State police have charged a 22-year-old Harford County man with attempted murder and assault in connection with a stabbing during what police called a near riot at a crowded Fallston bar early Sunday morning.
Security workers at Tully's Bar on Belair Road were escorting Tyrell Lamont Young of Edgewood from the building when police arrived at about 1:22 a.m. Police said they determined that Young had been involved in a stabbing inside the bar and arrested him. He is being held at the Harford County Detention Center without bond.
Douglas Reginald Green, 25, of Aberdeen, is charged as an accessory in that same stabbing. He and Young are also charged with reckless endangerment.
David Swedo, 26, of Bel Air sustained several stab wounds to his back, police said. He was treated at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center and released.
More than 40 officers, including Harford County Sheriff's deputies and Bel Air and Baltimore County police, eventually responded to quell several altercations at the bar, which with more than 600 patrons was well over its official capacity, police said. The melee spilled out into the parking lot.
A sheriff's deputy was struck by a vehicle attempting to leave the property. The driver, Sylvia Lynne Core, 44, of Aberdeen, was charged with assault and later released on $10,000 bond. A passenger in Core's care, Thomas V. Hill Jr., 34, of Gwynn Oak, was charged with possession of marijuana. Antoine D. Smith, 31, another passenger, was charged with second-degree assault. Both have been released from the detention center on bond. The sheriff's deputy was not seriously injured, police said.
Robert A. McClellan, 22, of Edgewood was also arrested for disorderly conduct and inciting the crowd in a separate incident in the parking lot. He was later released on his own recognizance.
