CENTREVILLE, Md.-Maryland State Police at the Centreville Barracks said that around 12 a.m. on Thursday, police responded to a home on 1200 Roundtop Road in Chestertown for a report of disorderly people on the property. 

Police said 41-year-old Shawn Michael Prince told them that he heard people talking outside of his house. Prince went on to tell police he then heard the people going around to the back of his house. 

Prince then stated that he confronted a person in his back yard who said he needed help getting his car out of a ditch.

Authorities said that Prince told the man he could not help him, but that he could call a tow for him. 

Prince then said that he told the person needing help to not to come any closer to him. He went on to say that the man kept walking closer to him after Prince told him he was armed. That's when police said, Prince told them that the man kept coming closer, so Prince shot a warning shot into the air with his Winchester Model 1300 Ranger 12 gauge shotgun. Prince said, that the man ran off after he fired the warning shot.
 
Police said that while the trooper on the call was responding, he observed that there was a car stuck in a ditch approximately 100 yards up the road from Prince's home. 

Police said the trooper met with one of the occupants of that car, identified as 25-year-old Courtland Quincy Goldsboro.

Authorities said Goldsboro told them he was knocking on doors attempting to get help to get his car out of a ditch. He then stated that he made contact with a man at a house who fired a shotgun in the air. Goldsboro said he immediately dropped to the ground and ran. After consultation with the States Attorney's Office, the trooper arrested Prince and charged him with first degree assault.
 
The State Police urge anyone facing these set of circumstances to simply go inside their home and call 911 for the police to respond and handle these situations.
