Four arrested in September death of Frederick County man

Four men, including a Hagerstown father and his two sons, were arrested Saturday in connection with an August bar fight that caused the death of a 26 year-old from Rocky Ridge, state police said.

Arrested were John D. Robey, 52, and his two sons Jonathan L. Robey, 20 and Thomas J. Robey, 22 — all recent residents of Hagerstown. Michael J. "Hank" Grimes, of Woodsboro, was also arrested. Police said all were charged with second degree murder, manslaughter and assault.

All four are being held without bond at the Carroll County Detention Center, police said.

Police were called around 9 p.m. August 28 to a bar at the 6600 block of Middleburg Road in Keymar. When officers arrived the found Meyers to be "unresponsive." He was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center and died four days later of "blunt force trauma," police said.

Police said they believe Myers had been "involved in an altercation" with several at the bar which escalated to "a physical assault."

The three members of the Robey family had lived on Main Street in Woodsboro at the time of the assault, and since moved to Hagerstown, police said.
