Ryan Dorm has been in the Prince George's County Jail since February 3 when he was arrested for allegedly assaulting a plain-clothes police officer. On Thursday, he was released, and on Friday, a spokesman for the prosecutor's office said all remaining charges against the 20-year-old man were being dropped.
At first, officers accused Dorm of attempting to grab an officer's weapon, which discharged. But security video, according to prosecutors, shows that the handgun fired when Dorm was struck over the head with the weapon. Luckily, no one was struck by the bullet.
Dorm says he and a friend decided on the evening of Friday, February 3, to go get drinks and chips from the convenience store at the "Lowest Price" gas station on Rhode Island Avenue in Brentwood, Md. Dorm's friend was wearing a ski mask on that cold night.
A pair of plain-clothes Prince George's County Police officers thought the pair looked suspicious and entered the store, focusing on the young man in the ski mask.
Dorm walked out of the store, but was accosted a couple of blocks away on Perry Street. The prosecutor's office says video surveillance from a business on Perry Street shows that a gun carried by one of the plain-clothes policeman discharged as the officer hit Ryan over the head with the weapon.
