California, MD — It was a wild scene at a drive-through in California. A 23-year-old District Heights man hit not one, but two, vehicles attempting to get away from law enforcement and a 31-year-old Great Mills woman was arrested for causing a disturbance during the arrest.
It all started on September 17, when deputies from the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office were assisting the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives with a firearms investigation involving Daiquan Malik Barnett.
Barnett was spotted with a a firearm concealed in his waistband and officers later spotted him again going through drive-through located in the 22800 block of Three Notch Road in California.
When ATF agents tried to stop the vehicle, Barnett backed up and hit another vehicle in the drive-through. Then he pulled forward and hit the ATF vehicle with the agents inside.
When Barnett was taken into custody, a search of the vehicle turned a handgun and a 50 round drum magazine. Found on Barnett’s person was a quantity of a white powdery substance (suspected cocaine) as well as suspected crack cocaine.
Barnett has a prior felony conviction for Possession with the Intent to Distribute Cocaine. Barnett was arrested and charged with CDS: Distribution With a Firearm, CDS: Possession of Firearms, Firearm Possession-Criminal with Felony Conviction, Assault Second Degree-Law Enforcement Officer, and CDS: Possession-Not Marijuana.
While this was happening, the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office says Ikia Lachay Chase showed up on the scene and began cursing at officers and yelling, demanding to know particulars of the vehicle stop.
A deputy directed Chase to leave the area, but she refused and continued to yell and curse. Chase arrested and charged with Disorderly Conduct and Obstructing and Hindering.
