HURLOCK, Md.- Maryland State Police have arrested a Hurlock man after he swept through a stop sign and nearly collided with a trooper's patrol vehicle.

Police say on Tuesday, October 3, 2017, a trooper was traveling to his assignment when 45-year-old Joe Louis Ancrum failed to stop at the intersection of Railroad Avenue and Route 307. According to the trooper, Ancrum came within inches of colliding with his vehicle.
