WALDORF, Md. — The Charles County Sheriff’s Office successfully apprehended Anthony Kavon Brown, 23, of Waldorf, on Sunday, September 12, at a business in St. Mary’s County. Brown, who had been wanted since June 2, faced four active warrants, including charges for violating a protective order, failure to appear in court for second-degree assault, violation of probation from an armed robbery and assault, and illegal possession of a firearm.
The arrest occurred at 10:58 a.m. when the Charles County Sheriff’s Office Warrant Unit members attempted to detain Brown. During the arrest, Brown resisted and struggled with officers, causing minor injuries to him and two Charles County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) members. All involved were transported to St. Mary’s Hospital for treatment before Brown was released into the custody of the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office.
Both CCSO officers involved in the arrest were treated for their injuries and are in stable condition. A video related to the arrest has surfaced on social media. In line with agency policy, the CCSO announced they would review the incident, a standard procedure in all cases involving the use of force.
Once legal proceedings are complete in St. Mary’s County, Brown will be transferred back to Charles County to be served with the outstanding warrants.
