York, PA – Today, United States Marshal Martin J. Pane
announced the arrest of Brian Adams, a 32-year old Red Lion man.
On August 21, 2020, the Baltimore Police Department investigated a
traffic accident in which three bicyclists were struck by a vehicle
before fleeing the scene. The investigation revealed that Adams
allegedly intentionally struck the bicyclists – momentarily pinning one
to a vehicle. On August 27th, officers obtained an arrest warrant
charging him with three counts of Attempted 1st Degree Murder and lesser
included offenses. Attempts to find Adams at his Red Lion home were
unsuccessful and the fugitive case was adopted by the U.S. Marshals
Service (USMS) Fugitive Task Force.
Today at about 1 p.m.,
members of the task force and Pennsylvania State Police arrested Adams
in the 2100 block of South Queen Street, York without incident. He was
turned over to the York County Sheriff’s Office Central Booking Unit to
await extradition to Maryland.
U.S. Marshal Martin Pane said,
“The U.S. Marshals Service recognizes the importance of bringing those
charged with multiple violent offenses to justice as quickly as
possible. We give these type of cases our utmost attention. It is my
hope that the victims and their family members will find comfort knowing
the alleged attacker is now in custody.”
The USMS Fugitive Task
Force in the Middle District of Pennsylvania is comprised of 20 state,
county and local police agencies, including: the York City Police
Department; the Pennsylvania State Police; the Pennsylvania Board of
Probation and Parole; the York County Sheriff’s Office; the York County
