24-year-old Jermavyon Levonte Frierson almost drove into a pedestrian behind Willie B’s Kitchen and Lounge before running through a flashing red light at the 9th Avenue North and Garfield Street intersection early December 30th. Officers observed this and tried to conduct a traffic stop, but Frierson was able to evade them successfully. Officers discovered the address registered to the vehicle, went there, and located the owner to ask about the incident. The registered owner went upstairs to get Frierson, who then advised officers that he fled because he did not have a license and that he had marijuana on him. Frierson also noted that he had discarded the marijuana. Officers told Frierson that he almost struck a citizen when he was fleeing police, and he replied, “Yeah, I seen him.” The registered owner told officers that Frierson came home with a backpack and consented to a search through it, but they could not locate it. Frierson was taken into custody for tampering with evidence and evading arrest.
