Question of the Day
About 2 a.m., troopers spotted the man riding a skateboard the wrong way on Route 140. After they stopped him, they learned there were two open warrants for his arrest.
The man fled into the path of a Jeep, police said. After he was hit, he got up and kept running.
Officers eventually caught the suspect. He was flown to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, where he was listed in stable condition.
Cardinal released after brain surgery
Cardinal William Keeler has been released from Johns Hopkins Hospital after spending about a week recovering from brain surgery, a spokesman for the Archdiocese of Baltimore said.
The 78-year-old cardinal returned home to continue his recuperation and therapy after surgeons inserted a shunt in his brain to allow excess cerebrospinal fluid to drain away, spokesman Sean Caine said.
Cardinal Keeler suffered a head injury in a car accident in Italy last year and had been having trouble walking, a symptom of fluid on the brain.
Since the surgery, Mr. Caine said the cardinal has resumed some of his activities as Baltimore’s archbishop and is able to walk.
Editor cleared of assault charges
A Baltimore judge yesterday cleared the editor of the Baltimore Examiner of assault charges after city prosecutors declined to pursue the case.
Frank J. Keegan, 58, was charged with three counts of second-degree assault and three counts of assault with intent to injure, all misdemeanors.
According to court documents, Mr. Keegan’s neighbor, David P. Ayers, said he pounded on Mr. Keegan’s door May 24 after his 3-year-old daughter had trouble breathing — the result, Mr. Ayers said, of cigarette smoke seeping from Mr. Keegan’s home into his own.
Mr. Ayers said he saw Mr. Keegan holding what looked like a shotgun. He said Mr. Keegan pointed the gun at him, his wife and daughter.
