DWI HIT PARADE: Boozing while cruising with a gun was the gateway to jail for Tramelle Horsey
BALTIMORE, MD. – Maryland Transportation Authority Police report that an MDTA Police officer arrested a Baltimore man for DUI and illegal possession of a gun during a traffic stop on I-95 on Feb. 4, 2020. The driver had been ordered by a Judge in a domestic violence case to surrender any firearms.
The MDTA Police charged Tramelle Cortez Horsey, 36, (DOB 10/01/1983) of 4115 Idaho Avenue, Baltimore, Md., with driving a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, being a prohibited person in possession of a handgun and other weapon and traffic charges.
At approximately 2:48 a.m., MDTA Police Officer Glyndar Richards stopped a 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer on southbound I-95 for speeding and crossing & straddling lane lines.
MDTA Police report that when the officer approached the 2006 Chevy, he observed a handgun and ammunition on the driver’s side floorboard. The officer also smelled the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from the driver. The driver was taken into custody without incident and transported to the Baltimore Central Booking & Intake Center.
A court order issued by a Baltimore City District Court Judge on May 3, 2019, in a case of domestic violence, prohibited Horsey from horsing around with any firearms until the magic date of May 2, 2020, which, according to the calendar and the arrest records of the courts, reveal that Horsey failed to comply with the order of the court.
When charged in Baltimore City Circuit Court with robbery, theft, and violation of probation, Horsey got a plea deal on Feb. 27, 2013, when he entered an Alford Plea to second-degree assault and violation of his probation. THE DEAL: a verdict of Probation Before Judgement and Probation After Conviction. A sentence of five years in prison with four years, eleven months and eleven days were suspended. Three years of probation were added.
In 2007, Horsey skated on five counts of illegal possession of a handgun when he was found not guilty on July 8, 2009. Attorney Margaret Mead was the lead attorney for Horsey.
