Dinzel Baynard starts off his crime career with a bang; slew of heroin dealing charges along with fleeing a cop in a stolen BMW at the tender age of fifteen
SEAFORD, DEL.- The Delaware State Police reports that they have arrested 15-year-old Dinzel Baynard, of Seaford, Del., for theft and drugs after he led troopers on a short pursuit.
The incident occurred around 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 25, 2016, as a two-person state police patrol unit, was driving northbound on Coverdale Road and observed a vehicle traveling southbound above the posted speed limit. As the troopers turned around to attempt to stop the car, it accelerated away and turned right onto Hasting Farms Road. The car continued through the stop sign at Old Furnace Road, with the state troopers actively pursuing, and then turned westbound on Middleford Road where it came to a stop outside of the Middleford Deli.
As the troopers exited the patrol vehicle and began to approach the 2003 BMW 525, the operator pulled the car away and began fleeing at a high rate of speed toward Sussex Highway. The troopers followed the vehicle with their lights and sirens activated and as they approached Sussex Highway (US13), the suspect vehicle began to pass westbound traffic on the right shoulder that was stopped for the red signal light. The BMW entered the intersection where it collided with the rear of a northbound 2016 Nissan Sentra being operated by a 23-year-old female from Belmont, New Hampshire. The Nissan then struck the rear of a northbound 2010 Dodge Ram pickup truck being operated by a 53-year-old female from Goldsboro, Maryland. Both of those vehicles were able to come to a stop after colliding with one another.
