A police report documenting last month's altercation between Baltimore Clerk of Courts Frank M. Conaway Sr. and a blogger says officers saw Conaway display a holstered handgun, but also lists him as the victim of an assault. Conaway, 78, and blogger Adam Meister, 35, have given different versions of the incident, and the eyewitness account of police who were driving by contradicts some of their key assertions. Police had withheld the report, citing the investigation by a special prosecutor, but released it Thursday morning after inquiries from The Baltimore Sun. The report is written as a "common assault," with Meister listed as the suspect and Conaway's name redacted from the "victim" field.

In the case involving an altercation last week between Baltimore Clerk of Circuit Court Frank M. Conaway Sr. and a blogger, State's Attorney Gregg Bernstein has said his office won't make the decision on whether to file criminal charges or handle any ensuing court proceedings. That responsibility will instead fall to Steven I. Kroll, a former Baltimore County prosecutor who now works as a coordinator for Maryland's association of state's attorneys. In recent months, Kroll's position has evolved from one that deals with ethics and training issues, to also serving as a special outside counsel for cases in which prosecutors say their offices have a potential conflict of interest.

An outside prosecutor is being called in to take charge of the investigation involving Baltimore Clerk of Circuit Court Frank M. Conaway Sr.'s expired gun permit, a spokesman for the Baltimore's state's attorney's office said Wednesday. Conaway "brandished" a firearm during an argument Monday with blogger Adam Meister outside Conaway's Northwest Baltimore home, according to city police. Conaway has said Meister tried to kick him in an altercation that was observed by officers who happened to be nearby.

State police said Baltimore Clerk of Circuit Court Frank M. Conaway Sr.'s permit to carry a concealed handgun expired in March, raising the possibility that he could face criminal charges after Monday's altercation with a blogger. According to city police, Conaway "brandished" a firearm during an argument with blogger Adam Meister outside the city official's Northwest Baltimore home. Conaway said he had a permit to carry the weapon, but state police spokeswoman Elena Russo said records show it expired in March.

One of Baltimore's most bizarre political sideshows took an ugly twist Monday, with police acknowledging that they were investigating a morning altercation between Clerk of Circuit Court Frank M. Conaway Sr. and blogger Adam Meister. Meister, who was sued by Conaway's daughter for $21 million after writing about tax credits on her homes, said the 78-year-old took a swing at him after the two engaged in an argument as the 35-year-old was jogging through the neighborhood. But unknown to Meister, Conaway says the incident was being observed by city police officers who were parked in a vehicle nearby and approached Conaway afterward.

Nick Mosby bounded along a row of ninth-grade boys at Baltimore's Civitas School with the energy of a football player about to dart onto the field. Citing his own upbringing by a single mother, he urged the young men to aim higher than the temptations of the city's streets. "If you dream about it, you'll become it," he said. Mosby, a 32-year-old Verizon engineer and community activist, says he had long dreamed of a career in politics before defeating a two-term city councilwoman in September's Democratic primary.

Baltimore City Councilwoman Belinda Conaway, who is running a write-in campaign to keep her seat in the Nov. 8 election, accused the city elections board Tuesday of committing "major fraud" by mailing out incorrect absentee ballots to 7th District voters. Conaway said she has confirmed that at least seven voters in her district received 6th District absentee ballots in the mail, and worries that the problem could be more widespread. Conaway said she sent a letter Tuesday to U.S. Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., asking him to intervene in the administration of the election.

Belinda Conaway, a two-term city councilwoman, chair of the powerful budget committee and daughter of a prominent West Baltimore political family, does not fit most definitions of a political outsider. But after losing the Democratic primary to a political newcomer allied with Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, Conaway has launched a write-in campaign in which she paints herself as an enemy of - and threat to - the political establishment. "The mayor, governor and other powers-that-be don't want any independent voices on the city council," Conaway told supporters at a campaign kick-off event this month.

Two Democrats who lost in close Baltimore City Council campaigns in September say they're not giving up. Incumbent 7th District Councilwoman Belinda Conaway and 13th District challenger Shannon Sneed have launched write-in campaigns for the November general election, seeking to defeat the candidates who beat them in the Sept. 13 primary. Longtime political observers said they've never heard of a successful write-in campaign in Baltimore, but the primary election's record-low voter turnout could give the challengers hope.

The city's primary election is over, but in one district, the bickering between candidates continues. Belinda Conaway, the only incumbent City Council member to lose her seat, has asked the U.S. attorney for Maryland to prosecute her challenger, alleging her opponent unlawfully used an IRS logo in campaign literature. Conaway failed by 648 votes in her bid for a third term representing the city's northwest side in the Democratic primary last week. She lays much of the blame for that loss on the campaign tactics of her opponent, Nick Mosby.
