4 teens arrested for standing on patrol cars in front of Maryland courthouse

Four teens are facing charges for climbing on top of sheriff's patrol cars in front of the Wicomico County Circuit Courthouse, according to officials.

On April 13 a deputy began an investigation into a reported incident that occurred April 11 in front of the courthouse at 102 Court Street in Salisbury, Md. According to Sheriff Michael A. Lewis, it had been brought to the attention of officials that three people went to the courthouse and thought it would be a "good idea" to pose and take pictures of them standing on top of a marked Sheriff's Office car, according to a news release statement by Lt. Tim Robinson of the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office.

"These photographs found their way to personnel at the Sheriff's Office and it was also noted that the three were gesticulating with one half of the peace sign in the photographs," Lewis said.

The three suspects, identified as 18-year-old Antone Shermal Fooks, a 16-year-old boy and a 15-year-old boy, all of Salisbury, were each charged with malicious destruction of property and climbing on a vehicle with malicious intent.

In a second, and unrelated incident, a female was observed walking on the hood, the roof, and the trunk a Sheriff's Vehicle by the Circuit Court Administrator who promptly photographed her with a cell phone and immediately notified nearby courthouse deputies who pursued her into a secure parking garage occupied by Wicomico Sheriff's Deputies.
