Adams also is facing three counts of first- and second-degree assault in the hit-and-run crash, Baltimore Police said.

He was turned over to the York County Sheriff’s Office Central Booking Unit to await extradition to Maryland, the release states. 

Three people on bicycles were struck around 9:30 p.m. Aug. 21 in the 1400 block of Eastern Avenue in Baltimore by a vehicle that left the scene without stopping, according to police. 

Police previously said the cyclists were treated for injuries that were not life-threatening.

A warrant was issued for Adams’ arrest on Aug. 27.
