A suspect is facing multiple felony charges stemming from a disturbance which occurred at a Stafford residence Sunday evening.

On April 11 at 7:09 p.m., deputies met with a victim reporting a disturbance which occurred on Green Acre Drive. The victim advised the suspect, Anthony Mammarella, 38, of Stafford, had fled the scene.

Deputy A.T. Leckemby was responding to the call when he observed a vehicle matching the description of the suspect’s vehicle. Deputy Leckemby ran the vehicle’s license plate number which was found to be registered to Mammarella. A traffic stop was initiated and Mammarella was detained. He smelled of alcoholic beverages and had slurred speech. Deputy J.J. Yenchak administered field sobriety tests while deputies continued to investigate the disturbance.

The investigation revealed Mammarella was involved in a verbal altercation with the victim. The argument continued to the front door where Mammarella threw a bag of trash towards the victim who was holding a young child. Mammarella then retreated back inside the home to the master bedroom. He retrieved a firearm and fired a shot within proximity of the victim who was still holding the child. She was able to escape to another room at which point Mammarella fired several more shots within the master bedroom.

Mammarella stopped firing and confronted the victim again and struck her in the face. He then fled from the home in his vehicle before being stopped by Deputy Leckemby.

Mammarella was arrested for two counts of felony assault, discharging a firearm in an occupied dwelling, use of a firearm during a commission of a felony, child endangerment, reckless handling of a firearm, assault, driving under the influence, obstruction of justice, and refusal of test. He was held without bond at the Rappahannock Regional Jail.
