Stafford, VA. A suspect was arrested on Sunday night by deputies with the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office for driving under the influence and several other charges following a disturbance at a 7-Eleven.

On February 2, 2020, at approximately 10:53 p.m., Deputy Forman and Deputy Deasy responded to reports of a disturbance at the 7-Eleven located at 327 Deacon Road. They located the suspect vehicle pulling into the parking lot and made contact with the driver who was identified as Eric Dunlap, 46, of Fredericksburg. There were firearms in plain view in the vehicle and Dunlap was wearing ballistic body armor protection.

Deputies detected the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from the driver’s person. The driver told deputies he had recently been drinking. Field sobriety tests were conducted and a breath test was administered.

Deputy Deasy also made contact with the complainant who explained that the suspect had entered the 7-Eleven earlier that day and was yelling and causing a disturbance. The suspect then stomped on the complainant’s foot. Both individuals left the store and drove away in separate vehicles.

For the next hour and a half, the complainant observed the suspect driving up and down his street, passing his residence numerous times. The complainant then reported the incident to the Sheriff’s Office.

The suspect was taken into custody and incarcerated at Rappahannock Regional Jail without bond on charges of driving under the influence, stalking, disorderly conduct, assault and battery, and possession of a firearm while intoxicated.
