(March 2, 2018) Erin Elizabeth Lynn, 26, of Fallston was arrested for second-degree assault, trespassing, disorderly conduct and obstructing an investigation, after she and Daniel Adam McCleary, 29, of Elkton allegedly refused to leave the scene of a fight at a nightclub near 60th Street Saturday.

McCleary was arrested and charged with trespassing and disorderly conduct,

Ocean City police reported multiple officers went to the scene just before 11:30 p.m. after receiving reports bar staff were fighting with unruly patrons.

According to the report, officers were attending to a pair of combatants the bar staff had restrained when McCleary and Lynn attempted to intervene.

Police said when asked to leave, McCleary refused and claimed to be with the pair being restrained.

When asked to sit on a curb in an adjacent parking lot, police said McCleary insisted that as a student in a criminal justice program he know he could not be asked for ID without probable cause.

While continuing to resist, police said McCleary produced a cell phone and said, “we are going to deal with this the easy way,” and began taping the interaction with law enforcement, at which point he was placed under arrest.

According to police, Lynn, told officers arresting McCleary they “better not touch him.” Police said Lynn interfered and screamed at officers, who eventually arrested her.

Police said bar staff presented video footage showing Lynn shoving a security guard and punching him in the nose. The guard allegedly had to place Lynn in a hold to stop being assaulted.
