Crawfordville, Florida - August 8, 2011 -

A domestic disturbance led Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office deputies to arrest a 33-year-old Crawfordville woman and a 22-year-old Crawfordville man Sunday, Aug. 7 after deputies investigated a disturbance involving a vehicle at Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Road and Rehwinkel Road in Crawfordville, according to Sheriff David Harvey.

Malaika Shafic Barnes was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and Travis Arterius Spencer was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.

The WCSO received a report of a woman attempting to use her vehicle to injure a male victim. Off-duty Traffic Unit Lt. Dale Evans witnessed a male hanging out of Barnes’ vehicle attempting to get out. The male was able to escape from the vehicle on Feli Way after Barnes drove into a ditch. Spencer ran back toward M.L. King Road and Barnes drove back toward Spencer in an attempt to strike him, repeating the act several more times before the male was picked up by a friend in another vehicle.

Deputies stopped both vehicles a short distance away and smelled the odor of marijuana in the vehicle containing Spencer. Barnes told investigators that Spencer was in possession of marijuana. Spencer opened a bag he was carrying and turned 10 individually wrapped plastic baggies containing marijuana to investigators. The 10 bags weighed 30.5 grams and Spencer was arrested on the felony narcotics charge at the scene.

Barnes was determined to be the primary aggressor and she was charged on scene as well. Both individuals remain in the Wakulla County Jail, Barnes with a $5,000 bond and Spencer under a $2,500 bond.

    WCTV, where is my post explaining ebonics? There's nothing wrong with it, in fact, teaching ebonics was once a consideration for the school systems.

        Which reporters & which stations are you referencing? Some of the best reporters at WCTV are black and they don't use ebonics, they speak good english.

    Before the road was changed to MLK, it was Lower Bridge Road. What does the name of the road have to do with anything? People that lives there now (both black & white) lived there before the road name change. Only a stupid, shallow minded person would blame the problem on the road's name.

    Who was the first to be there, an off duty officer. Not one on the clock, they are sitting at some store having coffee and talking.

    My favorite part of the story is the off-duty deputy giving a "play-by-play" of her trying to play car hockey with the dope pusher.
