Maryland State Police report that on Sept. 29, 2019, at approximately 5:29 pm, Troopers from the Maryland State Police Salisbury Barrack responded to a single-vehicle accident in the area of Old Ocean City Road at Bent Pine Road.
Troopers arrived on scene and made contact with the driver who was identified as Michael James Ruarke 2nd, (DOB 02/1990) of 7815 Purnell Crossing Road, Berlin, Md., through his Maryland ID card. Troopers observed a white Dodge truck that had struck a telephone pole, disabling it.
Troopers detected the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from Ruarke’s breath and person. Investigation revealed that Ruarke was operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol and traveled off the roadway, striking a telephone pole. Ruarke refused medical treatment.
Ruarke was transported to the MSP Salisbury Barrack where he refused to submit to the intoximeter test.
Ruarke was charged by Trooper Ashley Romeo with driving under the influence of alcohol-related charges.

On May 30, 2012, Ruarke violated the terms of his probation, which may have had to do with drugs or burglaries.
