Severna Park Barricade Situation Calls Out SWAT Teams

| July 6, 2012

UPDATE: From the Anne Arundel County Police Department:

On July 6, 2012, at approximately 10:42 a.m., officers from Eastern District responded to the 60 block unit of Robinson Landing in Severna Park, Maryland, for an indecent exposure call.  Witnesses reported seeing an adult male, without any clothing on, acting in an irrational manner and igniting an unknown substance in the street near this location.  When officers arrived, the subject fled on foot and barricaded himself in his home.

The Police Department’s Conflict Negotiation Team and Special Operations Section were dispatched.  Citizens in the surrounding area were asked to stay in their homes.  Negotiators established communication with the subject by telephone.  After a short period of negotiation, the suspect agreed to exit the front door of his home and was subsequently taken into custody and transported to BWMC for evaluation.

The Anne Arundel County Police Department has deployed its SWAT team to Severna Park. The initial call came into authorities as a “fireworks complaint.” When officers arrived, it was determined that it was a barricade situation.

Details are developing and there is no word of any injuries. The incident is in the area of Robinson Road and Jerrard* Avenue.

* Jerrard Avenue is not shown on maps, however, reports from readers in the area are indicating this is just off Ritchie Highway near the Starbucks and Goskas Liquors.

    yeahhh ummm more like the asshole officers said nothing issuing any type of warning and when I woke up to 10 plus emergency response vehicles I literally opened my front door to ask the officer sitting in front of my house with his thumb up his ass what was going on, only to get SCREAMED at to go back inside. No one ever explained the situation and I think especially living with children you should at least be given a little information on the severe emergency that is threatening mine and other neighbors lives. and then to top it all off turns out the guy was harmless when i finally found out everything that was going on. sometimes the police/justice system needs to check themselves before they wreck themselves. poor guy was just off his meds he’s actually super nice and docile. and also just so everyone knows being naked isn’t the end of the world….its a 50/50 chance that you’ve got the same parts so get over your prude american selves.
