(Jan. 4, 2019) Ocean City resident Nathaniel Irving Schneider, 29, was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting and interfering with arrest, according to an arrest report from the District Court of Maryland for Worcester County.
Police were investigating an assault around 4:51 a.m. at an apartment in the 14th Street area, when an officer came in contact with an assault suspect, later identified as Schneider, according to the report. He had been released by police but returned to the scene and was cursing at officers. “I need to stand up for myself,” Schneider said.
Schneider waived his arms and fists as headed south on Philadelphia Avenue, according to the report.
Police later were conducting a welfare check for a man and woman screaming in the 12th Street area, when Schneider reappeared and approached officers and stood next to the patrol vehicle, according to the report.
An officer told Schneider to move away from the vehicle, and he sprinted toward 12th Street, police said.
Police were on North Division Street when they again saw Schneider, who allegedly was making strange statements. When the officer told Schneider to lower his voice, go home and go to sleep, Schneider began yelling profanities.
After being told again to lower his voice and leave the area, Schneider headed up ramp to the Route 50 Bridge, where he allegedly tried to fight another pedestrian. Police detained and arrested Schneider, who, according to police, repeatedly threatened to bite them.
