A Maryland man who allegedly resisted arrest in Shrewsbury last month will face charges in York County Court of Common Pleas.
Tyler Emory Dawson, 22, of Fairview Road in Gwynn Oak, Md., waived his right to a preliminary hearing for charges stemming from a March 29 scuffle with police in the Chick-Fil-A parking lot at 14665 Mount Airy Road.
Southern Regional Police said Dawson punched a woman in the face as they and her young son were in a car parked in the lot, then allegedly assaulted a police officer who responded to the scene after a 911 hang-up call.
Officers said Dawson's car was blocking the exit of the parking lot, and a woman with a bloodied face got out of the car and threw a bag of suspected marijuana at officers.
Dawson also got out of the car and confronted the woman, then allegedly resisted arrest when officers attempted to take him into custody, police said.
Chief Jim Boddington said one of the officers received minor injuries during the arrest, for which officers had to use a stun gun to subdue Dawson.
Dawson is charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, child endangerment and possession of a small amount of marijuana, police said. He is free on $5,000 bail.
