Hampstead man charged with assault after allegedly throwing phone at woman, striking trooper

A Hampstead man was arrested Sunday after he allegedly threw an object at a woman and struck a state trooper.

Michael Robert Boone, 31, of the 3500 block of Hampstead Mexico Road, was charged with second-degree assault, second-degree assault of a law enforcement officer, failure to obey a reasonable/lawful order and resisting arrest. He was released on $2,500 bail according to electronic court records.

According to the statement of probable cause, Maryland State Police troopers responded to a Hampstead residence Saturday, Aug. 11, for a reported assault and separated two individuals.

A woman told police Boone had thrown a cellphone at the back of her head, striking her, according to the statement.

A trooper then spoke to Boone, who appeared to be intoxicated and said he had not thrown a phone, according to the statement.

The two parties remained separated when EMS arrived to examine the woman. A trooper said that Boone moved toward the area and a trooper grabbed him by the arm. Boone then slapped at the trooper’s arm and the trooper took him to the ground where he resisted placing his hands behind his back, according to the statement.

Boone had not responded to a call for comment as of 7:45 p.m. Monday. A court date is scheduled for Oct. 24.
