On March 3, 2018 Trooper K. Bauer of the Maryland State Police Leonardtown Barracks responded to Courtneyville Road, in Park Hall for the report of an assault with a knife.

While responding to the residence, the emergency communications center stated that the suspect had left the residence in a Gray Kia with a New York registration, but that the victim was still at the residence and that he was bleeding due to a stabbing that had occurred. Upon arrival police made contact with the suspect, Krystal Lee Patton, 31, of no fixed address, who was located in a Gray Kia Optima, and conducted a search of her person for the possible weapon that was used in the assault. The search yielded negative results.

Police asked Patton what was going on and why there was a 9-1-1 call stating that somebody had been stabbed. Patton stated that she did not know anything about a stabbing and was more worried about getting in trouble for driving from the residence to the location where the Trooper made contact with her due to her license being revoked. Patton continued to state that she had no idea about a stabbing. Patton then stated that she was drinking last night and that she had left to take a shower at planet fitness due to the residence not have any power. Patton stated that she had returned to the residence and then got into an altercation with her husband. At that time, Sgt. Raddatz of the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office had responded to the scene.

A search of the vehicle was conducted on the vehicle for the weapon and yielded negative results. Upon entering the residence, the Trooper made contact with a witness, who stated that a male victim had been stabbed and that he was sitting in his bedroom. The Trooper observed blood on the steps of the deck, on the deck, and then on the floor in the entryway of residence. The blood trail led into a bedroom. The Trooper made contact with the victim at the residence, who had his left hand wrapped in a towel, covered in blood. Police observed a laceration on his left hand just above the knuckle of his pointer finger to be about ¼”-1/2″ in length. The laceration was bleeding heavily. At that time, the Lexington Park Rescue Squad had responded to the scene and treated the victim for his injuries. EMS advised McGinnis that he would need to be transported to the hospital for stitches, however, he refused and EMS wrapped his hand to stop the bleeding of the laceration.

The victim stated that he and Patton have had a rough month and that times have been tough. He stated that he had consumed four beers the night before and that Patton was also drinking, and that he did not know how the argument started but that Patton had come home and was immediately upset with him. The victim stated that Patton arrived at the residence and that an argument ensued soon after, and he does not remember what Patton stabbed him with and that he did not even see her stab him.

While Trooper Bauer spoke with McGinnis, Patton was placed under arrest for 2nd degree assault. Due to noncompliance of Patton, Sgt. Raddatz transported her to the St. Mary’s County Detention and Rehabilitation Center for processing.

While transporting Patton, she threatened to burn Sgt. Raddatz’s house down. Upon arrival at the detention center, Sgt. Raddatz attempted to open the back door of his cruiser as Patton kicked the door open causing the door to strike Sgt. Raddatz in his arm. While at the detention center Patton was very uncooperative.

Patton was charged with assault, two counts of assault on a law enforcement officer, assault by body fluid, and threat of arson.

    Well, she will have a fixed address now. Far a day or two before she is released ROR.

    There’s just not enough activities for young people in Park Hall. I can see somebody waking up, realizing they live in Park Hall, then acting out by making threats. I’m surprised they just don’t kill them selves.

      Wow, you sound like such an enabler. You’re a LIBERAL loser no doubt. That’s the stupidest thing I’ve heard in a long time.

        You didn’t pick up on the obvious sarcasm, did you? Hahaha!

      Stop being such a thug, then he won’t bother you. There! Solved your problem, loser.

    What an utterly charming young lady. Assault by body fluid, indeed. Krystal, take some care not to choke on your own vomitus, my dear.

    Sgt. Raddatz should be charged with inciting Violence, since he seemed to be the instigator in these circumstances, since both the victim and supposed assailant asked him to leave and let it go, instead he fomented non-truth and hate, initiating any and all threats coming his way because she only became an assailant after her livelihood was jeopardized, though she should have jeopardized his livelihood in Court.

    Though more often then not a belligerent drunk is not responsible for their actions, as opposed to a sober Police Officer playing JAG, by removing context and common-sense from the equation, senselessly sending another person into the Spiral of the Judicial System under the auspicious of “doing his JOB.” I hope he never has someone “do their Job” when they hear any colorful joke or unnecessary comment come out of his mouth.

      Sorry to burst your bubble but once someone calls 911 they have to investigate. If they arrive and witness a crime was committed they have to intervene, especially if it is an assault/stabbing. Being drunk does not absolve you from being a responsible adult. Her actions are why she is in this predicament. No one forced her to be drunk, no one forced her to assault the victim, and no one forced her to turn into a child while being taken into custody. She is 31 years old, she should know right from wrong by now. Even kindergarteners know that hitting people is wrong. She needs to grow up and take responsibility for her actions.

        No one forced him to be a donkey, he choose to be that way, in particular him hiding behind his badge. That is some great judgement he showed as a Deputy. How long until others report his chronic “choices” of bad judgement. You know it’s only a matter of time before he slides down the slippery slope of violating someone’s personal liberty. Mark my words, at this rate, it won’t be long.

          Umm, they forced him to do his job once called there. Idiot.

          There is nothing in the constitution that says cops have to hold your hand and kiss you on the forehead when you are suspected of doing something illegal. Mark my words, if she continues to walk around with this attitude we will see her on here again.

      SMCSO has always been corrupt. Look at Daniel Alioto, commander of vice narcotics who stole thousands upon thousands and let him go without so much as a peep to the public. They refused to answer and questions or give any comments.

      I agree. Make the cops mind their damn business when someone is assaulted with a knife. What the hell was he thinking?

    • Nick on March 9, 2018 at 11:46 am

      I don’t think you are reading the same article that I read.

      • anonymous on March 12, 2018 at 2:42 am

        Can you read in between the lines, or are you dense? The other victim of alcohol-over use can’t be believed either, he waaaaass





        too Drunk to remember anything, such a great witness he makes.

          I hate waiting for it.

      If you ever get to move out of your parents basement, you may find out how the real world works.

      You should be charged with inciting ignorance. Are you still angry, because you lost your habitat, when the flat tops were razed? Get over it!

        Wait until you have to deal with the biggest douche bag from high school judging you aka Deputy Tattletale, Hall Monitor Boy, playing King Bully to all now.

      But you obviously dropped out in Jr. High. Never to late to go back to school and get an education. Stop being a leech on us taxpayers.

    A fire in Park Hall is not Arson. It’s cleaning of filth
