Police: Free hot dog leads to fight, brick thrown through car window

Police said a fight over a hot dog got out of hand when a North Jackson Street man threw a brick through a neighbor’s car window. The fight spilled into the 900 block of North Jackson Street, around the corner from the Armed Forces Day celebration event Saturday at City Park.
Salisbury Police say a private warrant was taken against Shaar Gentle Worth, 26, of the 900 block of North Jackson Street, after he was accused of fighting and then throwing a brick through the car window that belonged to neighbor Raheem Westmoreland.
Worth, also known as Shaar Andre Worth, was issued a criminal summons for misdemeanor injury to personal property and ordered to appear in court June 26. Worth was not issued a bond.
An officer working at the event was alerted to two males fighting in the middle of the street in front of 921 N. Jackson St. The officer separated the two males and asked both to step away. Worth began walking away from the officer and was shortly after detained by police.
Westmoreland told police Worth had not received a free hot dog and wanted to know why his children received one instead, according to a report.
Westmoreland said he didn’t want any trouble and didn’t need police response, but Worth was reportedly becoming loud and he asked Worth to stop shouting, a report said.
Worth picked up a brick from a nearby yard and started swinging it. He then threw it, hitting Westmoreland’s Mercury Sable. A report said friends broke up the fight between the men. No arrest was made at the scene, but Worth was arrested later that night.
Police Capt. Shelia Lingle said Worth received a cut to his hand and was seen by a member of the Rowan County Rescue Squad who was at the event.
Worth has a pending case and is expected in court in June for malicious conduct by a prisoner, assault on a government official, breaking and entering,
