Military police may be cited for subduing soldier in Severn

Two military police officers from Fort Meade may receive a commendation for subduing a soldier charged with trying to run them over in a shopping center parking lot in Severn last week.

"I was kind of proud of them," said Lt. Col. William Sondervan, the provost marshal, or police chief, at Fort Meade, who said he was considering giving the men a commendation. The incident began Sunday night when the off-duty MPs, Sgt. Dominick Digiacomo, 32, and Pvt. Michael Middlebrooks, 20, said they saw a 1982 Chevrolet leave the Severn Square parking lot driving recklessly.

Anne Arundel County police said the driver had just driven into the front of the Lingerie and Gift Center on Ridge Road, demolishing the store front.

Colonel Sondervan said the two MPs got on their motorcycle and followed the car across the street to another shopping center.

Private Middlebrooks said he got off the motorcycle and was chased by the driver of the car. The car stalled, and both MPs, after a fight, subdued the driver.

Spc. Nathan A. Jacobson, 22, who is based at Fort Meade, was charged by county police with two counts of assault with intent to murder, one count of assault and battery, one count each of destruction of property, reckless driving and drunken driving.
