Perimeter Secured, K9 Deployed, Two Arrested After Fleeing Howell Police
On 06/22/20 at approximately 1:50 a.m., Patrolman Davison attempted to stop a Honda Civic, which was driving erratically on Rt.9, in the area of Aldrich Road. As Ptl. Davison initiated his motor vehicle stop, the vehicle entered the shoulder portion of the highway and slowed its speed, however suddenly accelerated entering the Freewood Acres section of the Township, with total disregard of the signal to stop (emergency lights/siren). After a short maneuver through the east side of Freewood Acres, the vehicle significantly accelerated as it crossed over Georgia Tavern Road, now onto Windeler Road. The vehicle ultimately lost control on Windeler Road, near its intersection with Aldrich Road, and left the roadway into the wooded area of the Manasquan Resevoir.
Upon the vehicle coming to rest, the male front passenger, later identified as Tyrell Marable (Age:23 of Freehold), exited and ran into the wooded area of the Manasquan Reservoir. The driver, later identified as a 17-year old male of Freehold, exited the vehicle and appeared to lay on the ground initially to only then regain his stance and also run into the wooded area, as did Marable.
Ptl. Davison and back-up units established a perimeter of the immediate area and summoned the assistance of K9 Sgt. Bondarew nad partner Vito, who responded shortly thereafter. After a brief track into the wooded area, Sgt. Bondarew/K9 Vito were able to successfully locate both suspects in the wooded area, who both still refused to comply with officers’ commands. K9 Sgt. Bondarew deployed K9 Vito, which resulted in the apprehension of Marable. Subsequent to Marable’s apprehension, the 17-year old male driver was able to also be arrested without further incident. Marable was provided with medical assistance at the scene due to the K9 apprehension, at which time he refused further medical attention. As both subjects were being apprehended a search of the vehicle was conducted, which yielded a bottle of champagne on the floor of the passenger side.
Marable was also found to be in possession of suspected Marijuana on his person. Marable was criminally charged with Resisting Arrest/Eluding Officer, Obstructing Administration of Law, and Possession of Marijuana. In addition to thirteen (13) related moving violations, the 17-year old male driver was charged (Juvenile Procedures) Resisting Arrest/Eluding Officer, Obstructing Administration of Law, and Driving While Intoxicated.
Marable was transported to the Monmouth County Correctional Institution as per his criminal charges and the 17-year old male was released to the custody of his mother. The vehicle was towed from the scene and impounded accordingly.
This is yet another example of how the officers of the Howell Police Department remain steadfast in their diligent efforts to detect/apprehend impaired drivers on our roadways in a manner consistent with proper training/policy, while having the safety of the community always be the priority.
Both subjects are considered innocent until proven guilty in the appropriate court venue.
