Area man faces assault charges

WILLIAMSPORT - A man whom witnesses said was ramming his truck into the rear of a car driven by the mother of his child Saturday remained jailed on $10,000 bond, Washington County Sheriff's deputies said Sunday night.

Travis Glenn Jordan, 19, of 15715 Fenton Ave. in Williamsport, was charged with two counts each of first- and second-degree assault, malicious destruction of property and reckless driving.

When Deputy 1st Class Mark Price approached Jordan, he allegedly resisted and was sprayed with Mace. Price then charged Jordan with resisting arrest, taking him into custody at South Conococheague and East Frederick streets at 7:15 p.m. Saturday.

In a press release, Price said he was one of the witnesses who saw Jordan drive his truck into the back of a car driven by Deadra Michelle Nazelrod, 18, of the 10900 block of Oak Ridge Drive in Hagerstown.


Price said Nazelrod told him later her vehicle was rammed by Jordan five or six times because she wouldn't talk to him.

No one was injured, including a 17-year-old girl in the car with Nazelrod when the incidents occurred, Price said.

W.Va. man faces DUI, drug charges

WILLIAMSPORT - A Berkeley County man faces several charges after he was pulled over Friday night on Md. 63 by a member of the Washington County Sheriff's Department.

Lonnie Clifton Bucy, 42, of 29 Mobile Court in Falling Waters, W.Va., was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, negligent driving, speeding, possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, and possession of fireworks, Sgt. Travers Ruppert said.

Bucy was driving a 1994 Mazda pickup truck south on Md. 63 at 10:20 p.m. Ruppert alleged that the vehicle crossed the center line and drove onto the shoulder of the road several times.

Bucy was charged with the alcohol offense after he was given a field sobriety test, Ruppert said.

A search of the vehicle turned up a smoking pipe containing suspected marijuana residue, as well as a plastic baggie with suspected marijuana, Ruppert alleged. Several packs of fireworks also were found, Ruppert said.

Because of the presence of drugs, Bucy's vehicle was impounded for possible forfeiture, Ruppert said.

Bucy was taken before a bond commissioner and released on personal recognizance, Ruppert said.
