Man, 60, Arrested For Charging At Co-Worker With Pitchfork

LAUREL, Md. (AP) — Anne Arundel County police have charged a 60-year-old man with hitting a co-worker at Laurel Park Race Track and charging him with a pitchfork.

The Capital reports that officers were called to the track on Monday morning.

Police say a 27-year-old man told officers that fellow groomer, Jose Maria Colindres Salazar, punched him during an argument and charged him with a pitchfork. The man told police he fended off Salazar by hitting him with some kind of object and fled.

The man was taken to an area hospital with a laceration to the ear.

Officers took Salazar into custody and charged him with first- and second-degree assault, as well as reckless endangerment.
