuda Surf Bar parking lot was found guilty of second-degree assault and carrying a handgun Thursday in Washington County Circuit Court.
Shane W. Spiegle, 28, of Laurel, Md., will remain free on $10,000 bond pending sentencing. A first-degree assault charge was dropped in exchange for the plea.
Deputy Washington County State's Attorney Charles Strong said the Dec. 24 incident occurred at 1:32 a.m. when security guards saw two men fighting on the ground in the parking lot.
The security guards approached the two men and saw a gun on the ground nearby. The guards gave the gun to Hagerstown City Police.
