March 1st, 2015 by WCBC Radio

On Sunday, March 1, 2015, at approximately 5:19 a.m., the Frostburg Police Department was called to respond to the Days Inn for a disturbance. Lt. K. Grove and Sgt. G. Kroll responded. Upon arrival, police met with the hotel manager, who reported that he had gone to check on loud noise in one of the hotel rooms and discovered that an exit sign and light fixture in the hall had been broken. Both appeared to have been struck by a person and were broken into pieces, and there was loud noise coming from one of the rooms. Police made contact with two occupants of the room. One occupant, Myles Douglas Morse, 26, of Hagerstown, was belligerent and aggressive with police, and had a bleeding cut on his wrist, consistent with the damage to the light and exit sign in the hallway. Morse refused to provide identification and was told that he was under arrest. Morse then aggressively charged toward Lt. Grove, who subdued him by the use of a Taser electronic control device and placed him under arrest. In addition to the information known, a witness reported observing that Morse had cut his arm in the process of breaking the light in the hallway. Morse was treated by Frostburg Area Ambulance Service personnel, and then transported to the Frostburg Police Department. Morse was charged with malicious destruction of property, being intoxicated and creating a disturbance, and disorderly conduct. Morse was taken before a District Court Commissioner and released on personal recognizance, pending trial in District Court.
