Maryland Rape Suspect Arrested In Florida During “High-Rick” Traffic Stop

A 41-year-old Maryland man wanted in connection to a rape case in that state is booked into the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility, after the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) assisted the United States Marshals Office in his capture.

Shawn Patrick Scott, 41, of Glen Burnie, Maryland, was arrested at 12:04 p.m. on Thursday during a high-risk traffic stop on State Road 100 near Interstate 95.

Members of the U.S. Marshals along with FCSO’s Problem Area Crime Enforcement (PACE) Team and Fugitive Unit discovered that Scott was hiding at a home in the Seminole Woods area.

“This guy thought he could escape serious sex-related charges by coming to Flagler County,” said Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly. “He’s now discovered that was a very bad idea. I commend our deputies for working alongside our federal partners to put handcuffs on this dirtbag.”

Scott is currently facing four charges stemming from Anne Arundel County, Maryland, including first-degree assault, second-degree assault, second-degree rape, and third-degree sex offense.

This is not Scott’s first run-in with the authorities in Maryland.

His criminal history in that state dates back to 1999 and includes charges of assault, attempted second-degree murder, burglary, false imprisonment, harassment, marijuana possession, property destruction, reckless endangerment, theft, and violation of a protection order.

Scott has no prior criminal history in Flagler County. He was arrested for being a fugitive from justice and is being held on no bond at the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility as he awaits extradition.
