A 30-year-old Brooklyn man wanted on attempted murder charges since a June 27 incident in which he allegedly assaulted an Anne Arundel County police officer with his car was arrested yesterday in Southwest Baltimore.

Police said Ronald Matthew Fisher was taken into custody without incident while sitting on the steps of a Pigtown rowhouse yesterday morning.

Fisher had been sought on attempted murder charges since a June 27 traffic stop in which he was pulled over in Brooklyn Park for driving without a license plate, police said.

The driver in that incident drove off with county Officer Kenneth Collier holding onto his car - ramming the officer into a parked pickup truck outside a Brooklyn Park liquor store, according to police.

Collier was treated for minor injuries, while a fellow officer and two passengers he pulled out of the car were unhurt, according to police.

Police said the man got away in the car, driving a Dodge Shadow with one license tag that had been reported stolen from a Honda Civic days earlier in Baltimore.

Fisher's last known address was in the 3700 block of Fifth St., in the Brooklyn area of the city.

Anne Arundel detectives delivered fliers to the city's Southern District asking patrol officers to look out for the suspect, who frequented the Pigtown neighborhood.

When questioned yesterday by city officers, Fisher denied being the wanted man. But county detectives arrived and identified him, and he was placed under arrest.

Fisher was being held yesterday at the county Detention Center on four counts of attempted murder and related charges, police said.
