Man Charged in Shootout With Md. Cops Free on Bond


WASHINGTON (AP) - A District of Columbia man accused in a shootout with Montgomery County police officers has been released on bond despite facing charges that include assault with intent to kill.

Online court records show Ramad Speight was released last week by a D.C. Superior Court judge under specific conditions.

He was arrested in March following an early-morning shootout with police officers that occurred in D.C., near the Montgomery County border. One of the officers was shot in the hand.

Bill Miller, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's office, said Wednesday that prosecutors opposed the request and argued that Speight was a threat to the community. Speight's public defender had no immediate comment. Capt. Paul Starks, a Montgomery County police spokesman, had no immediate comment.
