GERMANTOWN, Md. (WJZ) — A Salvation Army bell ringer is likely to face criminal charges after he allegedly ingested PCP and assaulted a customer outside a Walmart.

The incident happened Dec. 12 in Germantown.

Officers were called to the store after 40-year-old David Kelley allegedly stopped collecting donations and licked vials that appeared to contain oil.

Witnesses say Kelley appeared agitated, shouted obscenities, and hit a customer in the face shortly after.

    This is something new that the salvation army started this year.The steroid bell ringers are a hoot too.

    Maryland is the east coast version of California when it comes to loonies.

  3. Was it the PCP or the fact that he was ringing his bell and shaking his a*s*s in close proximity to a Walmart that precipitated this assault?

  4. Tom Ronson says:

    This is all understandable. The poor guy was upset because he was missing an all lives matter meeting.

  5. Ask not for whom the bell tolls. It tolls PCP.

    Salvation Army doesn’t care who they can get to ring that f’ing annoying bell. I walk as fast as I can past it. I no longer give to the Salvation Army. I donated some Omaha Steaks and the Captain promptly put it in the back of his car. It was suppose to go into the food baskets, not into the back of his car. He said “this is for my family.” Haven’t give them a penny since.

    I like to donate to poor peoples direct without the meddling of the so called Salvation Army.I gave once a good donation to a woman from this army which I regret
