Md. State Trooper Arrested After Abduction
TOWSON, Md. (WJZ)
Baltimore County Police have arrested a Maryland State trooper for allegedly abducting a man and driving while intoxicated.
What happened at 3 a.m. Saturday has cost a Maryland state trooper his job.
Kelly McPherson reports it happened exactly one year after he graduated from the state police academy.
Police say off-duty state trooper Bruce Wrzosek, 22, pulled up to a Towson drive-thru and ordered up trouble.
Baltimore County Police say they were called to Taco Bell by employees, who said they were being disturbed by a drunken trooper turning on his siren and trying to pull people over in the drive-thru lane.
"When our first officer got there, the trooper indicated that he was OK. But the officer didn't suspect that things were OK. Actually, he smelled an odor of alcohol," said Corporal Mike Hill, spokesperson for Baltimore County Police.
Before police got there, Wrzosek had thrown a 20-year-old man into the front seat of his cruiser. That man said while in the drive-thru, the trooper yelled, "Get the [expletive] out of the way." When he drove off from county police he said, "They can't do [expletive] to me."
County police chased the trooper into a residential area to Tilmont Avenue. The witness inside the trooper car told police it felt like they were going 95 miles per hour during the chase.
In the trooper's neighborhood, he failed the heel-to-toe sobriety test. During the test Wrzosek said, "That's great, I'm drunk."
Then before finishing he said, "I'm done, lock me up."
The county's investigation showed there was no reason for Wrzosek to force the 20-year-old man into his car at the restaurant's parking lot. The trooper is charged with DUI, false imprisonment and eluding police.
State police spokesman Greg Shipley says Wrzosek has been fired. During the incident, police say Wrzosek was dressed in plain-clothes but was driving his police car.
The trooper was still within his two-year probationary period, so his firing was swift.
"This type of behavior is not part of the Maryland State Police and is in no way condoned. This is completely inappropriate for anyone who wears this uniform," said Greg Shipley, Maryland State Police spokesperson.
Wrzosek is in the Baltimore County jail on $500,000 bond.
one career kissed away with a life long millstone added.....
Nice to see the MD State Patrol reacted appropiately to totally inappropriate behaviour.
A nice change to some of the recent whitewash jobs.

There was once a fellow in Northern Ontario who was always in trouble with the law. Among his exploits, he had apartment buildings and jumpered the meters. He actually managed to take about 5% of the town's power. They commissioned a study to determine why they were getting abnormal line losses. They actually were not getting any at all. Just billing losses.
Part of this fellow's defense was to always have a psychiatrist and plead being unbalanced.
Anyway, he eventually got pulled over for drunk driving and had his license suspended. Now at that time, his psychiatrist was a woman from Northern Quebec. He was not going to be stopped from driving, so here is what he did:
1. He got his psychiatrist pregnant
2. He did the honourable thing and married her ... In Quebec.
3. When he did that, he legally took her name and had all of his identification changed over.
4. Then he did the driver's license test in Quebec and got a Quebec drivers license ... In his new name.
5. Then he went back to Ontario.
Of course it was a small town, and the police saw him driving around and stopped him to charge him with driving without a licence.
His response: I am sorry officer, I my name is not "XXX" from the town "YYY" in Ontario, but rather my name is "AAA" from the Town "BBB" in Quebec, and here is my identification and you can F*** right off.
Toronto man, 33, facing charges for trying to open door midflight
Jan 02, 2009 04:30 AM
Peel Regional Police last night laid charges against a Toronto man who terrified fellow airline passengers by trying to open a door midflight over the Dominican Republic.
Peel investigators flew to Punta Cana, where the plane made an unscheduled stop, and charged Adrian Worrell, 33, of Toronto with endangering the safety of an aircraft in flight, mischief endangering life and several assaults, a police spokesperson said.
Police were expected to return with the prisoner last night, he said.
The man is charged in connection with events on Skyservice Airlines flight 828, which originated Tuesday in Grenada and stopped in Barbados, bringing the passenger list to 202. It reached Toronto one day late on New Year's Eve because of the emergency.
Problems started with an argument over legroom, witnesses said. The man began hitting the fully reclined seat in front of him, after the plane had reached cruising altitude.
"I heard a loud banging," passenger Beresford Moseley of Barbados, seated five rows ahead of the disturbance, recounted after arriving at Toronto's Pearson airport.
"The flight attendant told him to stop," said Shery Henry of Toronto, who also turned around to look. "All of a sudden he got up. He started running up the aisle, then he went from side to side trying to open the emergency exit doors.
"He tried both," Henry recalled. "He said, `God sent me. I'm supposed to kill myself and take you with me.' I started screaming and crying."
A flight attendant called for help. Six to eight men tackled the man, the witnesses said.
Two male flight attendants and the passengers tied him with his own belt and with straps used to secure babies.
"He said, `I like the pain. Give me more pain,'" Henry recalled.
"A flight attendant told me and others, `If he gets away from them, don't let him get to the flight deck,'" Moseley said. "We got to tackle him next."
But it was over. The man was immobilized.
Half an hour later, the plane made an unscheduled landing at the eastern tip of Dominican Republic in Punta Cana.
"The medics met him at the front door with a syringe," Moseley said. "Then they took him off the plane."
A Skyservice spokesperson said the door was never at risk of opening and the man was taken into custody.
I would NOT want to have been on that plane. Even tho I know the doors were safe - a crazy man loose on a tightly packed aircraft is a nightmare.
'Nother one that has screwed up his life - tho sounds like he was well prepped to be locked up anyways.

This is the one that amazes me. The boingboing link rounds up the assorted details/links. Young girl standing outside her home arrested by plainclothes Galveston police in a prostitution sting... and then it gets crazy.
Why don't I ever get to work at places like these??
