A Bel Air man was stabbed at Tully’s Bar in Fallston early Sunday, and six people were charged in connection with what police are calling a melee that involved numerous fights in the bar and on the parking lot.

Police remain unsure what prompted the fighting at the establishment, whose liquor licensees were called before the Harford County Liquor Control Board last month, 10 days before the latest trouble there.

“I think it was just a lot of people in a small area,” said Lt. Christina Presberry, a spokesperson for the Harford County Sheriff’s Office.

The license holders for Tully’s were before the liquor board Oct. 21 and told to clean up the operation or face being charged with licensing violations.

The Harford County Sheriff’s Office gave the following account of what happened in the early morning hours Sunday:

Around 1:20 a.m., sheriff’s deputies arrived at the bar to find a large crowd on the parking lot with numerous fights taking place. Deputies requested assistance and members of Maryland State Police Bel Air Barrack, North East Barrack, JFK Barrack, Bel Air Police Department and Baltimore County Police Department arrived to help stabilize the scene. A car trying to leave the lot hit a deputy and continued on its way, according to a news release from the sheriff’s office.

The deputy involved in the accident was not injured.

The car got caught in traffic and the driver, Sylvia Lynne Core, 44, was taken into custody, according to the release.

Deputies saw the front-seat passenger, Thomas V. Hill Jr., allegedly take a green substance out of a plastic bag and shove it into his mouth, according to the release.

Hill and a second passenger, Antoine Donte Smith, allegedly refused to heed deputies’ requests to get out of the car.

One of the deputies was assaulted during the incident. Deputies also arrested Robert A. McClellan, 22, in connection with a separate incident on the parking lot. McClellan allegedly incited others in the crowd and was told to leave, but allegedly refused.

Core, of the 900 block of Edmund Street in Aberdeen, was charged with first-degree assault, second-degree assault and reckless endangerment. She was released from the Harford County Detention Center on a $10,000 bond.

Hill, 34, of the 2300 block of Rogate Circle in Gwynn Oak, was charged with possession of marijuana, resisting or interfering with arrest and failure to obey a lawful police order. He was released from the detention center on a $5,000 bond.

Smith, 31, of the 2000 block of Watergate Court in Edgewood, was charged with second-degree assault, failure to obey a lawful police order and resisting or interfering with arrest. Smith was released from the detention center on a $7,500 bond.

McClellan, of the 2300 block of Hanson Road in Edgewood, was charged with failure to obey a lawful police order and disorderly conduct. He was released from the detention center on his own recognizance.

As Sheriff’s Office personnel dealt with the hit and run and several fights in the area, Maryland State Police troopers were faced with another situation after arriving at the scene around 1:22 a.m., where they tried to break up numerous fights. According to a Maryland State Police press release, one of the fights allegedly involved Tyrell Lamont Young, 22. Security removed Young from the bar, and then Young allegedly got into a fight with security.

TFC Wayne Johnson saw the fight with security and detained Young. Shortly after Young was detained, Sgt. Jeffrey Kloiber discovered Young had allegedly stabbed 26-year-old Bel Air resident David Swedo, while in the bar, according to the state police release.

Douglas Reginald Green, 25, was also allegedly involved in the stabbing, according to the state police release.

Swedo had several stab wounds to his back and was taken to Bayview Hospital in Baltimore.

Young, of the 700 block of Brooke Court in Joppa, was charged Sunday with first- and second-degree attempted murder, first-degree assault, reckless endangerment and three counts of second-degree assault. He was being held Tuesday morning at the Harford County Detention Center on a $75,000 bond.

Green, of the 100 block of Hanover Street in Aberdeen, was charged with being an accessory after the fact of first- and second-degree attempted murder, first- and second-degree assault and reckless endangerment. Green was released Monday on $7,500 bond.
