Trade council again endorses stadium

January 18, 1995

The Anne Arundel Trade Council, which represents about 900 businesses, unanimously endorsed yesterday a report that says building a 78,600-seat stadium for the Redskins in Laurel would create 358 jobs and bring about $8.4 million in taxes to the state and county.

It was the second time the trade council's 35-member board of directors had voted to support the proposed $160 million stadium next to Laurel Race Course. The council endorsed the stadium a year ago, just after Jack Kent Cooke, owner of the National Football League team, announced that he wanted to move to Laurel.

The Anne Arundel Economic Development Corp. commissioned the $50,000 report done by the national consulting firm Arthur Andersen. The report was released Friday.

In October, Robert C. Wilcox, the county's administrative hearing officer, rejected Mr. Cooke's proposal on grounds that the site is too small. Mr. Cooke has filed an appeal.

Man arrested in attack on his brother

County police arrested an Odenton man Saturday afternoon after an attack on his brother, then charged him further after the windshield of a patrol car was kicked out.

Police were called to a home in the 1300 block of Farrara Drive shortly before 12:30 p.m. by a woman who said her son was drunk and out of control. When they arrived, officers found a man punching and choking Charles Kacin Jr., 30, who was identified as the older brother of the suspect, police said.

Officers arrested the suspect, placed him in handcuffs, buckled him into the front seat and placed shackles around his ankles. Still, the man managed to twist his body and kick the front windshield, causing about $400 damage, police said.

Mark David Sullivan, 27, of the 1300 block of Farrara Dr., was charged with battery, resisting arrest, disorderly intoxication and malicious destruction of property in the incident, police said.
