Question of the Day
Boy, 9, charged with vandalizing playground
Salisbury police have charged a 9-year-old boy with vandalizing a city playground.
It happened Tuesday at the playground at the corner of Light and Newton streets.
A police officer was called to the park for a report of someone vandalizing the playground equipment.
Police said the officer spotted someone trying to hide under the slide and drop a can of spray paint. Several pieces of equipment were marked with spray paint and the word “blood” was painted on the slide.
The boy was arrested and charged with malicious destruction of property over $500 and released to the custody of a parent.
Officials penalize bar after fatal shooting
Washington County liquor officials ordered Zipper’s bar in Hagerstown to pay a $1,000 fine and put the bar on 60 days probation after a fatal shooting there in May.
The Washington County Board of License Commissioners told owner Randy Jones and his son, manager Randall Jones, in a letter that any violation during the probation period could lead to Zipper’s losing its liquor license.
The board found that the Joneses were negligent by not having “adequate managerial personnel operating the tavern” on the night of the shooting. But the board noted their efforts to improve security with cameras and metal detectors.
Christopher Ayala, 23, of Greencastle, Pa., was fatally shot at the bar in May. The shooting suspect, Stephen Urquhart, 26, of New York, is still at large.
