MARYLAND STATE POLICE BEAT: Repeat offender DUI Driver Darren Cole fought the Law and the Law Won

Daren Edward Cole DWI assault on trooper works as cook at St. Mary’s College Feb. 16, 2019 Maryland State Police, Leonardtown.

ST. MARY’S CITY, MD. – Maybe it was a case of too much cooking sherry when rustling up grub for students at St. Mary’s College of Maryland. After all, a long day of cooking can summon up that old desire for imbibing that song writer and singer Roger Miller penned in his lyrics, “Grape Wine in Mason Jar” in ‘Dang Me’.  Possibly repeat offender DWI driver Darren Cole was listening to the old tune written by Sonny Curtis,  ‘I Fought The Law and The Law Won” all day at work in the kitchen:

“Robbin’ people with a six-gun

I fought the law and the law won

I fought the law and the law won

I lost my girl and I lost my fun

I fought the law and the law won

I fought the law and the law won”

Maryland State Police report that on February 16, 2019 at approximately 10:30 p.m., Trooper Jonathan Powis conducted a traffic stop near College Drive, St. Mary’s City, Md.

The trooper had contact with the fumes arising from the driver, identified as Darren Edward Cole, 31, of 17453 Mount Zion Church Road, St. Inigoes, Md., which revealed a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage.

 Further investigation revealed that Cole was operating the vehicle while under the influence of alcohol.

Not content to be heading to the slammer for being allegedly intoxicated while driving, Cole decided to up the ante and make more challenging the effort needed on his attorney’s part when he eventually found himself before a Judge.

Police say that while being handcuffed, Cole began to resist arrest. Cole assaulted Tpr. Powis then attempted to beat feet, but Cole was quickly apprehended by the fleetfooted flatfoot.

 Cole was transported to the Hotel St. Mary’s and charged with Driving under the Influence of Alcohol, Resisting Arrest & Second Degree Assault and ten other charges too numerous to mention in a police brief, otherwise, it would not be brief.

Cole has a pending pot case coming up on March 19, 2019, in District Court from Nov. 24, 2018 when he was issued a citation for Deadhead in possession of less than 10 grams by Maryland State Trooper Manning.

Darren Cole entered a guilty plea in a plea deal with St. Mary’s States Attorney Richard Fritz on Feb. 1, 2018 to a charge of violating a court ordered Ex-Parte and protective order which had been granted to a victim. THE DEAL: In view of the crime causing his probation to be violated, Cole was sentenced to jail for seventeen days.

Evidently Cole can’t make it out of St. Mary’s City without attracting the attention of a police officer as St. Mary’s Sheriff Jason Smith bagged Cole for DWI on Dec. 6, 2015, as he operated a 1998 Volkswagen on Mattapany Road at College Drive in St. Mary’s City.

In a plea deal with States Attorney Fritz on June 22, 2016, Cole was given a verdict of Probation Before Judgment with no fine and four days in jail. Court records show that he violated his parole on May 9, 2018.  Cole was represented by free attorneys paid for by the taxpayers whose lives he endangered by driving while intoxicated.

Driving while suspended, Cole wound up with another plea deal in 2008 and a trip to the Hotel St. Mary’s for sixty days following his arrest by Maryland State Trooper Eric Evans.
