At approximately 9:30 a.m., Deputy First Class Greg Morton was on scene investigating a minor traffic accident involving a Frederick County Government vehicle in the 1400 block of Key Parkway in Frederick. While in his marked police vehicle completing the accident report, Reyes-Reyes started banging on the back driver’s side window. When Dfc. Morton turned to look in the direction of the disturbance, Reyes-Reyes reached through the front driver’s side window, which was half way down, and struck Dfc. Morton in the face and neck with his fist. Dfc. Morton pushed Reyes-Reyes away from his vehicle with the vehicle door, and verbally commanded him to get on the ground, while pointing his Taser at him. Dfc. Morton placed Reyes-Reyes under arrest in handcuffs, but when Reyes-Reyes was stood up he began kicking Dfc. Morton in an attempt to get away. Dfc. Morton regained control of Reyes-Reyes and waited on the arrival of assisting deputies and Emergency Medical Services (EMS).

Reyes-Reyes was charged with second-degree assault on a police officer, two counts of second-degree assault, and resisting arrest. Other charges included disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace, obstructing and hindering, rogue and vagabond, and two counts of disorderly intoxication.
