UPDATE: Naked man faces several charges following arrest
 

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- A Wilmington man faces several charges after he was arrested Sunday afternoon for reportedly running naked from his home and firing multiple shots at a vehicle.

Investigators say that at 2:57 p.m. Sunday afternoon 48-year-old Steven Ross may have fired shots inside of his home in the 2600 block of McClammy Street before running outside naked and attempting to shoot at a burgundy car that was driving by.

Witnesses told police that Ross then went back into the home and dressed him self and retrieved a backpack.

As police arrived on scene Ross ran away and after a short chase he was captured, but had apparently hidden his backpack, which officers never found.

Investigators say that Ross had small amounts of narcotics at the time of his arrest.

Ross is being charged with possession of a firearm by a felon, trafficking cocaine, maintaining a vehicle or dwelling with a controlled substance, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, and breaking a city ordinance.

Assault with a dead weapon

grounds to permanently bar him from public housing? Maybe pull any other public assistance he receives as well?

Social Services, Wilmington Housing Authority -- do your job.

Here it is again, another wonder as to WHY are these criminals allowed back into society? I would love to hear a judges response as to WHY they allow these lifetime criminals to encroach..like a roach, back into a lawful society after this kind of history of criminal conduct and BLATANT DISREGARD for the law.

So here he is with 13 felony and 10 misdemeanor convictions, running naked on our streets and shooting at cars. His past convictions entertain a host of drug related, assault related and theft related crimes, but here he is again, high as a kite shooting at passers-by.

One more time folks! Do we REALLY wonder exactly where, who and WHY the gun related violence comes from? Do we REALLY believe restricting gun type, ammo, magazines and instituting more background checks will have ANY effect on CRIMINALS like 48 year old Steven Moss?

This guy too. He has a huge record- I count 24 times.
He seems to have been on both probation and a suspended sentence and they just add to it. I was thinking he must have gave up his friends

Last time he had a chase and about 10 charges and nothing happened that I saw

Antonio Nathan Greene took off running.

While chasing Greene, officers saw him throw several items on the ground that they later identified as bindles of heroin.

Officers caught Greene, 32, and charged him with two counts of possession with intent to sell/deliver heroin and resisting arrest. He was booked into jail under a $10,000 secure bond.

Court records show Greene was charged last year in New Hanover County with driving while license revoked. The Department of Corrections website shows Greene has a criminal history that includes several convictions on drug charges, possession of stolen goods, larceny, breaking and entering and other offenses.

Write to them your comments and feelings...then post their reply to you on this WWAY forum topic:

And they are:
Honorable Sarah Parker, Chief Justice, N.C. Supreme Court, Chair
Honorable John C. Martin, Chief Judge, N.C. Court of Appeals
Honorable Robert Hobgood, Senior Resident Superior Court Judge
Honorable Beth Keever, Chief District Court Judge
Honorable Brad Greenway, District Attorney
Honorable Archie Smith, Clerk of Superior Court

I just did. They can respond to the public about my "comments and feelings" like the rest of us, but they won't. They will sit back, make these "judgements" of release, go home and sleep as they always do while leaving the general public vulnerable to these criminals.

The people are tired of hearing excuses, tired of watching the stupid courtroom games and tired of working hard for a basic living while those that don't...criminally take what they want, when they want and are continually released to do so...over and over and over again.

Don't provide me with another typical governmental response of, "...write to your..." bunch of horsehooie!
