On March 11, 2019, Deputy Shelko responded to the 41500 block of Fenwick Street in Leonardtown for the reported hit and run vehicle collision.

An investigation determined the victim made contact with Doug Delahay Woodburn, 18, of Leonardtown, in a parking lot.

The victim was standing at the driver’s side window of Woodburn’s vehicle attempting to speak with him when Woodburn backed his vehicle into the victim’s vehicle, causing damage to the victim’s vehicle. Woodburn then fled the scene.

Shortly after the collision, Woodburn was observed operating his vehicle on St. Andrew’s Church Road. Deputies attempted to conduct a vehicle stop however Woodburn accelerated and turned onto a commercial driveway in the 42700 block of St. Andrew’s Church Road. Woodburn continued on at a high rate of speed, crashing through a closed gate, destroying the gate. Woodburn then changed direction and proceeded back onto St. Andrew’s Church Road. A short time later, a citizen reported a vehicle disabled in a ditch on Fairgrounds Road. Deputies responded to the disabled vehicle and recognized it to be Woodburn’s vehicle. Woodburn was observed hiding in the woods and was pursued by deputies on foot.

While deputies were searching for Woodburn, a citizen reported an individual on foot matching Woodburn’s description had attempted to gain access to one of the marked police vehicles on scene. After not being able to access the locked police vehicle, the individual fled the area and ran back into the woods.

Woodburn was ultimately located in the backyard of a residence in the area and was arrested. Woodburn was charged with the following:

  • Attempted Motor Vehicle/Unlawful Taking
  • Malicious Destruction of Property
  • Attempt by Driver to Elude Police in Official Police Vehicle by Failing to Stop
  • Failure to Stop After Accident Involving Damage to Attended Vehicle

    See here, see…Your white privilege won’t get you outta this one buster!

      White privilege is a myth, so obviously it wont get him out of anything.

      • Anonymous on March 14, 2019 at 9:41 am

        White privilege is just a racist term created to divide people by those who want things given to them for doing absolutely nothing to earn them.

        • Historic Event! on March 21, 2019 at 12:56 pm

          Wow – Both of you are correct – and I see no arguments in response as yet from the racist baiters?

          This is a great moment on SoMD Newsnet!

    WTF? At least this one didn’t kill someone in the process of fleeing from the police but regardless, he ought to be locked up just like the other POS who ran from the police.

    • So Typical on March 13, 2019 at 8:31 am

      I believe you mean “racists”, unless you admit there is only one, which is very counter to your “america is the most racist place on the planet” argument.

      Aside from that, go ahead and read the comments, I can assure you they will be just as harsh as the ones from the other story. The only difference is the white folk wont cry racism, AND, get this, they wont defend him and the way he was raised. You’re welcome.

  15. Yeah on March 13, 2019 at 8:07 am

    Why authorities didn’t initiate an high speed chase with this miscreant. Is it because it is lethal and some outcomes are not worth the adrenaline rush that cops get

    • ^ Idiot Alert ^ on March 13, 2019 at 8:33 am

      Because he escaped and they lost him… But dont let the facts get in the way of your implication that the cops only chase the darker skin folks

  19. Jrock on March 13, 2019 at 9:10 am

    He probably was on drugs but they will say he a good boy.this will not be talked about in a few days

    • YourMomZaenus on March 13, 2019 at 10:04 am

      Well, if he was a good boy we’d probably use a verb, rather than “he a good boy.”

  20. Anonymous on March 13, 2019 at 10:56 am

    All the people he could have killed. This turd has shown himself to be no better then the turd that killed that poor innocent woman last week. They need to make an example out of him but just like the other POS he will get multiple slaps on the wrist until he finally does kill someone. Just look at the record of the POS that killed the lady, he was released dozens of times for some serious crimes. Our justice system is a joke and does nothing to protect the innocent public.

    Don’t worry a Republican judge will let him get away with it. There was a similar case in Annapolis and a republican judge didn’t even give the guy a slap on the wrist.

    • Willie on March 14, 2019 at 11:33 am

      What is a “Republican” judge? Judges run non-partisan you idiot. Please do us a favor and put the bong down.

      He wasn’t driving a stolen vehicle containing drugs and illegal weapons. He also didn’t murder an 87 year old woman.

    • Anonymous on March 21, 2019 at 1:06 pm

      That tells you although he has PLENTY to answer for – and he is STUPID, he doesn’t make his outward appearance trashy to run with your boyz. No neck tat, no hood rat attire – yet.

      That what you mean, home-slice?

    • King of Tea Bagging on March 21, 2019 at 8:16 pm

      Not until now. And that is directed towards you ya filthy animal that needs to be neutered and put down. Hmmmm….Are you happy now?

  26. Ricky Herbert on March 15, 2019 at 9:35 am

    You’re right! Not one person has called him an “amimal”, except you. You shouldn’t post comments, while you are being teabagged.
