New DUI charges loom for veteran DUI driver Jarrett L. Davis in crash with police cruiser
GREAT MILLS, MD. One of the first things to go out the window for a drunk driver is judgment. Like seeing a police car heading in your direction and then turning directly into its path. St. Mary’s County Sheriff Tim Cameron reports that on April 25, 2016, at 1:54 A.M. patrol units responded to the reported motor vehicle accident involving a Sheriff’s Deputy on Chancellor’s Run Rd. at Pegg Rd. Great Mills, Md.
Sheriff Cameron reported that Sgt. Harold Young was travelling northbound on Chancellors Run Rd. operating a marked police vehicle, in a non-emergency status, approaching Pegg Road. A 2013 Ford Focus, operated by Jarrett L. Davis, 28, of 21618 Liberty Street, Lexington Park, Md., was traveling southbound on Chancellors Run Road and was attempting to turn left onto Pegg Road failing to yield the right of way.
Both vehicle operators were transported to MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Deputies on the scene determined Davis had a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from his person and appeared to be intoxicated. A blood test for alcohol was administered on Davis at the hospital. Sgt. Young and Davis were treated and have been released from the hospital. Charges are pending against Davis upon results of the blood test being received. Sgt. Sarah Russell investigated the crash.
Davis was arrested in Calvert County by Sheriff’s Deputy C. Childress on Jan. 22, 2011 for DUI. In a plea deal with the Calvert County States Attorney, Davis entered a guilty plea on March 18, 2011, and was given a fine of $235.00 and a sixty-day suspended sentence with Probation Before Judgement. Representing Davis, in that case, was Prince Frederick attorney Theodore P. LeBlanc.
