An Upper Marlboro, Md., teen was arrested after he became aggressive with authorities while being evaluated for a possible alcohol overdose in a Shenandoah University dormitory room on Saturday.

Daniel Mayes, 18, was charged with underage possession of alcohol, assault on law enforcement, obstruction of justice, and attempted property damage, a press release from the Winchester Police Department states.

Mayes was “extremely intoxicated” and was being evaluated by Winchester Fire and Rescue officials when police arrived at the dorms at 800 Millwood Avenue, the release states. He then became “aggressive” with the medics, and, when Officer Noland intervened, Mayes struck the officer on the chin, jumped at him, and grabbed his neck.

Noland sustained minor scratches and lacerations to his neck in the incident, the release states. Mayes was not appeared.

A jail official on Sunday night said Mayes was no longer being held there and appeared to have made bond.

It’s unclear is Mayes is a student at SU.
