DEWEY BEACH, Del. (AP) - A Maryland couple is charged with trying to take a security guard's gun during a struggle in a Delaware beach town.
 
Delaware State Police said in a statement that John Clancy of Towson and Julia Price of Baltimore, both 21, approached the guard in Dewey Beach early Monday and asked for a ride to Ocean City, Maryland. He told them a cab would be called, but when they walked toward a home, the guard warned they'd be arrested.
 
Police say Clancy knocked the guard down and as they struggled, Price tried to take his gun. Dewey Beach Police arrested Clancy and Price and turned them over to troopers. They're charged with attempting to remove a firearm from a law enforcement officer, second-degree conspiracy and offensive touching.
 
The guard wasn't injured.
