Ruppersberger resting after surgery on right foot


TOWSON -- Surgery on County Executive C. A. Dutch Ruppersberger's right foot was completed yesterday in a two-hour operation at Union Memorial Hospital, where he will likely remain for several days, spokesman Michael H. Davis said.

The operation went as expected, Davis said. Ruppersberger must stay off the foot for at least six weeks, the first two of which will be spent at home.

The operation by Dr. Mark S. Myerson, who specializes in foot and ankle surgery, was to correct a deformity caused by flat feet and relieve nerve damage that occurred after an operation on the foot two years ago.

The FBI has arrested an Indiana man accused of distributing child pornography on the Internet and traveling here to engage in sexual acts with a minor.

Jeffrey D. Cosby, 42, of Indianapolis was arrested Friday near the 200 block of E. Pratt St., the FBI said. He was charged with traveling in interstate commerce for the purposes of engaging in a sexual act with a minor and distributing child pornography in interstate commerce using a computer, the FBI said.
