Updated: Seven Arrests Made After Large Fight in Ocean City

Posted: Updated:

OCEAN CITY, Md.- More details are emerging about a large fight in Ocean City that led to seven arrests over the weekend.

According to the Ocean City Police Department, officers were called to the area of Worcester Street and the Boardwalk around 11:40 p.m. Saturday for a report of a fight involving two groups of people.

When police arrived, they said the individuals were yelling obscenities and enticing each other to fight. Officers attempted to arrest the two main instigators, but they said both resisted. According to police, several members of the groups then became uncooperative, leading officers to use tasers in order to get them to comply and to disperse the crowd.

The eight arrests made that night are as follows:

  • Kameron J. Christopher, 18, of Delmar, Del.: Disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, second-degree assault
  • Allen D. J. Nelson, 19, of Salisbury: Resisting arrest, obstructing and hindering
  • Luis A. Pirela Linares, 20, of Salisbury: Obstructing and hindering, resisting arrest
  • Aaron G. Waples, 19, of Berlin: Disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, second-degree escape
  • Jakhai N. Woodard, 18, of Berlin: Second-degree assault (2 counts), resisting arrest, disorderly conduct
  • A 16-year-old male from Delmar, Del.: Second-degree assault, disturbing peace/hindering passage
  • A 15-year-old male from Snow Hill: Disorderly conduct

Ocean City resident Maxim Kirschner witnessed the fight.

"What I saw was everyone gathering up to see the fight," he said. 

According to Ocean City police spokesperson Lindsey Richards, the crowd did play a big role in inciting the violence.

"Well, it is June here in Ocean City and a lot of people know that a lot of high school seniors will come here so it's definitely a younger crowd that's on our boardwalk in June at night time," she said. "So this crowd of 100 or plus people was definitely a younger crowd."

Joe Parillo owns OC Boardwalk Segway near the scene of the fight and said a fight this large does not surprise him.

"It's gotten out of hand, it's atrocious, the behavior, the antics up on the boardwalk, the fighting, the loud music in the middle of the day," he said. "There's altercations all the time up on the boardwalk."

Meanwhile, Kirschner said it got blown out of proportion.

" I've seen fights but it happens then it goes away," he said. "Once in a while there will probably be a fight."

Police say the 15- and 16-year-old were released to their parents, while the other five people were seen by a Maryland District Court Commissioner. Christopher and Woodard were transferred to the Worcester County Jail on $5,000 bond.

Waples was transferred to the Worcester County Jail and held without bond. Nelson and Pirela Linares were released on personal recognizance.
