It is not a harmless prank…
A Caroline County Sheriff’s deputy responded to the Hunting Creek Bridge at Choptank Sunday regarding a report of juveniles who were disrupting traffic. The juveniles were not located but the officer drove into heavy-duty fishing line that was strung from one side of the bridge to another.
The fishing line damaged the deputy’s vehicle spotlight. Officials said if a motorcyclist or cyclist had encountered the line, the result could have been tragic.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact the Caroline County Sheriff’s Office at 410-479-2515.
