Deputies responded to the reported fight in progress in a Lexington Park neighborhood. Once on the scene Deputies observed an extremely large crowd of people outside in the parking lot. Michael Antonio Barnes (Age 21 of Lexington Park) was ordered to cease his disorderly actions and he refused. He was told he was under arrest and he failed to comply, which led to Deputies utilizing Pepper Spray. Suspect Barnes turned and ran before being placed into custody.

Suspect Angel Patricia Carter (Age 23 of Lexington Park) interfered with the arrest and ordered Deputies to let Suspect Barnes go. She was arrested. It was her arrest that led to Suspect Nathan Tyrell Galloway (Age 22 of Lexington Park) to become disorderly and incite the crowd. He failed to comply with orders of the Deputies on the scene and he was advised he was under arrest. After failing to follow the directions of the Deputies attempting to place him into custody, a TASER was utilized to gain his cooperation.

As the crowd grew in size, a 16 year old juvenile male was arrested for his disorderly actions. He began to spit at Deputies and continuously spit in the rear of the marked police vehicle after he was arrested.

As additional Deputies responded Suspect Paula Elizabeth Perry (Age 40 of Great Mills) who had followed instructions and left the scene, returned and she was arrested without further incident. No one was injured.
