The second of two bounty hunters accused of bursting into an Ellicott City apartment, taking the occupants' money and holding them there for more than two hours pleaded guilty yesterday to five counts of false imprisonment after conceding that he made a "mistake" and stayed "too long." "It definitely was a mistake, and because of that, that's why I'm in the situation I'm in," Everett Ambush Chambers, 27, told Howard County Circuit Judge Diane O. Leasure. Noting prosecutors' belief that Chambers, of the 4400 block of Mary Ave., was "less culpable" than his co-defendant, Darnell Anthony Brown, 30, Leasure sentenced Chambers to 18 months in jail, suspending all but the month and a half he served while the case was pending, and placed him on two years' unsupervised probation.

The 25-year-old woman had known William Thomas Parrish III since they were about 16 and had started seeing him romantically in December after he was released from jail. A couple of months later, Parrish was holding her against her will in a modest brick home owned by his grandfather in Finksburg, according to court documents. By the time she managed to escape, the woman says, Parrish had beaten, burned and assaulted her, gagged her with socks and tattooed her with his name. Parrish was arrested Saturday after authorities searched the house and is facing charges of first- and second-degree assault, false imprisonment, reckless endangerment and malicious destruction of property, police said.

Baltimore police believe they may have thwarted a killing Wednesday when they tracked down a 17-year-old boy who had been abducted while on his way to school and was being held for ransom in a vacant dwelling in Southwest Baltimore. About 9 a.m., an officer was flagged down by a man who said his son had been abducted. As he was talking to police, he received a call on his cell phone from his son's number, and on the line was a man who demanded cash and two "bricks," a term typically used to describe a large package of drugs.
