LAUREL, Del.- Delaware State Police have arrested a Seaford man accused of assaulting a trooper attempting to serve a warrant on him.

Police said that shortly after 3 p.m. Thursday, members of the Sussex Governor’s Task Force responded to a home in the 11000 block of Taylor Mill Road in Laurel. They were there to arrest 42-year-old Burton F. Carmean, of Seaford, who was wanted for a violation of probation issued by the Sussex County Court of Common Pleas and also for a failure to appear capias issued by the Kent County Court of Common Pleas.

Upon arrival, Carmean was initially seen outside and proceeded to run back inside the home.  Detectives eventually located Carmean hiding in a bedroom. Police said Carmean continued to resist arrest and proceeded to charge at a trooper. Carmean then struck the trooper and was subsequently taken into custody, according to police. The trooper reportedly sustained minor injury and did not require medical attention.

Carmean was transported back to Troop 4 where he was charged with:

  • Second-degree assault - injure a law enforcement officer
  • Resisting Arrest with Force or Violence that Injures Law Enforcement Officer
  • Menacing

Carmean was arraigned before the Justice of the Peace Court and committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution on $10,200 cash only bond.
