Suspect arrested after pointing a handgun at another driver.
On 11-04-12 at approximately 0754 hrs. officers of the Frederick Police Department responded to an apparent “Road Rage” incident in the area W. Patrick St. and Rt. #15. The victim told officers he was traveling on Taney Ave. toward W. 7th Street when the suspect (Hurley) drove up behind him and began to blow the horn. Hurley then drove into the opposing lane of traffic, pulled next to him and pointed a handgun at him. The victim immediately slammed on the brakes to let the suspect go by. The victim then began to follow the suspect’s vehicle while calling the police on his cell phone. Off. Stephanie Sparks located Hurley’s vehicle on W. Patrick St. near Rt. #15 and initiated a traffic stop. The victim who was also present at the traffic stop positively identified Hurley as the person pointed the firearm at him. Hurley was taken into custody without further incident and transported to central booking for processing. Further investigation into the incident allowed officers to locate the handgun used in the incident. Hurley had dropped the gun off at a relative’s house prior to the traffic stop. It was determined that the gun was a “look alike” revolver that only fired pellets.
The suspect is further identified as Quinn Thomas Hurley, DOB 03-21-87, of the 100 blk. of Midsummer Dr., Frederick, MD.
Hurley was charged with the following charges:
First Degree Assault
Second Degree Assault
After an initial appearance before the District Court Commissioner Hurley was held on a $10,000 bond.
