(Feb. 15, 2019) A road trip to Ocean City last Saturday ended in the arrest of a 25-year-old woman, who was charged with two counts of second-degree assault and disorderly conduct following a domestic dispute.

Lakwanda Chanelle Williams, of Washington, D.C., also was charged with failure to obey a reasonable and lawful order, according to an arrest report from the District Court of Maryland for Worcester County.

Police were called to a domestic dispute at a midtown hotel around 10:33 p.m. on Feb. 9 and saw Williams walking out of the hotel.

A man said he’d met Williams a few days ago, and when she found out he was planning a trip to Ocean City, she asked if he could give her a ride, according to the report. He agreed, but when they got to the resort town, she told him she couldn’t get in touch with her friends and asked if she could stay with him.

He said Williams allegedly became intoxicated after consuming alcoholic beverages and he went down to the front desk to see if he could stay in another room, according to the report. 

The man said Williams “began to yell at him and act erratically” after she came downstairs, according to the report. Williams then went into the attached restaurant and berated an employee.

The report said Williams made comments to the worker including “you should be a stripper, get naked for me.”

The male employee didn’t respond to her remarks, according to the report. Williams then allegedly threw a drink at him. A female employee, who said she witnessed the incident, told Williams to leave.

The female employee and Williams engaged in some “back and forth,” but Williams then allegedly “flicked” the female employee’s nose, and pushed her, according to the report. She escorted Williams outside prior to police arrival. 

The desk staff said they wanted to issue a trespass warning, according to the report. The hotel’s manager told Williams she was not welcome in the hotel and couldn’t return to the property.

Willliams then shouted profanities, and police said she was screaming loudly, according to the report.

Following her arrest, Williams was released on her own recognizance, according to the Maryland District Court Case Search website.

Williams’ next court appearance is scheduled for 9 a.m. on March 13 in courtroom 1 of the Worcester District Court on 65th Street in Ocean City.
