Four Arrested After Posing On Luxury Vehicle

Four Arrested After Posing On Luxury Vehicle

WEST OCEAN CITY — A group of knuckleheads posing for pictures on and around an expensive vehicle in a parking lot last weekend resulted in four arrests, including one for hit-and-run and another for drugs.

Shortly before midnight last Friday, Worcester County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the Applebee’s in West Ocean City for a report of several people standing on top of a vehicle that did not belong to them while taking pictures. Upon arrival, deputies met with the owner of the vehicle, a 2013 Dodge Viper valued at around $100,000. The victim told police a witness had seen several people on top of his car getting their picture taken.

Several other witnesses had detained two of the suspects who had attempted to flee the scene. Those two suspects, identified as Sean Digiacoma and Cody Coverdale, were arrested and later released on criminal citations for disorderly conduct. However, at least two other suspects charged with much more serious crimes.

The investigation revealed other suspects had attempted to flee the scene in their own vehicles. One of the suspected vehicles, a Mitsubishi Eclipse, struck another parked car in the parking lot while in the process of attempting to flee the scene. The driver was detained and identified as Sam Fazio, 18, of Lewes, Del. The investigating deputy detected an odor of alcoholic beverage coming from Fazio and noted his speech was slurred and his steps were unsteady.

Fazio agreed to a battery of field sobriety tests, which he did not complete to the deputies’ satisfaction. He was arrested and charged with driving under the influence and driving while impaired.

Yet another one of the suspects attempted to flee the scene when police arrived and was detained by the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office. While speaking with the driver, identified as Shayne Glasgow, 21, of Lewes, the deputy detected an odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle. A search of the vehicle turned up over 470 grams of marijuana. Also located inside the vehicle were suspected cocaine, psilocybin mushrooms and various controlled narcotic medications.

In addition, deputies seized well over $5,000 in cash. Glasgow was arrested and charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana, cocaine, psilocybin and prescription medications. He was taken before a District Court Commissioner and was ordered to be held on a $125,000 bond.
