On April 7 at 8:02 a.m., officers responded to the 2500 block of Charter Oak Drive in Waldorf for the report of a man at the address who was violating a final protective order. When officers arrived, the suspect, Bryant Michael Thompson, 42, of Waldorf, was on the scene. As officers attempted to place Thompson under arrest, he resisted and spat on officers and bit one officer. Thompson was taken into custody. While being transported to the detention center, Thompson attempted to break out a window of the patrol car. Thompson was charged with violating a final protective order, resisting arrest, assault, and destruction of property. On April 10, a judge ordered Thompson could be released from the Charles County Detention Center if he is able to meet the conditions required for electronic monitoring and stays away from the victim’s residence. Officer VanAuken investigated.
