Brown, who has been wanted since June 2, was the subject of a press release seeking the public’s help locating him, which was sent August 31. Brown resisted arrest and continued to struggle with officers until he was taken into custody.

Brown was transported to St. Mary’s Hospital with minor injuries before being released into the custody of the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office.

Following court action in St. Mary’s County, Brown will subsequently be returned to Charles County where he will be served the warrants.
