On March 2 at 1:49 a.m., officers were in the 2700 block of Crain Highway in Waldorf when they heard gunshots. As officers approached the area, they observed a vehicle fleeing the area and a male walking away and holding what appeared to be a possible handgun in his waistband. The subject refused to comply with the officers and was subsequently apprehended after striking an officer and resisting arrest. The suspect had a loaded firearm with an extended magazine in his waistband, and officers recovered spent shell casings in the area where they first saw the suspect. There were no reported injuries. Eric Figeroux, age 28, of Waldorf, was arrested and charged with second-degree assault, illegal possession of a firearm due to a previous conviction, and other related charges. Figeroux also had four active arrest warrants for violation of probation. Figeroux is currently being held at the Charles County Detention Center without bond and has a court hearing on March 29. Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact Sgt. Savoy at 301-609-3282 ext. 0288. The investigation is ongoing.
