Man sentenced for assault near Ocean City nightclub

WORCESTER COUNTY, Md. – A Delaware man will spend the next two years behind bars for assaulting a man at an Ocean City nightclub in the summer of 2017.

Myron Drummond was sentenced on Thursday to 5 years with all but 2 years suspended. The 29-year old man was convicted of second degree assault and sentenced by Richard R. Bloxom, retired Judge of the Worcester County Circuit Court. After Drummond is released, he will be on probation for 2 years and is ordered to pay full restitution to the victim for medical bills incurred as a result of the assault.

The charges stem from an incident filed with the Ocean City Police Department on June 24, 2017. Several men were involved in an assault near a nightclub in Ocean City. When officers arrived, they found the victim lying face down, bleeding from the mouth and unresponsive.

Police reviewed surveillance video and spoke with an eyewitness, who identified Drummond as the person who punched the victim in the face and head. Police found Drummond in the area and say they saw fresh blood smears on his t-shirt.

The victim was brought to the University of Maryland’s Shock Trauma Unit in Baltimore after it was determined that he had suffered a concussion and a dislocated jaw.
