Two arrested after car chase on Newberry Road


Raquese Kylique Greenwood, 25, and Sashell Williams, 21, were arrested early this morning after a car chase on Newberry Road.

According to the arrest reports, Greenwood was driving a car that was seen entering the Sawbuck neighborhood, accessed via NW 115th Way from Newberry Road. Alachua County Sheriff’s deputies initiated an increased patrol of the neighborhood and later saw the car leaving the neighborhood at a high rate of speed before the driver allegedly turning off the vehicle’s lights while traveling east along W. Newberry Road at speeds exceeding 80 mph.

The car was pulled over at Tower Road and a probable cause search, based on marijuana in plain view, reportedly found a cigar wrapper containing a substance that tested positive for MDPV in the driver’s side door pocket. Post Miranda, Greenwood reportedly denied knowledge of the narcotics and said he had borrowed the car from a friend; however, he reportedly declined to provide a name for that person.

Williams allegedly got out of the car and started walking away when the car was pulled over. During the search of the vehicle, deputies reportedly found a purse on the front passenger seat containing Williams’ driver’s license and EBT card, along with a folded paper containing rock-like pieces that tested positive for MDPV. Post Miranda, she reportedly denied any knowledge of the narcotics and said she was aware of the presence of law enforcement after the car was pulled over, but she decided to walk away because the car “wasn’t right.”

Greenwood has been charged with possession of a controlled substance without a prescription and reckless driving and was released on his own recognizance to court services for substance abuse treatment. He is on probation from a domestic battery conviction last year.
