A Baltimore man assaulted police before being TASERed after the girls basketball region semifinal game at Aberdeen High School Wednesday night.
Aberdeen police spokesman Lt. Fred Budnick said Teoine D. Carroll, 30, of the 500 block of Brunswick Street in Baltimore, was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, failure to obey and two counts of assault on a police officer.
After the girls MPSSAA region semifinal, which the Eagles won, school administrators and Aberdeen police directed the crowd to exit through a specific doorway. Budnick said Carroll attempted to exit through a restricted area and allegedly resisted an officer's orders and assaulted the officer when he was confronted.
"He wouldn’t abide by their request, and another officer assisted. Ultimately, he was arrested for disorderly conduct," Budnick said. "He was not compliant, and the TASER was used. He was arrested and brought here to the police station."
Aberdeen will host the region championship at 6:30 p.m. Friday.
