A 22-year-old man was charged with driving while impaired after he crashed into a pole at the Sheetz, left the scene and later threatened an officer while at the Pitt County Detention Center.
Tyler Ray Brown, 22, of 803 E. Third Street crashed into a pole at the Sheetz gas station, left the scene and was later stopped at Reade and East Fifth Street at 1:50 p.m. on Sept. 11, according to a weekly review of Pitt County court records.
While at the Pitt County Detention Center, Brown refused to sit or walk and was trying to force his way out of the DWI testing room.
He told an officer, ‘I’m going to kill you when I get out on the streets. I’m going to have my hitman kill you.” He had a strong odor of alcohol on his breath and red, glassy eyes and could not stand up straight. His blood alcohol level was 0.26
