INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (August 1, 2014)– A police chase on the city’s east side ended in the arrest of a serious violent felon, according to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD).

At approximately 4:00 p.m. Friday, an IMPD officer attempted to initiate a traffic stop near the intersection of East 25th St. and North Olney St. for a traffic violation.

The driver of the gray, four-door Chevrolet Malibu refused to stop and led officers on a chase. Officers requested the assistance of a precision immobilization technique (PIT)-certified officer to respond. That officer, while approaching the intersection of E 21st Street and North Shadeland Avenue, attempted a PIT-maneuver. The driver of the fleeing vehicle then rammed the officer’s patrol car and was unsuccessful in stopping the suspect.

The suspect continued to flee and ultimately led officers to the intersection of Ridgewood Dr. and Wellington Ave., where the chase ended after the suspect again rammed the officer’s patrol car and came to a stop in a yard. The suspect exited his vehicle and a short foot pursuit began.

Officers noticed the subject reaching for his waistband and saw him pull out a handgun, which he dropped as he continued to run. At that time, officers continued to give loud, verbal commands to the suspect to stop, while their guns were drawn. The suspect stopped after being cut-off by an officer’s vehicle and officers attempted to place the subject under arrest. The suspect began to physically resist officers and before the officer had an opportunity to holster his weapon, the suspect took the officer to the ground and the officer’s duty weapon accidentally discharged.

No one was injured as a result of that discharge. The suspect continued to resist until he was finally placed into custody.

He was identified by IMPD as Quincy Archer, 23, from Indianapolis.

Officers took into evidence cocaine and drug paraphernalia, found inside the suspect’s vehicle, as well as, a stolen handgun which the suspect dropped while fleeing.

Quincy Archer was preliminary charged with:

  • Possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon
  • Dealing and Possession of Cocaine
  • Criminal Recklessness
  • Leaving the scene of an accident
  • Theft
  • Driving while suspended with a prior conviction

Further charges may be added at a later time by the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office.

Can’t wait for the next SERIOUS FELON to slaughter a family so we can all ask how they got out once again. Great going Indy. You’re more worried about high weeds and grass then these people doing the same crime over and over

  • racist red

    Ok this is hillarious. Imagine that. A black thug selling drugs and carrying a gun. See stereotypes dont make themselves. The black community can thank lil food stamp here trying to get bring baby mama some fried chicken. If it werent for ignorant ass boons like him our crime rate would go waaaaaay down. But hey thats racist because hes black. They planted dope on him.. blah blah blah. Fucking retards. Are you seriously playing that card ?? The race card has been removed from the deck since we got a black president. Always blamming whitey. Gtfo here.

    And he will go to court and will be given a one year sentence and be sent to prison where he will complete a GED and college associates degreee course and throw in he being a good inmate so he gets his time cut in half for that and all said and done he will be out of prison in 2 months.

    • The Man

      I know you had to have used your Obama phone to make your dumb as comment. There’s a special place in hell for someone like you! Oh, and if I knew who you were or where you were at I wouldn’t put on a fake smile. I would tell you to you face that you’re a fucking idiot, and if I could I would pull your food stamps and your subsidized housing so you could go live with your superhero drug dealer. Maybe then you could get hit by a stray bullet!

  • CLUTCH CARGO

    If not for the white people, you fucking niggers would still be in Africa dieing of EBOLA and AIDS. You would also still be living in grass huts just like you did 3000 years ago. You fucking niggers will never change. You can take the nigger out of the jungle, but you can’t take the jungle out of the nigger. So go fuck yourselves you fucking nigger bastards.

  • a real person

    I don’t understand why does everything always go to these racist comments. 1 person does not make a community, and it’s not only black people who gets public assistance, ever single race has ignorant people, and that ignorant person does not make a community. I just hope you don’t raise your kids to be racist, my son does not see the color of people. if that person is a bad person then he’s a bad person regardless of the skin color
