December 20, 2005

A Hagerstown man who allegedly gave false information to police officers Friday was charged with several offenses.

Jovan David Williams, 21, of 673 Oak Hill Ave., was charged with concealing a deadly weapon, resisting arrest, failing to obey a lawful order and giving false statements to officers, according to Washington County District Court documents.

Maryland State Police saw expired tags on a vehicle on West Washington Street in which Williams was a passenger, documents state. Williams and the driver allegedly could not provide identification.

A K-9 scan of the vehicle allegedly gave a positive alert for a controlled substance, documents state. Williams also had a black, metal butterfly knife and about $2,500, which he said was his "birthday money," documents state.

Police said Williams attempted to "get away" and had to be "subdued," according to documents. He then resisted handcuffing and was taken to the ground. Police said Williams only put his hands behind his back when police told him they would use pepper spray, documents state.

Williams was being held on $10,000 bail Monday night at the Washington County Detention Center, according to a spokesman there.
