UPDATE: Off Duty Trooper Improving After Denton Incident

Posted: Updated:

DENTON, Md. - Officials say the off-duty Trooper who was injured in Caroline County on Wednesday night, has improved, and that there will be no charges in the incident. Maryland State Police say the off-duty Trooper, who works out of the MSP Easton Barrack, has been upgraded, and is now listed in serious condition. He is still being treated at Shock Trauma in Baltimore.

After an investigation, Police say, at this time, charges are not being filed against the three teens who were questioned, and have been released. According to the report, the teens were driving near 7th Street and Market Street, in Denton, around 7:15 PM on Wednesday, when they ran into some garbage cans. The driver reportedly tried to push them out of the way, then the passenger reached out and grabbed the can to move it further out of the way.

This is when the off-duty Trooper arrived on the scene, and reportedly thought the teens were messing around with the trash cans. Police say the trooper was in his personal car, wearing plainclothes, not showing his badge, or ID card as he approached the car.

Authorities believe the teen was startled and unsure of who the Trooper was, and what he wanted, so he drove away for safety. However, the Trooper was touching the car, and was dragged down the street until he was knocked loose, and injured as a result.

The investigation is continuing into this incident.
