On July 9, 2012, at approximately 10:15 p.m., Ocean City Police were in the area of 28th Street and Coastal Highway when they witnessed a truck driving on its rims.  At the same time, Ocean City Police communications received numerous calls regarding a vehicle matching the description of the truck involved in several traffic collisions from 20th Street to 28th Street.

The driver of the vehicle, who was stopped by police on Robin Drive, was identified as Michael Keith Hall, 43, of Greenwood, DE.  Hall, who exited the vehicle at the time of the stop, admitted to police he was under the influence of alcohol.

While speaking with Hall, officers learned that he had an outstanding warrant for his arrest through the state of Delaware. In addition, during the conversation, Hall made several threats, stating that he would “kill” and “snipe” police.  Police searched Hall’s vehicle and located a rifle, a pistol holster with blanks, binoculars, a spotting scope and several knives.

Hall was arrested and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, driving while impaired by alcohol and negligent driving.  In addition, over 60 traffic citations were issued to Hall in reference to failing to stop after an accident, failure to return to and remain at the scene of accident, reckless driving and speeding.

At the time of this release, Hall was being held on a $25,000 bond after an initial appearance in front of an Ocean City District Court Commissioner.
