Baltimore Police Charge Man With Attempted Murder of Officer

Baltimore Sun (Maryland)

A 26-year-old man accused of trying to run down a Baltimore police officer with a car was charged yesterday with attempted murder, officials said.

Two officers stopped a maroon Oldsmobile about 9:30 p.m. Thursday in the 600 block of McCollough Circle in West Baltimore. As Officer Joshua Chabalowski got out approached the Oldsmobile, the driver barreled toward him, police said.

Chabalowski fired several times, but the Oldsmobile escaped said Agent Donny Moses, a police spokesman.

Police later discovered that Vincent Fletcher had walked into Sinai Hospital shortly after the incident suffering from a grazing bullet wound to his chin, police officials said. Fletcher had been released from the hospital, but officers tracked him down and arrested him.

Fletcher was charged yesterday afternoon, said Officer Troy Harris, a police spokesman.

Chabalowski was not injured and was scheduled to remain on regular duty, Moses said.

Officers were seeking another possible passenger in the car yesterday. Anyone with information is asked to call the Central District at 410-396-2411.
