Man dies after fall through cabinet

December 20, 1992|By Staff Report

An Annapolis man died of injuries he suffered after someone apparently pushed him through a china cabinet in a fight at a neighbor's apartment Friday night, police said.

James Michael Pope, 36, was pronounced dead at Anne Arundel Medical Center shortly after arriving by ambulance. Annapolis police said an artery in his right arm was severed, then he had a heart attack.

Police and others tried to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

Details of the incident, which occurred in the Forest Village Apartments in the 1200 block of Graff Court shortly after 10:30 p.m., were sketchy. A neighbor who reported a woman screaming called police.

When officers arrived at the third-floor apartment, they said they found Mr. Pope, who lived next door, on the floor bleeding.

Neighbors and witnesses said a fight broke out among several people.

It was not immediately clear if Mr. Pope was involved in the fracas.

Police were trying to determine yesterday if Mr. Pope was deliberately pushed.

Authorities would not release the names of the people who lived in the apartment.
