    Wow! What a low life!
    They should charge him with attempted kidnapping as well.

    Would of ended quick if the victim was armed. You dont see as much of this crap in Texas. Even the church shooter got shot down by a citizen. Guns save lives and the bad guys have them regardless. Liberals are too dumb to see that.

        Russian troll? LOL you’re an idiot. Funny how you can’t dispute what I said though, just a lame liberal insult.

      Wow! What a twisted interpretation of the recent events, in Texas… the State that holds the record for number of mass-shootings just pushed the 2009 Fort Hood shooting out of the Top 10 to make room for its latest. Three of the current Top 10 Mass Shootings have taken place, in Texas. Tell the dozens killed, countless others maimed, or, who’s lives have been forever changed. Tell them how well those gun laws benefited them over the years. Please go Make America Great Again by doing something more productive with your time.

    Just another POS squirming out from the sewers of Waldorf.

    You think his eyes are closed now?

    Wait till he makes his rack in Jessup.

    Shouldn’t there be two charges for kidnapping there also? If it were my wife and kids, old Arthur’d be tied up in the basement having a tea party with Mr. Blowtorch and Mrs. Ironpipe

    Look at his face, he was just High.

  10. Newsy on November 9, 2017 at 7:48 am

    I’m glad the family is ok. I hope she beat the daylights out of him for jumping in her car with a child present.

  11. Adam 12 on November 9, 2017 at 8:14 am

    He probably needed the car to go to work. That’s my guess.

    PCP is bad for you

  13. TonySup on November 9, 2017 at 8:29 am

    Just carjacking? If I were responsible for keeping the public safe and deterring these violent acts this individual would get every relevant charge tacked on: kidnapping, child abduction, assault, etc.
    Bet Charles County will send him right back to the streets to prey on your wives and children asap.

    • Adam 12 on November 9, 2017 at 11:05 am

      You have no idea how the system works. This fine upstanding citizen will be indicted in the next month and that’s when the charges will be racked up. Be patient. You are probably correct about him being right back on the streets though.

      He was charged with more than carjacking. SMNEWSNEY is just giving you the obvious. He was also charged with unlawful taking of a motor vehicle, theft $1500-$25000, and rogue and vagabond. 3 felonies and 1 misdemeanor. He’s currently on probation for second degree assault, he’s just a peach with a criminal record that will keep growing.

    His momma must have taught him that he was entitled to anything he wanted.

  17. Drist on November 9, 2017 at 2:20 pm

    He looks like a Met-head.

    Dont worry,the judge will let him go with no jail time and he will be back doing it to your family next.These judges are worthless.If they would put these criminals away for a few years this would at least slow down.

    I’m no criminal but if I were, I wouldn’t attempt a carjacking without a weapon and I wouldn’t get in the backseat if my intentions were to drive the car that I’m trying to steal. There is something more to this story that’s not being told. Clearly he looks as if he is under some sort of substance that altered his decision making. Thank God that no one in this situation was hurt, including him. Let’s not just read a story and based on the presented information assume that the individual involved is guilty of the crime.
