Naked man charged in Annapolis yacht break-in

A naked man was arrested and charged with burglary and theft after he was suspected of breaking into a yacht early Friday and stealing alcohol, Annapolis police said. Employees on a boat docked at the Annapolis Yacht Basin in the first block of Compromise St. were awakened about 2 a.m. by sounds of an intruder, police said. The boat's engineer awoke to see a man clothed in a black V-neck T-shirt and dark jeans in his bedroom and chased him off the yacht. Found on the dock nearby were the only items that seemed to be missing from the boat: a six-pack of beer and a bottle of vodka, police said. An officer summoned by boat employees heard rustling in nearby bushes and called for whoever was there to come out. A naked man emerged, police said. Also found were soaked garments that matched the description of the clothes given by the boat's engineer, police said. A wallet inside one of the shoes identified the suspect as Daniel A. Rose, 23, of Eldersburg. He faces three counts of burglary and one of misdemeanor theft.

Councilman Moxley charged with DUI after accident

Baltimore City police have charged Baltimore County Councilman Stephen G. Samuel Moxley, a Catonsville Democrat, with driving under the influence of alcohol after an accident in West Baltimore early Friday morning. Moxley, 50, was involved in a 1:20 a.m. four-car accident in the 2000 block of West Franklin St., police said. Anthony Guglielmi, city police spokesman, said Moxley "was swaying a bit" when officers arrived at the scene. He was asked to perform a field sobriety test, which he failed. Guglielmi said that Moxley was then put in custody and transported to the Western District police station, where he declined to undergo a breathalyzer test. Moxley was then transported to Central Booking, where he was processed and charged. In September 2005 he was given probation before judgment and a year of supervised probation and ordered to enroll in a drunken-driving program after he sideswiped a vehicle three months earlier.
