In Custody Death
Chavis Chacobie Carter
August 3, 2012On July 29, 2012 at 9:50 pm a Jonesboro Police Officer was dispatched to Haltom
St. in Jonesboro, Ar., a residential “side
street”, regarding a suspicious vehicle. The caller described the vehicle as suspicious and that it was “riding up and down” the stre
et. Whenthe officer arrived he located a vehicle matching the description relayed by the 911
center. Upon making contact with the driver his driver’s license and identity were
validated. A second passenger, a 19 year old adult was also identified and confirmation of his identity was established. A third passenger (later identified as Chavis Chacobie
Carter) was also contacted who gave the officer the name of “Laryan Bowman”. This
identity could not be confirmed via the law enforcement computer system. Given thefacts and circumstances of the call and the residential nature of the street where thevehicle was spotted and the fact that the vehicle was observed driving down the streetwith its lights off the original officer requested an additional back-up officer to assist.Within a few minutes the second officer arrived and the individuals were asked to exit the
vehicle. Due to the suspicious nature of the stop each occupant was “frisked”
”, not necessarily a full search at this point because
they did not know what theyhad nor if any arrests were to be made. A small amount of marijuana and some small
 plastic bags commonly used to package drugs were discovered in Carter’s pocket at this
time.After this initial contact was made the individual whose identity was un-established (Carter A.K.A. Laryan Bowman) was escorted to the back-up unit and placedin the rear of the car without hand-cuffs. The second officer then spoke with this subjectwho revealed to him his real name Chavis Chacobie Carter. At this point he was left inthe police unit as the officers confirmed his identity and learned that he had an activewarrant out of Mississippi. Contact was reestablished with the driver and other passenger.The driver gave the first responding officer consent to search his vehicle. A search of thevehicle by the officers revealed a set of electronic scales, residual marijuana and a quartsized zip lock bag containing about 3-4 ounces of white crystalline powder (suspected tobe sugar). Upon discovery of the items and confirmation of the warrant the back-upofficer returned to his vehicle where Carter was detained (un-handcuffed), removed himfrom the vehicle cuffed him behind his back and searched his person again. Carter wasthen returned to the rear of the second police unit.The officer then went to the front of the first police unit interviewed the driverand middle passenger further and, having no drugs and no active warrants they werereleased. As the officers then returned to their vehicles to leave the second officer entered
