BERLIN, Md. - A man has been arrested after apparently purposefully hitting people with his truck in Berlin. According to the Worcester County Sheriff's Office, they responded to a call about pedestrians being hit by a silver Toyota Tacoma on Trappe Road. The information was released, and Maryland Natural Resources Police were able to catch up with the truck.
Police say that a witness identified the truck, and one of the passengers, Cedrick Fooks, 20, of Bridgeville. The witness reportedly told police that Fooks was the driver who hit the pedestrians, and he did it intentionally. Fooks was arrested, and charged with 1st and 2nd degree assault, along with driving without a license.
An investigation revealed that Fooks, and three other people, were in Berlin for a party at the Masonic Lodge. At the party, Fooks apparently got into a fight with someone. Police say that Fooks then left, got into his truck, and started driving up and down the road, until he saw the person he fought with. Police say Fooks then turned the truck towards the man, and hit him, and the woman he was with.
They both were treated at PRMC for non-life-threatening injuries. Fooks is being held on $250,000 bond.
