On Saturday, May 14, 2022 at approximately 10:15 PM, officers of the Cumberland Police Department responded to the 300 block of Greene Street for a noise disturbance.  Upon their arrival, they contacted the caller who advised that her neighbor was playing loud music.  Police contacted the neighbor and had him turn the music down.  At this time, the neighbor would not provide any of his information to the officer.  After further investigation, the officer was able to identify the neighbor as Ronnie Swancey.  It was discovered that Swancey had an active felony arrest warrant. The warrant was issued in connection with an assault investigation that began on May 7, 2022.  On this date, Swancey was reported to be the suspect in an assault involving a knife.  

When police advised Swancey that he was under arrest, he did not comply, caused a disturbance, and resisted arrest.  Officers were eventually able to secure Swancey and transport him to the police station.  He was then transported to Central Booking and later seen by a District Court Commissioner for his initial appearance.  Swancey was remanded to the Allegany County Detention Center, held without bond.
