On Tuesday, April 11, 2023 at approximately 7:02 PM, officers of the Cumberland Police Department responded to a business in the 200 block of Greene Street for a possible intoxicated driver.  Officers arrived on scene and contacted the subject who was identified as Dylan Coakley.  Officers detected the odor of an alcoholic beverage on Coakley’s breath and person.  Police determined that Coakley had been operating a vehicle.  Coakley was then placed under arrest for suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.  Coakley then resisted officers’ attempts to place him in hand restraints and pulled away from the officers.  Police were able to take him into custody after a brief struggle.  Coakley was then transported to Central Booking.  It was determined that Coakley would be transported by ambulance to UPMC Western Maryland.  While en route to the hospital, Coakley assaulted an officer and medical personnel. He was issued citations for driving under the influence of alcohol and driving while impaired by alcohol.  Police filed for additional criminal charges against Coakley at the District Court of Allegany County and a criminal summons was issued.  Coakley was served with the summons.
