Police: Man became belligerent, threatened others following crash

September 14, 2018

A 36-year-old Friendsville, Maryland, man was arraigned Tuesday on charges stemming from an alcohol-fueled wreck. He was later discovered in a barn along Chicken Bone Road in Upper Turkeyfoot Township, and he told the owners he was going to burn down the barn for calling the police, according to a probable-cause affidavit.

State police found Bobby Rydell Lloyd II bleeding from a lacerated nose that appeared to happen when his vehicle hit a stop sign and ended up in a ditch a short distance away along Fort Hill Road. There were empty beer cans in the vehicle and blood around the driver’s seat, police said.

Lloyd refused to tell the trooper who he was and his address. A U.S. passport with a picture of Lloyd was found in his right rear pocket, according to the affidavit.

While at the scene, he yelled obscenities and talked about having sex with the trooper in front of medical personnel, according to police. Lloyd allegedly did the same once in the Somerset Hospital emergency room.

“The ER staff had to close the doors to Lloyd’s room and close other doors to stop them from having to listen to Lloyd,” police wrote.

Lloyd was transferred by van to Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center in Johnstown. On the way he pulled out his penis and told the EMS staff, “If you don’t let me piss I’m just gonna start going.” He refused to use a plastic urinal and told the staff: “Treat me like a man. I’m not going to use that thing,” according to the affidavit.

Lloyd was charged with criminal trespass, a felony, driving under the influence, terroristic threats, disorderly conduct and open lewdness, misdemeanors, and summary offenses of public drunkenness, driving on roadways laned for traffic, careless driving, reckless driving and accidents involving damage to unattended property.

He was placed in the Somerset County Jail in lieu of a $25,000 bond.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 11:15 a.m. Sept. 20 before District Judge Sandra Stevanus in New Centerville. There is no defense attorney listed on an online court docket.
