Prince George’s Police report that on July 15, 2015, at about 5:40 pm, the officer and his partner, who was driving, were out on patrol on Todd Drive in Temple Hills, Md.

They were focusing on this area due to a recent rise in reported home break-ins. The officers spotted Harvell sitting in a car. The officers knew Harvell didn’t live in the neighborhood and had been arrested on July 4, 2015, on a possession with intent to distribute charge.

The officer in the passenger seat got out of the cruiser to try to speak with Harvell. The suspect wouldn’t answer the officer’s questions and wouldn’t provide his identification. The officer opened the car door, but the suspect slammed it shut. The officer then reached into the window to try to keep him from fleeing. That’s when Harvell put his car in gear, engaging the Honda’s automatic seatbelt which became entangled around the officer’s arm.

Police say that Harvell sped off, the acceleration tightening the seat belt. The officer was hanging from the side of the car for about 100 yards before the suspect crashed into a tree. The officer was thrown to the ground. Harvell then ran away. The officer tried to chase after him but had to stop due to a broken leg. A massive search is underway for the suspect.  Law enforcement along the East Coast are on the lookout for Harvell.

Harvell, who lives at 6805 Tall Oak Drive in Temple Hills, was charged in Prince Georges County on July 5, 2015 with dealing drugs by Prince Georges Police Officer Campbell. A court date for that charge is set for July 29, 2015.

Harvell was indicted in Prince Georges County Circuit Court on June 9, 2015 for speeding, fleeing and eluding from a police officer, possession with the intent to sell drugs and other drug charges. The charges stem from an incident which court records say took place on April 24, 2015. Harvell was jailed on the indictment and on July 7th was released from jail when he made bond.

Charges of drug dealing from June 5, 2010 which were dropped in Prince Georges District Court on July 2, 2010 may have been due to two Metropolitan Washington Police Officers not being present for trial, due to one being terminated by District Police and the other having resigned.

Harvell was represented by the Hyattsville office of the Assistant Public Defender, a lawyer provided to many accused drug dealers by Maryland taxpayers.
