On Thursday, July 14, 2017 at approximately 8:30pm the Stafford Sheriff’s Office received a call in reference to a possible drunk driver in the Ferry Farm neighborhood. The complainant, an off duty sheriff’s detective, witnessed a black Chevy Malibu driving erratically along Jefferson Street. The Malibu struck a mailbox along Jefferson Street and continued out to Ferry Road. The Malibu was observed swerving along Ferry Road before turning onto Market Street. The vehicle stopped in the area of Market Street and North Randolph Road. The driver got out of the vehicle and collapsed. Deputies arrived on scene and quickly discovered that the driver was suffering a heroin overdose. Deputies administered Narcan to the driver. The driver was then transported by rescue to an area hospital where he was treated and released to the custody of deputies.

The driver was identified as Shawn Frederick Bailey, age 53 of King George. Deputy W.J. McWaters charged Bailey with one count of Driving Under The Influence (4th Offense), one count of Possession of a Controlled Substance, one count of Driving on a Revoked License, one count of Driving with a Revoked License while DUI and one count of Possession of Controlled Paraphernalia. Bailey was incarcerated at the Rappahannock Regional Jail with no bond.
