Few details were immediately available. Baltimore County Police Chief James W. Johnson confirmed the arrest in an interview with The Baltimore Sun. "I was told he became combative and resisted," the chief said.

It was not immediately clear where in Baltimore County the incident occurred, or what time. Johnson said a police report would be provided later today.
