Man charged in Ocean City hit-and-run crash

OCEAN CITY, MD – (AP) State Police say a Berlin man was arrested and charged after a hit-and-run crash in Ocean City.

Police responded to Wicomico Street and Baltimore Avenue on Saturday, looking for the driver of a vehicle involved in a hit-and-run crash earlier in the evening at the Harborside Restaurant on Harbor Road.

There they found 33-year-old Michael Strickland, the driver of the suspect vehicle. Strickland told police that he was driving the car involved in the crash, but a short while later Strickland became extremely belligerent and verbally abusive.

Police say Strickland was charged in the crash and with resisting arrest.
