HURLOCK, Md.- The principal of North Dorchester Middle School in Hurlock has been suspended from the job following his weekend arrest on assault and related charges in connection with a domestic incident. 

Maryland online court records show Hurlock police arrested 55-year-old Vaughn D. Evans Sr. Sunday afternoon at his home in Hurlock. He is charged with second-degree assault and false imprisonment. 

According to charging documents, Evans and his wife got into an argument and when she tried to call 9-1-1, he grabbed her cellphone and refused to let her out of a bathroom despite her repeated pleas. While this was happening, Evans' wife shouted to her son to call 9-1-1, court records show. According to charging documents, Evans then walked into a bedroom where his wife claimed he had locked himself in with a rifle. 

In addition to Hurlock police, Dorchester County sheriff's deputies and Maryland State Police responded to the scene and requested Evans to come out of the home, court records show. Court documents state that after Evans failed to respond after several attempts to have him come out, the Dorchester County SWAT team responded to the scene. According to charging documents, it was at that point when Evans emerged from the home unarmed and was taken into custody. He claimed he had not heard anyone calling for him because he was taking a bath and was watching football and added that he has a hard time hearing in his left ear, court records state. 

Following his arrest on the aforementioned charges, Evans was released on $5,500 bond. 

Dorchester County Superintendent of Schools Dr. Henry Wagner said Evans has been suspended with pay pending the outcome of the investigation, which is standard procedure. 

According to court records, Evans has been issued a temporary peace order to stay away from the school and his home. He has a hearing scheduled Tuesday on that peace order.

    Locals in Salisbury React To Trump's National Emergency

    President Donald Trump declared a national emergency Friday after congress refused to completely fund his wall at the  U.S.-Mexico border. Congress approved a spending deal to avoid a shutdown, which did not include the $5.7 billion President Trump requested in border wall funding.

    Salisbury University Political Science Chair Adam Hoffman says the move may result in severe push back from democratic congressional leaders, and may even result in legal action.
