Original Story:

Prince William Police are looking for a Washington, D.C. man who is accused of assault and battery on a fire marshal at Bristow Center Drive last Wednesday.

Devaughn Jemar Brown-Gray, 28, of the 1500 block of 16th St SE in Washington, D.C., attempted to hit a Prince William Fire Marshal with his automobile after receiving a parking citation he received Sept. 2 at 3:15 p.m.

Police have been unable to apprehend Brown-Gray who is described as a black male, 6 feet, 280 pounds with a heavy build, black hair and brown eyes. He is wanted for assault & battery on a LEO, eluding police, reckless driving and a parking violation.

According to the police investigation, a Prince William County Fire Marshal was in the area of Bristow Center Drive when he observed an unoccupied vehicle parked in the fire lane, obstructing a fire department water connection.

The fire marshal proceeded to write a parking citation when the owner of the vehicle returned and attempted to leave. The marshal told the driver to exit the vehicle, but instead the accused placed the vehicle in drive and began driving the vehicle towards the fire marshal.

“As the Fire Marshal attempted to move out of the path of the vehicle, the driver stopped then placed the vehicle in reverse. The vehicle then proceeded in reverse into oncoming traffic before eventually driving onto an adjacent sidewalk and stopping,” police spokesperson Officer Jonathan Perok said. “At that point, the driver then attempted flee the area. When the fire marshal attempted to stop the vehicle, the accused continue to flee before driving out of sight.”

Following an investigation, the driver was identified as Brown-Gray and police obtained warrants for his arrest. Attempts to locate the suspect have so far been unsuccessful.
