Trooper breaks leg, makes arrest
Maryland State Police say a trooper who broke his leg during a foot chase still managed to make the arrest.
Trooper First Class Jeremy Tindal stopped a car Sunday evening for allegedly speeding on Interstate 270.
Police say that when 22-year-old passenger Daniel Famulare of Darnestown acted suspiciously, Tindal ordered him out for a pat-down.
Police say a plastic bag of drug paraphernalia fell from Famulare's pant leg and he took off running.
During a chase down an embankment, Tindal felt something pop in his left leg but managed to pull Famulare to the ground by his shirt.
Famulare was charged with drug offenses and resisting arrest. He remained behind bars Monday morning with bond set at $5,500.
