Dewey livestreaming council meetings Beginning with the Friday, July 7 meeting, Dewey Beach Town Council meetings will be livestreamed. Town Manager Marc Appelbaum said during the June 9 council meeting that as part of the service, meetings will be stored online for later view- ing. He said the town will see how things work and, if things work well, the board of adjust- ment and planning and zoning meetings could be livestreamed too. A link to livestreaming can be found on the town’s website at Dewey handicap mat installed A handicap and wheelchair- accessible mat has been placed over the dune crossing in front of the Dewey Beach Life Saving Station on the ocean block of Dagsworthy Avenue. Town Manager Marc Apple- baum said the 140-foot-long mat cost about $7,500. He said they chose that beach entrance be- cause that’s where Movies on the Beach are held, and it’s also where the beach wheelchairs used by the town’s lifeguards are stored.

The inci- dent occurred shortly before 3 a.m. A trooper was working a traffic assign- ment at the entrance of Lot 18 north of Persimmon Tree Lane in Dover when a white Ford Transit van was seen trav- eling south down the gravel road entrance to the lot, swerved and crashed into a fence and brush, said Sgt. Richard Bratz of Delaware State Police. Police quickly responded to the crash and learned the driver, later identified as 25-year- old Zachary O. Hamilton of Dickerson, Md., had stolen the van. Hamilton resisted arrest, punched at troopers and also head-butted the side of a marked police vehicle, leaving a dent, Bratz said. Further investigation revealed Hamilton had punched a woman driving the van when she got out of the driver’s seat, and stolen the van with six RMC Events employee passengers. The employees in the van tried to stop Hamilton, Bratz said, but were unable and sustained minor injuries. Hamilton was taken to Bay- health Medical Center at Kent General Hospital where it was determined he was under the influence of drugs. He is charged with first-degree carjacking, at- tempting to commit assault on a law-enforcement officer, resist- ing arrest with force, criminal mischief over $5,000, six counts of second-degree reckless en- dangering, third-degree assault, criminal mischief over $1,000 and driving a vehicle under the influence of drugs. Rehoboth man arrested for trespassing Rehoboth Beach police have arrested a Rehoboth man for resisting arrest after he was stopped for trespassing in Grove Park and found to have active warrants. Po- lice said Naim Guy, 34, was sitting in a pa- vilion inside the park after dark. When a bicycle officer stopped Guy and performed a wanted person’s check, he was found to have an active warrant for his arrest for not paying fines assessed by the Delaware Court of Common Pleas. Besides being in the park after dark, Guy also had an open container of alcohol, both viola- tions of city ordinances. Police say when they tried to take Guy into custody, he refused and began to walk away. Offi- cers were forced to restrain Guy against a nearby picnic table and force him into handcuffs, police officials said. Guy was charged with resisting arrest and third-degree trespass- ing, both misdemeanors, and incarcerated at Sussex Correc- tional Institution in Georgetown on $284 cash bail. Police & Fire » Zachary Hamilton Naim Guy Bicyclist critically injured in crash A 72-year-old cyclist is in criti- cal condition following a crash with a tractor-trailer west of Millsboro June 15. The crash occurred about 3 p.m. as Frankford resident Ches- ter Littleon, 65, was driving a 1999 Freightliner tractor pulling a 2009 Wade trailer westbound on Laurel Road, also known as Route 24, approaching the inter- section at Carey’s Camp Road, said Sgt. Richard Bratz of the Delaware State Police. Kenneth Tull of Delmar, Md., was cycling southbound on Car- ey’s Camp Road approaching the same intersection when he failed to stop and yield at the intersection. Laurel Road is a throughway, so a stop sign con- trols traffic on Carey’s Camp Road, Bratz said. As Tull attempted to cross Laurel Road, Littleton braked and swerved left to avoid the bicycle and its rider, Bratz said, but the front right of the tractor-trailer hit the left side of the bicycle in the middle of the intersection, throwing Tull from his bike. The truck and trailer skidded to a stop. Tull, who was wearing a helmet, was flown to Christiana Hospital, where he was admitted in critical condition; Littleton, who was wearing his seatbelt, was not injured in the collision. Laurel and Carey’s Camp roads were closed in the area of the crash for about 2.5 hours as the scene was investigated and cleared, Bratz said. The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit is investigating the crash and asks any witnesses call Cpl. N. Demal- to at 302-703-3267 or Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP- 3333.
