At 5:09 p.m. Sept. 4, Trooper B. McCartney responded to Route 235 at Airport View Road in Hollywood for a reported Motor Vehicle Accident.
Upon arrival contact was made with the driver, Michael Lavar Yeldell, 30, of Great Mills and a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage was emitting from the vehicle and his breath.
Yeldell was subsequently arrested for DUI. While Yeldell was being escorted to Tpr. McCartney’s vehicle he began to resist and assaulted Tpr. McCartney and also Tpr. C. Evans, who was assisting with traffic at the scene of the accident.
He was charged with DUI and Assault on Police Officer.
Yeldell was transported to the St. Mary’s County Detention Center and held pending a bond review.
Yeldell was arrested on July 31 for felony assault, after police say he drove his car into his wife’s car.
