Police: Assault Charges for Trappe Man Who Drove With Girlfriend on Car's Hood

Posted: Updated:

TRAPPE, Md.- Authorities say a 21-year-old Talbot County man is facing charges after his girlfriend claimed he had deliberately tried to throw her off his car.

According to the Talbot County Sheriff's Office, deputies made contact with the girlfriend, 18-year-old Adraianna Long of Trappe, on Feb. 19 in the area of Ocean Gateway and Tarbutton Mill Road in Trappe. Responding deputies said she was standing outside a car that was stopped in the left lane of Ocean Gateway.

An investigation revealed Long had been arguing with her boyfriend, 21-year-old Connor Coen of Trappe, when she tried to stop him from leaving by jumping on the hood of his car, the sheriff's office said. Long said Coen drove two miles while she held on, according to the sheriff's office. Long claimed Coen slammed the brakes and sped up multiple times in an attempt to throw her off the car, the sheriff's office reported.  

The sheriff's office says Long's only injury was a minor cut on her hand from holding onto the windshield wipers.

Coen was arrested for assault and reckless and negligent driving and released on his own personal recognizance, according to the sheriff's office.
