On Sunday, April 30, 2017, Sargent K. Moritz of the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office was conducting a premise check at Butler’s Place in Lexington Park, when he observed two male subjects engaged in a verbal dispute in the parking lot.

The dispute quickly escalated before Sgt. Moritz could intervene, with Daniel Sylvester Young, 52 of Salisbury, pulling out a set of nunchucks and aggressively engaging Sgt. Moritz and the other subject. Young was found to be intoxicated and was uncooperative causing a public disturbance and created a public safety issue as patrons exited the bar to watch the incident.

Responding police units were forced to block all southbound traffic on Route 235 for the safety of bar patrons and police units on scene.

Young was subsequently arrested by Deputy S. Bowie and transported to the St. Mary’s County Detention Center and charged with Concealing a Dangerous Weapon and Disorderly Conduct.

      It must be the privilege thing Big Dookie is always talking about. No, wait, that can’t be right.

      Drunk…with nunchucks? The Deputy was probably laughing too hard to write the citation…

    Wait a second here. A black man displayed a weapon at an officer and wasn’t shot? Big Dookie this must be fake news.

    I can’t believe Butler’s Place is allowed to seat open. What department is responsible for checking structural code at establishments such as Butler’s Place, Stardust or Last Drop? Butlers place is the worst since it open up onto 235.

    Big Dookie?

    Had to close 235 because the patrons were not smart enough to stay out of the road! Past time to require an ID card to get in a bar with an IQ Test level that indicates smart enough to stay out of the street. You can’t make this stuff up and who ties their shoes in the morning.
