Marlon Brown American Citizen ran down, run over, crushed and killed by DeLand police officer James Harris.
The vehicular homicide happened Wednesday 5/8 morning near South Delaware Avenue and West Beresford Avenue in DeLand FL.
According to the FHP, Volusia County sheriff's deputies tried to pull over a car for a seatbelt violation, but the driver, 38-year-old Marlon Brown wouldn't stop, so the Volusia Co Deputy terminated the pursuit. Police policy does not allow officers to give chase or pursue drivers for seatbelt violations.
Two DeLand police officers heard the radio call saying Brown was not stopping and the pursuit was terminated. These two officers then got behind Brown insighting another pursuit. Mr Brown jumped out of his car and ran away on foot, FHP said.
25 year old Officer James Harris then left the roadway with his patrol car drove over one hundred fifty (150') feet through a backyard garden and chainlink fence, running over Mr Brown crushing him under the fence and patrol car. Marlon Brown was pronounced dead at the scene.
Officer Harris has been put on administrative leave.
