Saturday night chase doesn’t end well for suspects

A vehicle chase, traffic stop and subsequent foot chase led to the arrest of three suspects late Saturday night in the Salisbury Mall area off Lash Drive and Statesville Boulevard.

Salisbury Police were assisted by Alcohol Law Enforcement agents investigating drug activity in the area.


Reports said Salisbury Police arrested Warren Antonio Still, 31, of 925 E. Lafayette St. and charged him with assault with a deadly weapon (his car) on a government official, fleeing to elude arrest with a motor vehicle, resisting and delaying a public officer and driving while impaired.

He was placed in the Rowan County Detention Center under $20,000 bond.

Others involved included Darius M. Robertson, 21, of 445 Jackson Road, who was charged with fleeing officers on foot during a traffic stop. His bond was set at $1,000 for resisting a public officer.

Meanwhile, the ALE charged Eric Tyrone Alexander, 37, of 641 Statesville Blvd., Apt. 1001, with possession of cocaine and resisting a public officer.

Reports said Still’s 1991 Cadillac Deville initially refused to stop for blue lights and a siren of Salisbury Police, who pursued the car for having no headlights.

The car eventually was stopped. Still reportedly jumped from the car without putting it into park. The Cadillac rolled back, almost striking Officer J.R. Cable and pinning him between his patrol car and the suspect’s car.

That’s when the suspects took off on foot.

In other law enforcement reports:

• The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office charged Alexa Suzanne Randall, 16, with resisting a public officer.

Deputy M.S. Murray was trying to return Randall, reported as a runaway, back to her residence when she resisted, reports said. She was arrested, and her bond was set at $500.

• The Sheriff’s Office also charged a Salisbury couple with misdemeanor larceny Saturday.

Linda D. Gomez, 52, and Juan V. Gomez, 60, both of 5030 Gold Hill Road, are accused of stealing $500 worth of items from a home on St. Peters Church Road.

They reportedly stole four concrete planters, two metal tables, Christmas decorations, two car tail lights, four vintage horse-drawn plows, a bicycle, a bicycle seat and a bucket of scrap metal.

Each of the Gomezes was placed under $500 bond.
