A Suspended Police Chase, For Safety’s Sake–and an ArrestAt 11:20 p.m. February 10 (Friday evening), a deputy was dispatched to the McDonald’s on State Road 100 in reference to a possible fraud in progress. Employees were reporting that two black males entered the restaurant and one had passed a fraudulent $20 bill. Both males then left the restaurant and drove away in a White Ford Crown Victoria, possibly toward Bunnell. When the deputy arrived at the scene, he saw a vehicle matching the Victoria’s description leaving the restaurant parking lot and turning onto State Road 100, with no headlights or taillights. The deputy reports: “Upon activating my emergency lights and sirens in an attempt to conduct a traffic stop on that vehicle, the vehicle increased its speed in an attempt to flee and elude me. The defendant continued speeding away from me until he entered the intersection of Belle Terre Parkway arid State Road 100 where he conducted an illegal U-turn and began traveling Northbound on Belle Terre Parkway. Due to road conditions and the safety of the public the pursuit was terminated and the suspect continued traveling northbound on Belle Terre Parkway.” SA lieutenant then informed the deputy that the suspect’s vehicle had crashed on the northbound side of Belle Terre in front of the Publix shopping center. The suspect was apprehended. The vehicle was searched. Approximately five feet away from the front passenger side of the vehicle a small plastic container was located with a light colored rock substance inside. The substance was believed to be crack cocaine. The investigation revealed the money used at McDonald’s was not counterfeit. The male apprehended, Tabias A. Green, 21, of Daytona Beach, had two active warrants out of Volusia County for Failure To Appear and Grand Theft. Green was charged with Fleeing and Eluding, Driving While License is Suspended with Knowledge, Possession of Cocaine, and Possession of Marijuana. The passenger of the vehicle was never located.
A Dog Stabbing
A deputy responded to 5 Prospect Lane, B, in Palm Coast at 9:30 p.m. on Feb. 12 when the resident there reported her dog having been stabbed and killed. The dog, a gray female pit bull, was stabbed several times in the neck and stomach area. The resident told the deputy that her friend Sahmi Green, 24, of Prospect Lane, had taken the dog for a walk. A few moments later, Sahmi returned with the dog and told the resident that the dog was involved in a dog fight. Sahmi then left the residence and was unable to be located. A search of the entire area was conducted but was fruitless. During the search, a blood trail was followed to 9 Prospect Lane #B. There, a bloody kitchen knife without the handle, and a pair of eye glasses, were discovered. Contact was later made with Sahmi who said that upon arrival at the dog owner’s house, the dog charged at him and chased him down the road. So Sahmi stabbed the dog multiple times in self defense. A voluntary statement was completed by Sahmi. No charges are being pursued at this time. For more on Sahmi Green, see the incident below.
Anger and Arrests
Flagler County Sheriff’s Office units responded to 39 Prince John Lane in Palm Coast on Feb. 13 where Sahmi Green, 24, of Prospect Lane in Palm Coast, and three women were involved in a disturbance. The three women continued to yell and scream at each other during the deputies’ investigation. Contact was made with the mother and caller, Carla Price, who stated that she was sleeping and woke up to her daughters arguing and fighting. One of the daughters, Nekosha Jones, 18, wanted to go with Sahmi Green. Her mother did not want her to go. Price also wanted her daughter, Courtney Price, 21, off the property. A deputy asked Carla Price if Courtney Price lives there and she stated no. When a deputy asked Courtney Price to leave, she refused. Nekosha Jones and Candace Price started an argument with their mother by the front door. As they were arguing, Nekosha Jones started to bang her head against the wall, knocking her out.The deputy continues: “I returned to the front down where Carla Price and the daughters were arguing. Courtney Price proceeded back to the residence towards me. D/S Barile observed Courtney Price running back to the residence in an aggressive manner towards me. D/S Barile tried to stop her. Courtney Price refused to stop for D/S Barile. Courtney Price then fell in the front yard, D/S Barile tried to place her in handcuffs, and she began to kick and scream. I assisted D/S Barile in securing Courtney Price. Once she was placed in handcuffs, she continued to kick and tried to grab our clothes and hand with her hands behind her back. Courtney Price’s legs were also secured, in reference to her trying to kick deputies. Courtney Price had to be carried to the patrol car. Once at the patrol car she refused to get inside and tried to spit at Deputies. Courtney Price had to be assisted inside. While heading to the jail Courtney Price started to bang her head and kick the cage inside my patrol car. Before D/S Barile made contact with Courtney Price, he secured Sahmi Green. S. Green was asked numerous times to leave the property and he continued to return.” […] Green was arrested on trespassing and battery charges. N. Jones was baker-acted. At the jail, Courtney Price had to be placed in the restraint chair.
