The Frederick Police Department arrest Trotez J. Leonard for various crimes in the area of W. All Saints St.
On 04/19/16 at approximately 1915 Hrs Leonard was located by police in the area of W. All Saints St possessing an open alcoholic beverage in a public place. Officers attempted to cite Leonard for the offense. During the course of the contact Leonard littered in front of officers. This prompted the officers to place Leonard under arrest. Leonard resisted the officer’s efforts to place him under arrest. Officers had to deploy OC spray as well as a TASER to eventually secure Leonard. During the course of the altercation Leonard struck one of the officers in the face with a closed fist. This activity drew the attention of a large crowd that was attending a service in close proximity to the arrest. The crowd was acting in a disorderly manner, yelling and shouting obscenities toward the officers. Due to the large crowd and potential for civil unrest the Frederick Police Department requested the assistance of the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office as well as the Maryland State Police. After a short time and once Leonard was removed from the area the crowd dissipated and no additional arrests were made.
