Police Charge Second Man in 'Road Rage' Case

Jeffrey Furlough of Baltimore was arrested after he reportedly forced another car off the road after being stabbed on Maryland Route 3.

Anne Arundel County police have arrested a second man in connection with a car accident and stabbing Monday on Maryland Route 3.

Police said in a press release that they arrested Jeffrey Neil Furlough, 44, of the 100 block of West Jeffrey Street in Baltimore for his involvement in the incident that left two cars in a ditch near the Honda Powersports store in Gambrills.

The commotion on Route 3 northbound started at about 4 p.m. Monday, with Furlough behind the wheel of a Ford Explorer. Police said he got into a verbal altercation with Brandon Ross Sudbrook, who was the passenger in a Chrysler PT Cruiser.

After Furlough reportedly confronted Sudbrook on the roadway, Sudbrook stabbed him.

Police said that in response, Furlough drove his Explorer into the PT Cruiser, resulting in both cars careening into a ditch. The two men then fought, and Furlough eventually subdued Sudbrook until police arrived.

Both Furlough and Sudbrook were transported to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, but their injuries were not serious.

Family members told Patch that Furlough had been married earlier in the day.

Police charged Sudbrook on Tuesday with assault and other related crimes. After consulting with the States Attorney's Office, they obtained a warrant for Furlough's arrest. Furlough turned himself into police Thursday evening, and he was held on two counts of first-degree assault and two counts of second-degree assault.

Two wrongs don't make a right. Throw them both in jail and be done with it.

Like too many people with "thug" mentality in this area, neither of them were concerned with anything or anyone beyond their own testosterone-fueled egos. For too many people in this vicinity (the ones who push and shove other people into and out of trains; the ones who slam into you with their backpacks and totes and never say, "Excuse me"; the ones in spike heels who run from the MARC train to their "handicapped" spaces; the ones who think they own the roads, so are exempt from signaling their intent, or showing others courtesy; and walking or driving, the ones who are so absorbed in their texting and web-surfing that they think they have the right to endanger the lives of others; and so on), it's all--and only--about "me," about what I'm thinking or feeling, about "my" rights--and to hell with you. These two individuals are perfect examples of that.

I hate to "blame" the victim but I believe both of them belong in jail. Don't stare at anyone, don't make gestures (you know what I'm talking about), and certainly do not get out of your car and argue with anyone on the road. This is not the 80's in "Hometown USA". Too many crazies out there!

i agree with the fact that they were both wrong,however if the guy had been a cop-threw his lights on,and went after him and did the same thing-you wouldn't be hearing that he got booked....he'd be getting a medal right now....i'm sorry yeah two wrongs don't make a right however sometimes you gotta stand up to the shitheads and make point "don't fuck with me"...i'm sure the court case will come out of this..
