(Sept. 21, 2018) An intoxicated man accused of trying to break down the door of a home on Dolphin Street in Ocean City was arrested Thursday night.
Aaron Michael Dill, 38, of York, Pennsylvania, was charged with disorderly intoxication and malicious destruction of property, according to an arrest report from Worcester County District Court.
Police responded around 9 p.m. on Sept. 13 in reference to a breaking and entering in progress.
Prior to the arrival of police, the homeowner told his wife to call 911 and take their children to another room, the report said. The homeowner allegedly confronted the man, later identified as Dill, and asked what he was doing.
“Trying to [kick] the door in,” Dill said.
When police arrived, they reported seeing the homeowner holding Dill at gunpoint. Dill was seen outside, licking the window of the home, police said.
Police told the homeowner to put the gun down and ordered Dill to “get on the ground!” Both complied.
Dill told police he was directed to the residence by a friend – but could not provide his or her description – and had no knowledge of where he was or who the homeowners were, the report said.
Dill admitted he was intoxicated and police said they smelled alcohol and witnessed Dill’s slurred speech and glassy, bloodshot eyes. The report did not specify whether he was tested for alcohol or other substances.
When speaking with Dill, an officer said he noticed Dill’s pants become wet and could smell urine and fecal matter, according to the report. The homeowner said he did not know Dill and Dill never entered the home.
There was an estimated $30 damage from a tear in the rear screen door, the report said.
Dill was arrested and later released on his own recognizance. His next court appearance is scheduled at 9 a.m. on Oct. 15 in courtroom one of the Worcester County District Court in Ocean City.
