On Dec. 24, deputies responded to the Quick Stop Gas Station on Great Mills Road in Great Mills for a fight in progress call. 

When deputies arrived they observed two males fighting inside of a vehicle.  Dfc. George observed Pierre Lamont Harris, 24 of Great Mills, striking the victim in the face with a closed fist while holding an object in that hand.  Dfc. George opened the vehicle door and extricated Harris from the vehicle, stopping the assault.  As Harris was being placed on the ground to be handcuffed, a fixed blade steak knife fell from his hand.  Harris was handcuffed and transported to the St. Mary’s County Detention Center where he was charged with First-Degree Assault, Second-Degree Assault and Disorderly Conduct. Steveland M Stewart, 24 of Lexington Park, was arrested for Second-Degree Assault and
Possession of Marijuana by MSP Trooper E. Evans.

During the same incident, as Deputy Chimko-Fahey arrived on the scene, she observed an individual, later identified as Lamont Drewell Carey, 20 of Lexington Park, holding a baseball bat and striking another individual.  When Carey saw Dep. Chimko-Fahey he dropped the bat and attempted to flee.  After a brief foot chase, Carey was apprehended.  Dep. Chimko-Fahey went back to contact the individual who Carey was assaulting.  The victim had left the Quick Stop and Dep. Chimko-Fahey was unable to identify him.  Dep. Chimko-Fahey charged Carey with Disorderly Conduct.

All three suspects were released the same day.
