Roger Wayne Beasley Jr., 30, apparently was so focused on getting away from a traffic stop last Wednesday that he didn't notice marked cars parked outside the Harrison County (Miss.) Law Enforcement Training Academy building on Leggett Drive, Biloxi Police Chief John Miller told the Sun Herald.

Beasley turned on to Chalmers Drive, jumped out of his vehicle and ran off, so an officer jumped out of his car and ran after him.

"He got to the door and was about to go through," Miller said.

He was outnumbered.

Police arrested Beasley on charges of possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine, resisting arrest, no driver's license, careless driving, improper lane change, resisting arrest and failure to comply.

Capt. Crunch @ 7/23/2014 8:22 AM

He also should have been charged with "being stupid in public".

Hey, cut the guy some slack...he probably couldn't read the big sign he ran passed saying that was the Mississippi Police Academy!! ;-o

Yes almost as stupid as shooting a young man dead for answering his door with a remote control in his hand, or throwing a grenade at a baby because you thought a desk was blocking your access.

Capt. Crunch @ 7/23/2014 5:04 PM

Hey Lenny, is this stupid guy related to you ?

TheRookie @ 7/23/2014 7:41 PM

Hey Capt. good posts. Got to excuse Lenny he's trying to gain his balance off of his training wheels of life. He must have been on the receiving end of the old school Law Enforcement of Thump Therapy. Man I loved them days.

Jennifer @ 7/24/2014 8:28 AM

OK, that's just plain funny.

Johnny Law @ 7/25/2014 7:28 AM

The guy is probably Lenny's brother! Thats why he is so sensitive! Come to think of it.....Lenny always defends the criminal.....probably more family members.
