THE BALTIMORE SUN

An actor from the "Homicide" television series was arrested yesterday morning in the alleged firing of two shots from a .45-caliber Derringer pistol into the air during a parking dispute with a neighbor in Southeast Baltimore, city police said.

Max Perlich, 28, who plays a crime videographer in the NBC show, was being held last night at the Central Booking and Intake Center pending a bail hearing on charges of handgun violations, discharging a firearm within city limits, assault by pointing a firearm and possession of marijuana, police said.

Ragina L. Cooper, a city police spokeswoman, said "some kind of ongoing dispute with a neighbor" came to a head yesterday about 8 a.m. when Perlich pulled a gun outside his home in the 900 block of S. Kenwood Ave.

Police went to the neighborhood later in the morning, seized the pistol and arrested Perlich.

Also seized was a rifle Perlich kept in the house and a small amount of marijuana, Cooper said.

In the "Homicide" show, Perlich plays J.H. Brodie, a young free-lance cameraman hired to tape crime scenes.

He has been on the show since 1995.
