On April 8, 2006 Deputy W. Rishel # 169 initiated a Traffic Stop on Three Notch Rd. at Hermanville Rd. Lexington Park, Maryland. Upon making contact with the operator, Montreece D. Mitchell, age 20, of Patuxent River, Maryland, Deputy Rishel detected the odor of an alcoholic beverage on the operator. Ms. Mitchell was unable to satisfactorily complete the standard field sobriety tests and was placed under arrest.
A search incident to arrest revealed Ms. Mitchell was in possession of suspected marijuana which was located inside her coat pocket. Ms. Mitchell was placed inside Deputy Rishel's police vehicle at which time she began to kick the rear door glass causing it to break from the metal frame. Ms. Mitchell was removed from the vehicle to prevent further damage to the police vehicle. Upon exiting the police vehicle Ms. Mitchell continued to struggle with the officers by spitting at the officers and attempting to kick the officers. Ms. Mitchell was subsequently subdued again and transported to the Detention Center.
Ms. Mitchell was charged with Driving While Under the Influence of Alcohol, Driving While Intoxicated, Resisting Arrest, Possession of a Controlled Dangerous Substance, and Property Destruction to the Police Vehicle. Ms. Mitchell is currently incarcerated pending a bond hearing before the District Court Commissioner.
