we have a right to our opinion. brian obviously had issues. i agree. how can you listen to the 911 scanner all day, and hours later be dead at your own hands??? brian knew better. we all do. fatal drunk driving crashes, are NOT accidents. they are eventualities!!!! it will catch up to you. just bc brian was the admin of some facebook page. doesnt make him above the laws. if you dont believe me. look what it got him.

Where did you hear of the police wanting $200.00 to gain access? Never heard of such a thing. Why aren't our elected officials (Mr. Fink) looking into this further? Cuz it doesn't benefit him? Oh, that's right he's still busy trying to figure out how to increase the traffic congestion on Mountain Rd. More business for the "Turtle"

@John Holmes. I contacted a news paper and asked them to look into this situation since we weren't getting any response from the Patch regarding the info and you know Anne Arundel County Breaking News won't say anything about it. The paper got back to me and said that the police wanted $200 for the report, so the paper was filing a freedom of information request in order to procure the complete toxicology report. Believe me I wish I was making this up, but I am not that creative. Perhaps the Patch would like to try and get this report? Maybe if the police try to extort $200 from the Patch, the Patch could do a report on that????

If the toxicology report came back negagtive it would be posted on AACBN. It does not matter to me though. Sad to see someone pass for any reason. Before you judge give your self a big long look in the mirror- just saying noone is perfect
