Calvert County Dep. Daniel Deakins responded to the Crooked Eye Bar located at 8323 Bayside Road in Chesapeake Beach on Jan. 30 at 1:47 a.m. for the report of an assault. 

The victim advised that a patron of the bar, later identified as Daniel William Martin, 41 of Dunkirk, had allegedly been annoying other patrons and was asked to leave.  Once outside the bar Martin allegedly pulled a knife on the victim and put it to the victim’s throat, causing a superficial wound.  Approximately 30 customers of the bar had also come outside before Martin was subdued by the victim and an employee of the establishment. 

Deakins arrested Martin and charged him with first-degree assault.
