On September 23, 2016 at approximately 7:00 a.m. an officer on Route 10 Southbound observed a black Ford Explorer doing 77 miles an hour in a posted 55 mile per hour zone. The officer activated his emergency equipment at Route 10 South and Ritchie Highway North, but the vehicle refused to stop. The officer pulled alongside the vehicle and motioned to the driver to pull over; at this point the driver slowed his speed to 40 miles an hour but did not stop, he motioned to the officer that he was on his cell phone. The driver of the vehicle called 911 and spoke to both AACoPD and MSP dispatch; he stated his intention to refuse to stop for Anne Arundel County Police. The driver advised he believed AACoPD did not have jurisdiction, and went on to state he felt he was being, “racially profiled” and AACoPD did not have authority to stop him. Both AACoPD and MSP dispatch advised the driver to stop and he refused. The vehicle eventually had to stop for traffic at a stop light in front of Marley Station Mall. Officers approached the vehicle, they did not have their weapons drawn and conducted the encounter as a regular traffic stop had the vehicle stopped initially. A Lieutenant working the shift immediately asked for a car with a dash cam to respond to the area to document the incident. A camera car arrived minutes later. MSP was on scene as well as Anne Arundel County Police Supervision.

The driver refused to comply with commands and refused to produce identification or get out of the vehicle. The driver eventually agreed to get out of the car once supervision and the camera car arrived, but still would not produce identification or sign the traffic charges.

The driver was arrested and transported to Eastern District. While at Eastern District the driver refused to give his real name and identified himself by his self-given Moorish Nation name of Kadarighazel. He advised officers that it would get “physical” if they attempted to fingerprint or photograph him. Through investigative means officers were able to positively identify the driver as Antwone Nathaniel Payne, DOB 1/7/1985 from Bishop Avenue in Brooklyn.
It should be noted that Payne was taken in to custody without injury to himself or officers. He will be charged with the following;

  • Driving without a license
  • Driving suspended
  • Speeding
  • Unsafe lane change
  • Talking on a cellphone while operating a vehicle
  • Failure to produce ID
  • Failure to produce registration
  •  Giving a fictitious name to law enforcement

Due to his continued non-compliance there is no current booking photo available.
