Attempted murder charges in Glen Burnie incident

January 22, 2004|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Two Anne Arundel County police officers were assaulted and one of their cars stolen during an altercation with three men and a girl at a Glen Burnie gas station early yesterday, police said.

Two detectives were meeting in unmarked cars in the parking lot of an Exxon station on South Crain Highway about 3 a.m. when four people got out of a 1997 Chrysler Sebring and approached them, police said. Harsh words were exchanged, and the detectives told the group to leave. As the four walked away, one of the men kicked a police car, officials said.

Detective Brad Rattell tried to arrest the man but was assaulted, police said. Detective J. Scott Seegers had driven away but returned to help Rattell and was also assaulted, police said.

One of the other two men got into a police car and drove to the parking lot of a nearby Target store, where Seegers caught up with him and pulled him from the vehicle, police said. The man then jumped into the Sebring, which had followed him, and the suspects rammed Seegers' vehicle before driving off, police said. The four suspects were stopped and arrested by other officers, police said.

Both detectives were treated for minor injuries at North Arundel Hospital.

Police arrested Nicholas James Dollinger, 22; Jesse James Dollinger, 20; and Shawn Michael McDonald, 19; all of Glen Burnie; and Staci Nicole Mitchell, 17, Linthicum, who was charged as an adult. All were charged with attempted second-degree murder, carjacking and first- and second-degree assault.
