On May 26 at 2:45 a.m., PFC V. Warker responded to the area of Tanglewood Drive and Tawny Drive in Waldorf for the report of a suspicious vehicle.

Upon approaching the car, PFC Warker noticed the driver appeared to be asleep; the car was in drive but the driver’s foot was on the brake.

PFC Warker was able to access the vehicle and put it in park. While attempting to wake the driver, PFC Warker noticed marijuana in plain view.

Once the driver woke, he refused to comply with PFC Warker’s commands and he also refused to exit the car.

A struggle ensued between the driver and PFC Warker and the driver attempted to grab the marijuana and flee. PFC Warker used his agency issued electronic control device and the driver was taken into custody.

The suspect continued to struggle and resist PFC Warker until additional units arrived. A check revealed the driver, Adrian Farris, 26, of Waldorf had five outstanding felony warrants relating to drug charges both in Maryland and Virginia.

Officers also found quantities of oxycodone, Xanax, MDMA “molly” and marijuana in the car. Farris was charged with assault, resisting arrest, and possession with the intent to distribute illegal drugs.