SWAT Team Deployed, But a Suicide Is Not Averted
The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office’s SWAT team was deployed the early morning of Feb. 11, before 7 a.m., at 12 Summerwind Circle in Palm Coast. The sheriff’s Office had received a call about Klaus May, 81, the resident at the address, having told his son that he was having difficulty breathing and was going to kill himself with a gun. The Sheriff’s Office established a perimeter around the house. Dispatch made multiple attempts to contact May by phone. There was no answer. Multiple public announcements were made toward the residence directing May to exit the residence or call 911. The SWAT team deployed robotics to enter the residence. The robotic unit discovered May on the ground in the garage with a bullet wound to the chest. The hallway just outside the garage had a table with a suicide note, various medical information and instructions. A Walther PPK 9mm pistol was located. Detectives and the medical examiner subsequently responded.
Alcoholized Gummy Bears at Indian Trails Middle School
A 12-year-old boy at Indian Trails Middle School got a 10-day suspension after bringing a Tupperware bowl containing tequila. The boy was pulled from his 4th period class by a sheriff’s deputy and the school’s assistant principal, who examined the boy'[s book bag and found the container. The boy initially said he’d found the container at a bus stop, and that it contained gummy bears, though they were all sticky. He said he tasted one but didn’t like it. He tried handing out several of the gummy bears during lunch period, according to other students. The boy invited one student to smell the contents of the container. “It smells like alcohol,” the girl told him. “I sprayed cologne in here,” the boy replied. The girl would not believe him. “It’s tequila,” he then told her, according to a sheriff’s report. “All gummy bears had been discarded either by consumption or thrown away by other students,” the report states. Two students were given breathalizer tests. The tests revealed 0 percent alcohol content.
A Deer Crashes Into Sub Base Shop Window
On Feb. 10, a deer ran into the window at Sub Base and Bagel Place in the Staples shopping center in Palm Coast, smashing the window. The incident happened before opening time. Shortly after Rosalba Zadata, owner of Sub Base, arrived and opened the business doors, the incident was confirmed. The deer appeared to have cut itself while coming through the window (there was a large amount of blood on the floor). The deer also appeared to have a broken leg, as the leg appeared to be hanging and swinging freely. The deer appeared unable to use its rear left leg and appeared to struggle while trying to evade law enforcement, according to a sheriff’s report. “Due to the animals injuries it was decided to put the animal down. Deputy Chambers was able to pin the deer on the floor,” the reporting deputy writes. “I was able to get a rope around the neck of the deer and able to drag the deer out of the business. Once outside the business, the deer attempted to escape. While outside I was assisting in restraining the deer and handed my agency issued weapon to Deputy Celico so that tie could fire a round (he had a better shot angle). Deputy Celico fired a single round, striking the animal in the back of the head. The deer continued to struggle, at which time I took my agency weapon back and fired two rounds striking the animal in the neck area. After the shots were fired the animal continued to attempt to get up and run away, at which time Corporal Koep fired a
single round. […] It should be noted that there were no subjects around besides Sheriffs Office Deputies when the animal was being put down. The city was notified and responded to remove the deer shortly after.”
