Annapolis Police have arrested a man they say ran over another man and drove with the victim stuck to the hood of his car in a road rage incident Tuesday.
It happened at around 2:30 in the morning in the area of Severn Avenue and Warren Drive.
The victim was filling a newspaper dispenser when he was approached by the suspect, later identified as Daniel Kenneth Burkhard of Annapolis. Burkhard got out of his car and began verbally assaulting the victim. He tried to start a fight and when the victim refused, he became more angry. That's when police say he got back into his car and ran over the victim, forcing him onto the hood of his car. Burkhard drove four blocks with the victim clinging to his hood.
Police were later able to locate Burkhard's white Mitsubishi in the 700-block of Warren Driver. He was taken into police custody and charged with attempted first-degree murder, first-degree assault, second-degree assault, and reckless endangerment among other charges.
The incident remains under investigation.
