SMH. Detective Brian Stevenson survived 18 years on the Baltimore Police force, investigating shootings, assaults and robberies to die over a parking spot two days before his birthday.
Now 25-year-old Sian James will probably spend the rest of his life trying not to drop the soap.
A man was accused Sunday of fatally striking an off-duty Baltimore police detective in the head during a dispute over a parking space in a crowded nightlife district.
Sian James, 25, was charged with first-degree murder in the Saturday night death of Det. Brian Stevenson. James fled the scene and was caught hours later at a nightclub, police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said.
You killed a cop, then went to the club? Yeah, they’re gonna throw him under the jail.
Stevenson, who would have turned 38 on Sunday, was out with a friend Saturday night celebrating his birthday and pulled into parking spot. James approached the officer after he got out of his vehicle and threw a stone or piece of concrete, hitting the detective in the head, Guglielmi said.
James, who has a history of domestic violence, left the scene with a woman he was with, but was arrested hours later at Mosaic, a downtown nightclub, after police quickly gathered and interviewed witnesses, Guglielmi said.
