PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY, Md. — Young, ambitious and dedicated to helping young people, Maryland State Trooper Wesley Brown had a lot going for him at age 24.

All that, however, was taken from him when he was viciously ambushed in the early morning hours after working his part-time security job at Applebee's restaurant in Prince George's County, Md. Earlier in the evening, he had escorted out a disorderly man who was refusing to pay his bill.
