June 16th, 2017 by WCBC Radio

On Thursday, June 15, 2017 at approximately 11:55 PM, officers from the Cumberland Police Department responded to the 600 block of Columbia Avenue for a fight in progress.  Upon arrival, police began investigating the incident.  While the officers were speaking with witnesses to the incident, they pointed out the male suspect who was now driving a truck down the street.  Officers stopped the truck and identified the suspect as Aaron Long.  A wanted status check of Long revealed that he had an active bench warrant through the Allegany County Sheriff’s Office for failure to appear for court.  When officers informed Long that he had a warrant and that he was under arrest, Long resisted and attempted to flee on foot.  Officers were able to catch him and place him in hand restraints.  Long was transported to the police station and processed.  He was served with the bench warrant and additional on-view charges.  He was taken before the District Court Commissioner where he was remanded to the Allegany County Detention Center on two $2,000 bonds.
