Upon arrival deputies made contact with Chandler Tyler Thornton,(24 of Oldtown, MD), and Jennifer Nicole Moore (37 of Frostburg,MD).  A  warrant check of both subjects revealed an active arrest warrant for Thornton. At that time, Deputies assisted by a State Police Trooper attempted to take Thornton into custody. Thornton began to struggle with the officers in an effort to escape.
