DIRTBAG ROUNDUP: Spencer Schwink collided with two vehicles on Rt. 50, and fled; was followed by one victim until police could put the pinch on the repeat offender DWI coward
PARSONBURG, MD. – The Maryland State Police report that a repeat offender DWI driver crashed into two other vehicles on Dec. 7, 2019, just after five o’clock pm, as he drove on Rt. 50 near Parsonsburg, Md., and then fled the scene. One of his victims tracked him until the police could respond and make an arrest.
Callers to the State Police reported the incident as one of the victims kept up behind the fleeing vehicle.
Police say that the at-fault vehicle, a 2012 Mazda 6, operated by Spencer Patrick Schwink, (DOB 06/06/1996) of 1804 Laurel Road, Edgewater, Md., struck Vehicle #2 and Vehicle #3, a 2015 Toyota Camry, operated by Sharon Noonan, of Salisbury, Md., on the US. Rt. 50 westbound in the area of Forest Grove Rd.
Vehicle #2, a 2010 Ford F-150 operated by Mark Fletcher, of Baltimore, Md., continued behind the at-fault vehicle which enabled Troopers to find them, stop and identify the driver as Spencer Patrick Schwink.
Police say that a further investigation revealed Schwink was operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol.
Spencer Patrick Schwink was placed under arrest for DWI and transported to the Maryland State Police Salisbury Barrack for processing. The other vehicles involved obtained minor damage but no injuries were reported to the drivers.
Schwink may have been induced to fleeing from the scene of his highway mayhem by the knowledge of his guilty plea to DWI on Nov. 2, 2015, in Anne Arundel County District Court.
Schwink was arrested by Anne Arundel County Police Officer Ryan Shipley on June 21, 2015, as he operated a 2002 Nissan on Triton Beach Road. In the plea deal with Anne Arundel County States Attorney Wes Adams and his taxpayer-provided public defender, Schwink was given a verdict of Probation Before Judgement.
The court ordered supervised probation was marred when a warrant for his arrest was ordered for a violation of the probation on Feb. 11, 2016. Court records show that Schwink failed to complete 24 hours of community service and was jailed on March 17, 2016, where he served two days before his release on bond. At a court hearing on Aug. 17, 2016, the record shows that the violation of probation charge was dismissed.
