Feces-flinging ‘white power’ man sought

The Daily Progress and NBC29 list a shocking litany of crimes allegedly committed by the Albemarle man who somehow worked the system well enough to remain free of jail to get into an automobile chase that resulted in the death of a Colonial Heights police officer.

Douglas Michael "Beefy" Brown Jr., 36, now sought for stealing a van and provoking the crash that killed off-duty officer James H. Sears last Saturday, has a record that reportedly includes inhaling freon while riding a moped, flinging urine and feces at a jail guard, credit card forgery, auto theft, resisting arrest with pepper spray, and tricking Charlottesville's SWAT team into believing he'd barricaded himself into a Hogwaller house in March 2001.

The Progress reports that the possibly armed and dangerous white man sports a tattoo reading "white power" on his abdomen. Authorities believe Brown is hiding out in Albemarle County. Left unexplained just yet was what the Barboursville-area man was doing out of jail.
