Two bystanders performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation to revive a Glen Burnie man after he fell off his bicycle at the edge of the Southdale Shopping Center parking lot Wednesday night, county police said.

Mary Jo Tingle, 38, of Severn told police she saw the man lose control of the bicycle near a parking lot exit to Mountain Road, where he hit a curb and flew off the bike.

Tingle said she ran to the man, checked his pulse and found he was not breathing. She and another bystander, Christopher Salazar of Fort Meade, began CPR and within 30 seconds the man started breathing again, according to the police.

Michael Bower, 29, of the 2000 block of Preston Road, who was taken by paramedics to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center, was released yesterday.

Police said he told them he did not recall what caused him to fall.

A Catonsville man was arrested and his car seized after a car stop and search of the vehicle in Glen Burnie turned up marijuana, county police said.

Steven Patrick Miles, 19, of the 1200 block of Canberwell Road was charged with possession of marijuana.

Officer Eric Gennett reported that he stopped the 1988 Mazda 626 when he noticed it lacked a front license tag. The driver told him both plates were attached to the rear, police said.

Gennett checked the registration and found the car was not owned by the driver, who said the car was owned and had been given to him by his mother. A dispatcher told Gennett the car had been involved in drug-related incidents.

Police said the driver agreed to a search of the car, which turned up seeds, stems and buds that later tested positive for marijuana.

The owner was allowed to remove valuables from the car before it was confiscated, police said.

Ticking noise prompts evacuation of school

The fire department was called to the school about 7: 30 a.m., but the source of the ticking turned out to be a tape recorder that had been left on inadvertently, officials said.
