Frederick City Police

A Frederick woman stands accused of striking two men with her vehicle on purpose after arguing with one man’s wife before the incident, police allege.

Charleqwa Ruth Burton, 27, of the 1000 block of Redfield Court, faces two counts each of first- and second-degree assault, online court records show. She was arrested May 20 and is being held without bail.

The Frederick Police Department responded April 29 just before noon to the 1000 block of Key Parkway for a hit-and-run, police wrote in charging documents. One man was cut and bleeding, with bone in his legs exposed, police said. The other man vomited. Both were taken to a local hospital. One victim alleged the driver of a white Jeep “hit the gas” when it approached them.

Police learned through investigation one of the men’s wives argued and physically fought with Burton the night before, resulting in Burton being hospitalized, charging documents state. The wife did not have charges filed against her in Frederick Court as of Tuesday related to the alleged fight.

Police reportedly obtained surveillance footage of the hit-and-run, showing the driver did not stop to render aid to the injured men. The driver was later identified by police as Burton.

Burton attorney’s could not be reached for comment immediately Tuesday afternoon. She has a preliminary hearing set for June 17.

You see CD, I wasn't interested in that person's opinion and so I stated that if I wanted it I would give it to them. It was intended as an insult. If you need further help, ask Bosco. He's always there for mutual reassurance I notice.

C.D.Reid

Sure jth, if you say so... [lol][lol][lol]

jth7100

CD, look up and watch my comment go by.

jth7100

Maybe he won't.[lol][lol][lol]

shiftless88

you really need to learn how to post in a string like everyone else. Otherwise your comments in response to someone else, when we have no idea who, make no sense. Or maybe your posts make no sense anyway?

bosco

I'd go with the latter, shiftless. [lol][wink]

C.D.Reid

[thumbup][thumbup][lol][lol][lol]

jth7100

Okay, this is for you shiftless, when I want your opinion, I'll give it to you. Bosco knew my comment was aimed at him. If you're his representative, in the future, I'll put c/o SFB.

bosco

How do you know that I knew your comment, which made no sense in and of itself, was in reply to me when it was posted as new comment.

While you are here, tell us what a White name sounds like and what a Black name sounds like.

C.D.Reid

What gets me, bosco, is that the ones who love to call you and me racists are the ones who have their comments deleted for being of a racist nature. [lol]

C.D.Reid

So, jth, when you want Shift's opinion, you'll give it to him? Okkkkkkkkk..........

Bosco and CD, Maybe you know this, but if you didn't go out of your way to say things that sound racist or otherwise offensive, then people would probably not think of you as racist and offensive and would feel less of a need to react to what they perceive to be racism or otherwise offensive speech. In other words, would it hurt you so much to behave?

bosco is the SUPER TROLL of the FNPOF. His comments are fabricated to elicit the maximum outrage of the Left. And the BTT(BullyTagTeam) think he is telling the truth and join in to the Party. It’s a strange hobby, but bosco has dedicated the last 6 years (at least) of his life to it. Now he has said his Grandfather was present at the Tulsa Massacre on May 31, 1921 and was attacked by a White man with a torch, he didn’t mention a pitchfork, which caused him to lose an eye. You think that’s not TROLLING?? And bosco is damm good at it, the best I’ve come across. More power to him.

bosco

FIDO, oh FIDO. You said " Now he has said his Grandfather was present at the Tulsa Massacre on May 31, 1921 and was attacked by a White man with a torch, he didn’t mention a pitchfork, which caused him to lose an eye:

I don't recall ever saying he lost an eye with a pitchfork, so you'll need to show a some proof of your claim. Good luck. You and awt can work on your reading and comprehension skills together.

As for the rest of your comment, were you looking in the mirror when you dreamed that one up?

I'll be waiting for the pitchfork post. I'll add it to awt's delusions that I bragged about working for the post office. Maybe you can be research buddies.

bosco

threecents sez "Bosco and CD, Maybe you know this, but if you didn't go out of your way to say things that sound racist or otherwise offensive, then people would probably not think of you as racist and offensive and would feel less of a need to react to what they perceive to be racism or otherwise offensive speech. In other words, would it hurt you so much to behave?"

Show me something that I've posted that is racist. Anything. Dig back as far as you want. And don't settle for "talking in code" which was the best Fido could come up with. Maybe you can join in with Fido on his research into his claim about the pitchfork or awt into his claim that I bragged about working for the postal service.

Let me know what you find.

Oh, BTW, did you find jth7100's comment about a White sounding name to be racist or offensive?

C.D.Reid

Don't hold your breath waiting for a reply from either of them, bosco.

bosco

Oh, I won't CD. I press them to post the source of their delusional conclusions, but they can't. Fido's newest that I posted about my grandfather losing an eye from a pitchfork is a perfect example. I never said that, and in fact, if memory serves I've only mentioned twice here how he was attacked and almost lost an eye from having a torch thrust into his face. And then, of course, there's awt's claim that I bragged about working at the post office. He can't prove it, but yet he persists with his delusion because he can't admit to being wrong from poor comprehension skills.

Jethro Bodine.....brain surgeon. He was too busy ciphering to notice where to comment.

jth7100

Is this for me?

bosco

Is Jethro Bodine a White sounding name or a Black sounding name?

It's JUNE 1st..again JUNE 1st and this happened when? APRIL 29th...Is the FNP really this hard up for news? But we all know why you chose to print this...your privilege is showing again....

Plumbum

not hard up for news. All the FNP Staff, the writers, the reporters,and the picture takers, are busy delivering the newspapers around the county

PurplePickles aka L&M

Oh so that’s why the cut and paste from the police blotter.., makes sense but doesn’t excuse them for this overtly racist pick

oldladysarah

What makes this racist? Did it get edited? I don't see face mentioned.

C.D.Reid

In the first place, Snowy, the incident happened April 29th but, because of the investigation, she wasn't arrested until May 20th, which was less than two weeks ago. And it's not uncommon to report on something that long after the fact. Secondly, just what is it that makes this an "overtly racist pick?" Where in the article is there any mention at all of anyone's race? Is throwing the race card so ingrained in you people that you just fling it anytime you feel like it? FYI, that's exactly why crying "Racist!" carries so little weight anymore these days. Ever hear the story of the boy who cried "Wolf?" That is exactly what you're doing with that last line of yours.

C.D.Reid

[thumbup][thumbup] I'm just wondering what Snowy knows that nobody else does... [lol][lol][lol]

C.D.Reid

Still have that chip on your shoulder, huh Plumbum? Can't dispute what Geordie Wilson said to you so you feel you have to take it out on me here. Ever think about growing up, hon? Adult life really isn't all that bad, ya know.

Plumbum

You’re so sweet Davey boi

C.D.Reid

Just got home and saw your earlier comment was deleted, Pb. How come?
