From MSP Barrack U, Prince Frederick Defendant in Traffic Stop Found Not Guilty By Guy Leonard Staff Writer A construction worker who com- plained earlier this year that he was the victim of police mistreatment during a traffic stop has been found not guilty of three charges against him in Calvert District Court. Adrian A. Hall had claimed in July that police acted aggressively to- wards him when he was pulled over for speeding, but Sheriff Mike Evans defended the actions of his deputies against Hall’s allegations made on social media. Hall, 33, of Washington, D.C. had been charged with hindering, speed- ing and resisting arrest but was ac- quitted of all charges Dec. 4. Hall claimed he was pulled over by Calvert deputies July 10 while com- muting to Cove Point natural gas plant expansion project in Lusby, al- legedly for speeding. Hall claims the more he asked question of officers as to why he was pulled over the more aggressive they became. The alleged aggression started when he was ordered to step out of his car, Hall had alleged after the incident. “I stepped out of my car and walked towards the other officer,” he stated. “I was told to stand in front of the police car. I was still on the phone with my wife as she heard what was going on. “We both spoke about how this situation was ridiculous and how they couldn’t actively search my vehicle.” Evans was quick to respond to the incident once it hit social media. Evans had claimed that Hall was traveling at 76 miles per hour in a 55 mile per hour zone and that the K-9 alert to the smell of narcotics in the vehicle gave deputies probable cause to search the vehicle. Evans stated further that Hall was talking to his wife on the phone even while she had a protective order out against him; deputies said Hall re- sisted arrest by remaining on his phone and interfering with the search of the vehicle.
