A dump truck driver was arrested Wednesday after police say he intentionally rammed two police cruisers at a Glenarden shopping center.
No one was hurt and no officers were in the cruisers at the time of the incident, which Prince George’s County police said occurred at the Woodmore Towne Center just off Interstate 95 and Landover Road.
The incident began a little before noon as two patrol officers were outside a Costco planning to refill fluids in the cruisers when there was a “brief exchange of words” with the driver of the dump truck, said Lt. William Alexander, a police spokesman.
It’s unclear what the man — who police said was unprovoked — said to officers through the window of his truck, Alexander said. But the officers believe it was a “negative conversation” and “they’re alert to the fact that this guy doesn’t seem happy to police,” Alexander said.
