BB gun 

Police arrested Scott William Berry, 19, of Ocean City, after he was accused of breaking a glass sliding door on a 57th Street apartment last Tuesday, Oct. 29. 

Police responded to a property damage call Tuesday evening around 7:31 p.m. 

There, an officer reported that the damage had most likely been caused by a small projectile, likely that of a BB gun. 

As police inspected the perimeter of the residence for more evidence, popping sounds could be heard coming from the western half of the street, the police report said.

The suspect told police that it was a BB gun, and that he and his friend had been shooting the guns at a trashcan in the back of the apartment complex. 

Berry was arrested, and faces a charge for possessing a gun replica. 

Assault

Burt Aaron Foskey, 40, of Ocean City faces multiple charges after allegedly resisting arrest last Saturday, Nov. 2. 

Around 7:25 p.m., Ocean City police received a call from a father concerned about the welfare of his daughter and grandchildren, after he had received multiple text messages from his daughter.

Police reported that they arrived at a 14th Street property, and reported hearing a woman scream “Stop.”

An officer knocked on the door, and the victim opened it and yelled, “Get him,” according to the police report. 

Officers grabbed and detained Foskey. 

Throughout the arrest, police said Foskey was combative and repeatedly screamed racial expletives and at one point threatened to kill an officer. 

During an investigation, the victim told police that she and Foskey had been arguing and Foskey grabbed her by the hair and jerked her neck back. 

She told police that she was afraid of Foskey because of his self-admitted ties to Dead Man Incorporated, a notorious prison and street gang active in Maryland.

Police reported that Foskey’s tattoos were consistent with the victim’s statement about Foskey’s gang affiliation. 

In addition to the assault, the victim and her daughters told police that Foskey had stolen a bicycle, roughly valued at $319, a few days earlier.

Foskey faces charges of disorderly conduct, second-degree assault, failure to obey a lawful order and theft.
