Hanover man arrested after drawing knife on Anne Arundel County sheriff’s deputy serving warrant, police say

A Hanover man was arrested and charged with attempted first and second-degree murder after confronting an Anne Arundel Count Sheriff’s Office deputy with a knife when the deputy attempted to serve a warrant for second-degree assault. The man was tased before taken into custody.

Deputies arrived at the family home of Shane Sebastian Peart, 22, around 7 p.m. April 28 to serve an arrest warrant. A family member opened Peart’s bedroom door for deputies and Peart became upset and agitated, yelling at the deputies and his family, according to the sheriff’s office.

The sheriff’s office said the deputies attempted to calm Peart and deescalate the situation when they reopened his bedroom door but Peart picked up a sheathed knife and moved toward the deputies while struggling to removing the knife. Sgt. Matthew Beall, a seven-year veteran, tased Peart after he failed to follow commands to stop. Another deputy disarmed Peart after he was tased and took him into custody after a short struggle.

Peart was transported to Baltimore Washington Medical Center for treatment of Taser exposure, per department policy. No other injuries were reported. Peart was charged with attempted murder, first and second-degree assault, resisting arrest and failure to follow a lawful order. He is being held without bond. An Annapolis public defender did not immediately return a request for comment.
