WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A felon is back in jail after Wilmington Police arrested him for a series of charges after they say he ran from them early this morning.

WPD spokeswoman Linda Rawley says an officer on patrol noticed a SUV with several people in it parked in a handicap spot at 200 Grass Lane at 1:13 a.m. The officer ran the tag, which returned an inspection violation, an insurance stop and a pick-up order for the plate.

When officers approached the vehicle, Rawley says a man in the backseat jumped out and ran. Police chased the man. Rawley says when they caught Curtis J. Hall Jr., 22, he had a Kel-Tec .380 caliber semi-automatic handgun in his waistband. Police say he also had 1.5 grams of cocaine packaged for sale, a dose of PCP and one gram of marijuana.

Rawley says during his arrest Hall tried to punch an officer. He is charged with possession of a firearm by a felon, carrying a concealed weapon, resisting and officer, assault on an officer and drug charges. He is in jail under $200,000 bond.

    This is evidence that “Gun control measures and laws” mean nothing to those who do not obey the law. Got it !

    It’s AGAINST THE LAW for a felon to poses a firearm…HOW could this happen!?

  • Guest-o-matic says:

    Ol’ Curtis here has a lengthy criminal record to include 6 VIOLENT FELONY convictions and 2 misdemeanor convictions. Curtis likes to break into peoples homes and steal things, he also likes to steal cars and evidently likes the prison life. He’s already spent a few years there as a 20 year old, but evidently the judges decided he was fit to mingle about in society once again. So here he is, back to his old behaviors, getting ready to gleam his pearly whites at the judge for another slap on the wrist.

    When is it going to happen and how long will it take for the judges and the DA’s to realize that certain people should NEVER be placed back into society? When a person like ol’ Curtis here has thoroughly proven his intent to function in society by breaking in peoples homes and stealing things while carrying illegal weapons, his time in that society should be finished…for good.

    After seeing people like Ol’ Curtis with extensive records and violent tendencies constantly put BACK into the general public, there should NEVER be an inkling of a question as to why gun-related violence continues to climb!

    NAACP look who is in trouble again another black felon. Where are you now, why are you not in the media pulling the race card huh? I am surprised your not saying the police were profiling him for being black!

    His dumb a** was parked in handicap spot @ 1:15 in the morning. not many handicap people are out that time in the morning. So he brought that on himself.

    I hope to he** he goes to jail and never sees freedom again! He doesn’t deserve it and to hit an officer that just goes to show you he has no respect for no one!

    No other comment needed.

    This is a prime example that more gun laws would not prevent the criminals from having guns. Criminals will get their guns by whatever means necessary. Unarmed, law abiding citizens would be at the mercy of the criminals, as well as the government.

    The Republictards want semiautomatic gun rights and they got it. No need complaining now

  • guesty says:

    Will the naacp come march because another young black man has decided to become a criminal and continue to commit crimes? Will they come march because a young black man ran and then tried to fight the police?

    No, they only show up when they might get a payout to go away.

    I am sure his family and friends will suddenly appear and say he was turning his life around and around and around. Gets kind of dizzy turning around that many times.

  • taxpayer says:

    the sarcasm of the comment.

  • Guest789 says:

    Just noticed that the felon is receiving much harsher comments than the scumbag drug lord/Lt. LeBlanc. LeBlanc was in a position of power and did much worse and people are calling for prayers for him. Just think about it
