A Freehold Borough man was arrested Tuesday night after he allegedly attempted to escape from a law enforcement officer.
Freehold Borough Police have charged Lionel K. Ramey, 48, of Barkalow Avenue, with eluding law enforcement, resisting arrest and possession of a controlled dangerous substance. According to Ramey’s complaint warrant, he refused to stop for a police car that had sirens and lights flashing. Ramey also allegedly attempted to escape from the officer, by getting out of the car while it was still in drive and then getting back in before being stopped.
Once he was stopped by police, Ramey allegedly attempted to resist arrest by trying to get up onto his feet after the law enforcement officer commanded him to get on the ground. The warrant also noted that Ramey used force to resist arrest by tensing his body and forcefully pulling his arm away from the officer while he was being arrested.
Ramey’s drug possession charge comes from Police finding two clear glass vials containing a white rock like substance that is believed to be cocaine.
Ramey has been remanded to the Monmouth County Correctional Institution (MCCI) on $40,000 bail.
