HANOVER, Md.Feb 29 2012 - A 21-year-old Glen Burnie man is being charged with assault after police say he tried to run over security officers and a patrol car outside of Arundel Mills Mall Saturday.
Officers were called to the mall parking lot at around 9:30 p.m. for reports of a fight. When they arrived they tried to pull over Nicholas Ryan Collins, but he refused to stop.
Police say Collins drove his Chevrolet Blazer towards the mall security officers, but they were able to get out of the way. He then drove into an Anne Arundel County officer’s marked patrol car and just missed hitting it.
Police say Collins then fled the parking lot, running through several red lights.
Collins was later pulled over on Telegraph Road near Route 100 and arrested without incident.
He is charged with first-degree assault, reckless endangerment, and several traffic violations.
