ROSEDALE, Md. — A 45-year-old Nottingham driver is facing charges after allegedly striking and ripping the door off a Maryland State Police cruiser, Wednesday afternoon in Baltimore County.

Officials say a trooper was inside a marked car on the scene of a crash along I-95 in Rosedale, when a box truck allegedly driven by Gasper Botteon hit the driver’s side door of the police car, and kept going.

About two hours later, troopers found Botteon and the truck on Route 24 at Bel Air S. Parkway in Belair.

Police say he showed signs of suspected impairment and was arrested on DUI and hit and run charges.

Neither the trooper or Botteon were injured.
