According to the report, another subject was on scene and identified as 18-year-old Deonte White, of Salisbury. Authorities say White attempted to remove the vehicle from the scene, but he was stopped by officers. Law enforcement says a search of the vehicle revealed a loaded, stolen handgun, an amount of crack cocaine that was indicative of distribution, scales, a small amount of marijuana, and cash.

Deputies say Smullen-Parsons continued to be combative and resisted arrest until being taken to the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office. During a secondary search at that location, deputies say an amount of oxycodone that was indicative of distribution was found, after being concealed in his buttocks. 

Smullen-Parsons was charged with  felony CDS charges, felony gun charges, assault, resisting arrest, and served with two arrest warrants (possession with intent to distribute crack, possession with intent to distribute oxycodone, possession of a firearm in a drug trafficking crime, possession of a regulated firearm by a prohibited person, possession of cds, assault 2nd degree, resisting arrest.  obstructing and hindering, and fleeing and eluding). 

White was charged with obstructing and hindering and attempting to remove evidence from a scene that would be used in court.
