Convicted felon nabbed with gun in heart of riot area Gun fired as he tossed while fleeing; thugsters began attacking cops
BALTIMORE CITY, MD. — Baltimore police report that a convicted drug dealer was nabbed with a gun in broad daylight in the heart of the Baltimore riot zone on May 4th at 2:20 pm. In the process of running from police, the thug tossed his gun, causing the firearm to discharge. He then was aided by fellow thugs who started blasting the officers with bottles and bricks until the cavalry showed up.
Police say that a citizen informed them that a local thug was carrying a gun in the area of North Ave. and Pennsylvania Ave.
The CitiWatch was notified about the tip from the citizen and a report to the officer about the suspect being spotted. Police officers converged on the area, according to the police report, and as they approached the suspect, he beat feet westbound on North Ave.
Police say that the suspect kept reaching for his waistband as he ran, a location typically used by bad guys to store their guns and other contraband. Officers reported seeing the suspect toss a black handgun to the ground causing it to discharge one round, which is always a great sound effect in an area in which 250 businesses were destroyed by looters, rioters and associated thugs just one week earlier.
At this point, police reached out and collared the once-fleet-footed hooligan and identified him as Robert Edward Tucker.
Given the location of the arrest as being in the middle of a cesspool of undocumented shoppers, now fully unafraid of law officers unless they have tanks and assault weapons, a crowd formed to assault the police officers.
The thugs pelted the cops with an assortment of debris.
“A large crowd began to form around our location and began to throw objects at police. Bricks, water bottles, bleach bottles, and cups. A signal 13 (officer needs assistance) was dropped on the location and more units responded to help disperse the crowd and help contain the crime scene,” said one officer in the police report.
“Tucker began to scream and carry on as if he was injured and or shot,” said the officer in the report.
The Academy Award nominee soon had the wind knocked out of sails when the Medics on the scene examined him and advised him that he had not yet suffered any injuries.
In spite of the assessment of the medics that this thug had not yet been injured, he was taken to the University of Maryland Hospital anyway for the treatment of his non-wounds.
After a second examination had revealed all of his injuries were encased in his feeble pea brain, Tucker was transported to the slammer.
He was charged with possession of a Ruger Blackhawk .357 handgun; possession of two live rounds all in spite of the fact that he had been convicted of illegal possession of a firearm by a minor and possession of drugs.
Tucker may yet be able to star in America’s Got Talent as police are seeking the surveillance camera footage from the area. He has to hope the cameras got his good side.
