TOWSON -- A Woodlawn man who led authorities on a lengthy pursuit across several interstates and county roads Wednesday was charged with assault, auto theft and reckless endangerment, county police said yesterday.

Deshawn Enid Dorsey, 21, of the 3100 block of Fairview Road was charged with three counts of assault and one count each of auto theft and reckless endangerment, said Officer Vickie Warehime of the county Police Department.

Dorsey was being held in the county Detention Center on $75,000 bail.

Owner can keep dog if it stays out of county


WOODLAWN -- Bango, a male Rottweiler seized after attacking a neighbor on Beacon Hill Road last month, may be returned to his owner if the owner keeps the dog out of the county, pays $1,575 in fines and drops a legal appeal of a previous banning order on the dog.

Sewell V. Price, assistant superintendent of animal control, said the dog will remain at the county shelter in Baldwin for 14 days after the Sept. 16 ruling. If the owner, Thomas G. Scherr, does not retrieve the dog by then, he will be euthanized, Price said.

Bango was banned from the county last year and has been seen running loose numerous times since. He has attacked the next-door neighbors at least twice and frightened area children.

The Baltimore Police Department's Northern District will sponsor a bicycle competition for youths in the precinct beginning at 8: 30 a.m. Saturday at the Johns Hopkins University's Homewood Campus.

There will be an obstacle course and road race. Competitors will be divided into two age groups -- 10 to 12 and 13 to 16. Helmets and safety inspections will be provided for free to participants.
