Felonious Assault
On Jan. 2, 2012, at approximately 11 p.m., Manassas City police officers responded to Prince William Hospital, located at 8700 Sudley Road, regarding an unruly male who had armed himself with a pair of scissors. Officers were enroute when they were then advised that the male stabbed a visitor in the face with the scissors and was threatening others.

Upon the officers’ arrival, they encountered the male, identified as Marlin Bradford Summerville, 32, ordering him to drop the scissors. Summerville complied with officers’ command but was then shot with a stun device (T.A.S.E.R) after picking the scissors back up off the ground. The T.A.S.E.R device had no affect on Summerville.

Summerville exited the hospital still carrying the scissors, when he was shot again with the T.A.S.E.R, with negative results. Summerville was walking on Hospital Way when another officer arrived on scene and shot him with his T.A.S.E.R.  Pepper spray was also used on Summerville, after showing no reaction to the T.A.S.E.R. device.

A Manassas City Police K-9 unit was called to the scene but Summerville, after being bit, lifted the dog while it was still attached to his arm. Officers shot Summerville with the T.A.S.E.R. again, causing him to fall to the ground._While Summerville was on the ground, officers, utilizing a ballistic shield, managed to pin Summerville’s hands to his chest. Summerville was still non-compliant so one officer struck him numerous times on his right wrist with an expandable baton (ASP) until Summerville released the scissors.

Marlin Summerville was placed under arrest and transported back to the hospital for evaluation. While back at the hospital, Summerville became combative again, forcing the officers to T.A.S.E.R. him again. Immediately after being cleared from the hospital, Summerville was transported to the Prince William County Adult Detention Center, where he was held with no bond on charges of Malicious Wounding, Assault on Law Enforcement, Attempted Escape by Force, Abduction, Assault & Battery on a Health Care provider, Disorderly Conduct on Hospital Grounds, Obstruction of Justice and Resisting Arrest.

The officer stopped the vehicle, when the driver identified himself as Preston Daniels. Further investigation revealed that Daniels’ real name was Christopher Lee Rice, 24, of Chantilly, VA.

Rice was placed under arrest and charged with False Identification to Law Enforcement and Obstruction of Justice. During a search of his person, officers found a crack cocaine pipe and a plastic bag containing a green leafy substance, which turned out to be synthetic marijuana, also known as “K-2.”
