DISORDERLY CONDUCT: On February 8, deputies responded to the area of Columbus Drive in Lexington Park for a report of a fight. As deputies arrived they encountered Leonard Darnell Mackall, 20 of Lexington Park, along with another individual walking from the scene of the fight. The other individual was bleeding profusely from the hand/wrist area and both individuals had blood on their faces and clothing. Deputies attempted to interview the individuals about the fight. Both refused to cooperate with the deputies or answer questions. The rescue squad arrived to treat the injuries. Mackall began to interfere with the rescue crew. Mackall was told to stop interfering, which he refused. Mackall began to yell to others which caused a crowd to gather around to observe what was occurring. Mackall was told several times to stop his disorderly behavior, which he refused. Mackall was arrested for disorderly conduct, failing to obey a lawful order of a police officer, and obstruction/hindering a law enforcement officer from performing his/her duties. As deputies were dealing with the situation, Frederick Boyd Armstead, 34 of Lexington Park, arrived on the scene in the middle of the disorderly crowd. Armstead was asked to leave the area, which he initially complied. A short time later, as deputies were still attempting to calm and disburse the disorderly crowd, Armstead reappeared. Armstead was attempting to speak with Mackall who was in the process of being placed under arrest. Armstead was told by deputies to back away and leave the scene. Armstead refused which caused Mackall's behavior to become louder and more belligerent. Armstead was arrested and charged with interfering with a lawful arrest, disorderly conduct, hindering and failing to obey a lawful order of a police officer.
