Three people face riot and other charges after police responded to a fight during Milford’s community parade Oct. 18.
Milford police officers on parade detail with assistance from Milton and Rehoboth Beach police officers responded to a fight at 7:24 p.m. in a parking lot in the 100 block of South Walnut Street, said Sgt. Robert Masten of the Milford Police Department.
Upon arrival, Masten said, one of the two people fighting fled the scene. Masten said when police contacted Constance Mack, 30, of Milford, two men intervened as police tried to resolve the issue. Joshua A. Johnson, 20, of Greenwood and Tyquine Green, 18, of Ellendale were both disorderly and uncooperative with officers after police told them to cease their behavior, Masten said.
Both Green and Johnson struck officers as police tried to take them into custody, Masten said. Police used pepper spray on the men; a body camera was damaged by Johnson during the incident, Masten said.
Police continue to investigate the fight.
Mack was charged with riot and disorderly conduct and had a warrant for an undisclosed incident. She was arraigned at Justice of the Peace Court 3 on $3,500 unsecured bond. Johnson was charged with riot, resisting arrest, two counts of offensive touching of a law enforcement officer, criminal mischief and disorderly conduct. He was committed to Sussex Correctional Institution in default of $3,000 cash. Green was charged with riot, resisting arrest, two counts of offensive touching of a law enforcement officer and disorderly conduct. His bail was set at $6,000 unsecured. All three are scheduled for preliminary hearings at the Sussex County Court of Common Pleas on Oct. 26, Masten said.
