Citizen Complaints Lead to Heavy Traffic Charges for Driver

On August 7, 2015, the Sheriff’s Office received several complaints from citizens concerning the reckless operation of a white pick-up truck traveling along Route 238 in the northern end of St. Mary's County. One citizen provided a video of the truck operating with total disregard for other drivers.
