Man, 18, arrested on drug, DWI charges after accident


County police arrested an 18-year-old Brooklyn Park man on drug and drunken driving charges Wednesday.

Police said they found $1,100 worth of marijuana in the man's wrecked pickup truck, which had struck a mailbox on Mountain Road and a store in a strip shopping center before overturning.

Adam Christopher Morris of the 5600 block of Patrick Henry Drive suffered minor injuries in the accident, police said. He was treated at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore and released yesterday.

Police said they charged him with driving under the influence of alcohol and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.

Police said Morris' eastbound 1989 Ford Ranger hit a mailbox in the 800 block of Mountain Road about 11 p.m. Wednesday, swerved back into the road and continued for three miles until it crossed the road into the parking lot of a shopping center in the 4400 block of Mountain Road near Lakeshore Drive and hit a store and overturned.

Police said officers had been called about a vehicle hitting a mailbox. They went on to the shopping center, and found the wrecked truck.

Fifteen bags of marijuana weighing 110.4 grams were in the truck, police said.

An 18-year-old Glen Burnie man was arrested Wednesday and charged with kidnapping his former girlfriend, county police said.

Officers arrested John Wayne Kiser Jr. of the 1000 block of Little Baer Court as he drove up to his home about 5: 40 p.m. Wednesday, police said. His former girlfriend, Susan Ann Holden, 19, of the 600 block of Sandy Ridge Road in Glen Burnie, was in the back seat of the vehicle, said police spokeswoman Officer Carol Frye.

Holden told officers she had been hit and choked in the car, but she had no serious injuries, Frye said. Holden had broken up with Kiser the day before, and he wanted to talk to her, Frye said.

Kiser was charged with kidnapping, false imprisonment and assault, police said.

Police said Holden's mother called police about 5: 40 p.m., saying a man had taken her daughter from their home against her will. Officers got a description of the car and waited at Kiser's home.
