Baltimore court passes on speed-camera charges

For many drivers, receiving a traffic violation is more than just a mere inconvenience. If a person has a commercial driver's license or has a record of traffic violations, his or her licensure could be in jeopardy with another conviction. Recently, one Baltimore man was likely relieved when a court dismissed unfair charges brought against him.

Legislator proposes expanding Maryland ignition-interlock law

Child support on man's Christmas list

A man has sparked laughter and the supportive honks of a few car horns with his hand-painted sign that he put out in his front for people, including the mother of his children, to see.

Baltimore woman accused of attempted murder for car accident

Telephonic marriage valid; divorce imminent

Ocean City flooded with heroin trafficking

When Maryland law enforcement sees an increase in a particular sort of crime -- heroin trafficking for example -- they attempt to do something about it. The danger in a big drug round up is that an innocent person could be roped in simply because of proximity, circumstances or dumb luck.

2 arrested for St. Mary's pharmacy break-in and theft

When one hears of a drug bust in Baltimore, one usually thinks of marijuana, cocaine, heroin or some other illegal drug or controlled substance. One might not think of hydrocodone. According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, hydrocodone is only available in combination with other drugs. It is in a class of medications called opiate (narcotic) analgesics. Hydrocodone relieves pain by changing the way the brain and nervous system respond to pain. It is highly addictive. Some use it to get high.
