Berlin man allegedly led police on brief chase, resisted arrest following domestic dispute

PITTSVILLE, Md. – A Berlin man is in custody after he fled following a domestic incident in an area parking lot Thursday evening.

Just before 6 PM, a deputy from the Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office responded to the parking lot of the Dollar General Store in Pittsville for a reported domestic altercation in the parking lot.

The responding deputy learned that the subject, identified as 25-year-old Ventrel Moore Jr., had fled the area on foot prior to police arrival. It was also learned that Moore was prohibited from having contact with the female he had gotten into the altercation with, due to a protective order that she had previously obtained.

Officials say they located Moore walking nearby, but he allegedly began to flee on foot as the deputy approached him. Moore led the deputy on a brief chase before the deputy caught up to him, however, he was uncooperative and began resisting arrest. The deputy eventually succeeded in placing Moore in handcuffs while Moore created a disturbance in the community with his yelling. Deputies had to use a cage equipped patrol vehicle in order to transport Moore.

Moore was charged with violation of a protective order, resisting arrest, disturbing the peace, and disorderly conduct. He is currently being held without bond at the Wicomico County Detention Center.
