City development director Matt Nazar said a man came into the city’s General Assistance office on Friday seeking help with bedbugs at his apartment. Nazar said the apartment was already being sprayed and the man didn’t qualify for assistance finding other housing.
Nazar said the man told police he wanted the government workers to experience what he was experiencing. Nazar called it “an extraordinary bit of misdirected anger.”READ MORE: Franchot Calls For Special Session To Halt Maryland Gas Tax Hike, Implement 4-Month Gas Tax Holiday
