DUID Arrest

A Maryland man will be staying at the Rappahannock Regional Jail through at least Halloween, after he assaulted a deputy during his arrest Saturday morning.

On October 29th at 8:10 a.m. deputies responded to the area of Centreport Parkway and I-95 for a reckless driver. A witness reported a heavily damaged Kia was speeding, cutting vehicles off and driving on the shoulder of the Interstate. The witness relayed the driver of the Kia had pulled over at Centreport Parkway and appeared to be examining the damage on his vehicle.

First Sergeant J.J. Kreider, Deputy F.A. Martinez and Deputy M.E. Gordon arrived and identified the driver as Luke Mancuso, 22. He claimed the accident damage occurred several weeks ago in a parking lot. Mancuso was arrested for DUID and once handcuffed, attempted to escape from the deputies. He unsuccessfully tried to scale the marked patrol vehicle by climbing on the push bumper. As he was being brought back under control, Mancuso kicked one of the deputies. Fortunately, the deputy was not injured during the assault.

A search warrant was obtained and served for Mancuso’s blood. He was charged with DUID, obstruction and assault and battery on law enforcement. Mancuso was held without bond at the Rappahannock Regional Jail.

Driver sober or get pulled over. Thank you to the witness that reported this incident.
