Man, 40, is charged in road rage incident

Maryland State Police have charged a 40-year-old Pikesville man with six counts of first-degree assault in a road rage incident on the Baltimore Beltway last month. Stephane Roger Dejean, who was arrested Tuesday, is accused of running a Chrysler PT Cruiser off the outer loop at Security Boulevard about 1 p.m. Feb. 14 while driving a 1997 Nissan Maxima, police said. The Chrysler struck a concrete jersey wall and its six occupants, including three children, suffered injuries that were not life-threatening, police said. Anyone who saw the incident is asked to call 410-686-3101.

Club 410 targeted for shutdown

Baltimore police are moving to shut down a Northeast Baltimore club that they say has been a source of several criminal complaints. Officials say Club 410, in the 4500 block of Belair Road, "poses a considerable threat to public safety." A hearing notice delivered to management Tuesday afternoon outlines five significant incidents since August 2008, including the storage of illegal firearms, shootings, assaults and drug sales. A hearing is tentatively scheduled for 1 p.m. March 16 at police headquarters.

Schools boost effort to prevent suicides

Officials from Anne Arundel County schools, mental health and law enforcement have stepped up suicide-prevention outreach to students amid an increase in youth suicides and after police found four truant middle school students discussing suicide in a wooded area last week. Superintendent Kevin M. Maxwell sent a letter to parents Tuesday pointing out warning signs and tools they can use for assistance. Since July, five current and former students have committed suicide, officials said.
