MDTA Police Charge Suspect in Dangerous Driving Incident
on Bay Bridge After Video is Posted to Social Media

Suspected driver faces combined 27 criminal and traffic charges

 

ANNAPOLIS, MD (October 1, 2020) On Sunday, September 27, Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA) Police were notified of a video depicting reckless and dangerous driving behavior that had been posted to social media. MDTA Police Officers conducted a thorough investigation and confirmed that the incident occurred on the westbound span of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge (US 50/301) in Queen Anne's County on September 27. 

Through the investigation, officers identified 22-year-old Gary Ray Montague Jr. of Dumfries, Va. as the suspected driver of the vehicle in the video, and consulted with the Queen Anne's County State's Attorney's Office.

On Tuesday, September 29, Montague was charged with four counts of disorderly conduct and 23 traffic violations. Traffic charges include reckless driving, willfully damaging a highway and driving a motor vehicle in a manner intended to cause skidding.

Those persons charged with a crime are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

The Maryland Transportation Authority Police, a nationally accredited force, is the seventh-largest law enforcement agency in the State with more than 600 sworn and civilian law enforcement professionals. MDTA Police Officers provide law enforcement at the MDTA’s highways, bridges and tunnels, at BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport, and at the Port of Baltimore.
