CHARLES TOWN, W.VA. - A Maryland man wanted on a drunken driving charge related to a fatal two-car crash Sept. 20 on U.S. 340 in Jefferson County was picked up Wednesday night in Carroll County, Md., police said.
Richard Lewis Morris Sr., 45, of 338 Fair Ave. in Westminster, was found at a residence in Carroll County about 8 p.m., according to Cpl. Vincent Tiong of the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department.
Morris was picked up on a fugitive warrant for DUI causing death and was being held on $10,000 bond Thursday afternoon at the Carroll County Detention Center, Tiong and Sgt. Jim Fisher of the Carroll County Sheriff's Department said.
