Policeman hurtduring scuffle

A Hagerstown City Police officer was hurt Saturday afternoon when he and another man fell off a porch during a struggle at a neighborhood dispute in the 400 block of North Prospect Street.

Officer Korey Hinkle was treated at Washington County Hospital for an injury to his lower back and knee and released shortly after 4 p.m., said Lt. Margaret Kline.

Hinkle and Officer Brian Hook were called to 402 N. Prospect St. at 3:31 p.m. for a neighborhood dispute, Kline said. Hinkle encountered Dwight Julius Fulton, who allegedly pushed the officer in an effort to get to another man involved in the dispute.

"Hinkle tried to stop Fulton who allegedly pushed him again and both were knocked off a porch with Fulton landing on the officer," Kline said.


They fell about the distance of three steps.

Fulton, 50, of 417 N. Prospect St., was charged with three counts of assault, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and hindering a police officer. Two of the assault counts involved Hinkle and the other, Hook, Kline said

Also charged with disorderly conduct and hindering a police officer was Yolanda Fulton, 43, of 417 N. Prospect St., Kline said.

Both Fultons were being held at police headquarters awaiting an appearance before a bond commissioner, Kline said.

Candidate's barnburns in Berkeley

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - A beef cattle farmer who won a primary election for Jefferson County Commission earlier this week lost a barn in a fire Saturday morning.

G. Warren Mickey of 373 Roper North Fork Road lost about 3,000 bales of hay and some farm equipment in the blaze, Independent Fire Co. Assistant Chief Donald Longerbeam said.

His loss is estimated to be $50,000.

Firefighters aren't sure what sparked the 7:40 a.m. fire, but so far there is no sign of foul play, Longerbeam said.

The barn was engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived. They were able to prevent the fire from spreading to nearby buildings, he said.

Mickey secured the Democratic nomination for the Kabletown District seat on the commission. He faces Republican Rusty Morgan in the Nov. 5 election.
