Man attempts to flee traffic stop, faces 8 charges to include trafficking Methamphetamine


While on patrol in the area of Tamiami Trail and Glancy Lane in Port Charlotte a traffic stop was made. The vehicle pulled into an address on Lasayette Street and the occupants immediately exited and the front seat passenger, identified as Kalvin Bailey, attempted to leave the area of the stop. When Bailey was instructed to stay, members witnessed him toss an item beneath the Jeep that was parked in the driveway of the residence. While waiting for additional units to arrive, Bailey continued to protest the stop and was argumentative about his obligation to stay. Bailey was incapable of following commands and began to venture towards the Jeep, where he had discarded the narcotics. During Bailey’s second attempt to flee and several commands to stop, deputies deployed the taser.


Kalvin Bailey was charged with Trafficking in Methamphetamine, Trafficking in Fentanyl, Possession of Controlled Substance X3, Battery on LEO, Resisting with Violence, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
