Demarcus Foster free on pre-trial release; drugs, gun, reckless driving, evading arrest

18-year-old Demarcus Foster was jailed on June 4th after police saw him speeding out of a parking lot on Merritt Boulevard. Police began to follow Foster, who stopped his vehicle in the middle of the roadway near Almeda Street and yelled out of the driver’s side window that he needed to get somewhere because his car was breaking down. He tried to wave police by, but instead, the police activated their emergency lights. Police asked Foster to step out of the vehicle, and he began pacing and sweating profusely. He spoke quickly, telling police he was acting strange because he “ain’t got no L’s.” The officer asked him to specify what an “L” was, and he said it meant his driver’s license.

The officer asked Foster to relax and sit on the hood of the patrol car. He complied with the command, but when the officer attempted to search Foster’s vehicle, he sat up and said, “You ain’t gotta do all that.” Officers saw a 9mm Ruger Handgun in plain view on the driver’s side floorboard and attempted to place Foster in handcuffs, but he pushed off the officer’s neck and chest, knocking off the body camera, and took off running. The officer told Foster to stop running, but he continued until he was tased. Once in custody, police found half an ecstasy pill and a small bag of crack/cocaine in Foster’s front pocket.

The vehicle plates displayed did not match the vehicle, Foster was driving a Nissan Sentra, but the plates belonged to a Ford Fiesta. Once at booking, Foster told police he ran because he has pending gun charges in another county, and he thought the current incident would affect that. He also stated that he knew he would be pulled over when he sped out of the parking lot and “screeched” his tires.
