18-year-old and two juveniles arrested on gun charges

Calvin Brasby


Domitree G Bacon, 17, Calvin Arkell Brasby, Jr., 18, and Mikael Immanuel Fuye, 16, were arrested early Saturday morning after three guns were found in their vehicle.

A Gainesville Police Department officer conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle, which was driven by Fuye. Bacon was reportedly the front passenger, and Brasby was the rear passenger. The officer reported that he heard a clunk from the back of the car as he approached it and asked if there was someone in the back of the vehicle. As he looked in that area, he reportedly saw part of a pistol hammer, then a closer look reportedly revealed two pistols in the rear of the vehicle.

Once the occupants were removed from the vehicle, officers reportedly found two pistols in the rear compartment of the car and then found a third pistol stuffed into the rear passenger seat. A K-9 alerted to firearms in the driver’s seat, front passenger seat, and rear passenger seat.

Brasby was previously arrested in March and charged with carrying a concealed weapon without a permit and possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana. He is on pre-trial release with the condition that he not possess any firearms. He has been charged with a new count of possession of a concealed weapon without a permit and was released on $5,000 bail.

Fuye was previously arrested in February and charged with burglary of an unoccupied vehicle. Further information on that case and the current case is unavailable because juvenile records are not public. Further information is not available regarding Bacon.

Articles about arrests are based on reports from law enforcement agencies. The charges listed are taken from the arrest report and/or court records and are only accusations. All suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. 

  • Check out the other recent stories on here. Very serious crimes with painfully low bond amounts. It appears that ‘catch and release’ made it here and the SAO is playing along. Even 10 years ago these charges would have reflected at least a $25k bond. What is happening to our city? Does anyone care anymore?

    • Low bail is just the start. They will probably drop the first charge on the 18 year old or plead it down to some sort of ‘please promise you’ll never do it again’. If he keeps going the way he’s going, by 21 he will use one of those guns in a dispute and the family of some completely innocent bystander will be the people paying the price.

      • That legislation that wipes clean the records of juveniles I think is a bad idea…maybe wipe it at
        Age 23 if they can stay out of trouble 2 years after
        They reach 21…We don’t need criminals being able to get concealed weapons permits and buying guns and doing what that juvenile did in Texas. I don’t
        Know if Desantis signed it… mental illness is a big
        Problem and we need to prevent people who have
        Been Baker Acted or who are not of sound minds from getting access to
        Guns. These youth are some bad seed.

        • I said “juvenile in Texas”…he was able to purchase a rifle @ 18. In Florida, the age is 21 to
          Purchase a rifle.
