ASSAULT ON POLICE OFFICER - On August 22, 2014, Deputy Schultz responded to the Food Lion parking located on Alton Lane in California, after a citizen reported individuals in a vehicle possibly smoking drugs. Deputy Schultz located the vehicle, a blue Acura RL, and approached the vehicle. The driver, later identified as Wayne Aloyious Jordan JR., 24, of Great Mills, quickly threw something into the passenger side of the vehicle. Jordan then put the vehicle in reverse and accelerated rapidly striking another parked vehicle. Jordan placed the vehicle in drive and accelerated toward Deputy Schultz striking Deputy Schultz. Jordan continued forward striking another parked vehicle. Additional deputies arrived and attempted to stop Jordan's vehicle. Jordan refused to stop and continued to drive in a dangerous manner through the parking lot. Jordan's vehicle struck 2 more parked vehicles before coming to a stop. Jordan then fled on foot. He was apprehended a short time later by deputies. A K9 alerted for the presence of a controlled dangerous substance during a subsequent scan of Jordan's vehicle. A large bag containing several smaller bags of suspected marijuana was found inside the vehicle. Also found inside the vehicle were various items of stolen property.
