DWI Suspect Attacks Police in Atlantic City, NJ

A suspect of driving while intoxicated (DWI), named Dwahn Davis, allegedly did not stop when indicated to, ended up crashing his vehicle, and attacked several police officers in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The occurrence unfolded on February 12, 2024, around 12.47 a.m. when Officer John Bell spotted a speeding car on Arctic Avenue. Despite Bell’s effort to apprehend him, Davis kept speeding, disregarding multiple red lights. Bell finally managed to corner him at Tennessee and Caspian Avenues, where Davis crashed into a parked car.

Post-crash, Davis stepped out of the car with a bottle of beer and failed to respond coherently to Bell due to apparent intoxication. He grabbed Bell’s fingers and attempted to resist arrest before being handcuffed. Later, he acted belligerently, kicking Bell, threatening officers at the scene and spitting on them. On route to the Clayton G Graham Public Safety building, he continued this unruly behavior and urinated on the holding cell once there.

Davis, a 39-year-old resident of Atlantic City, is being charged with DWI, resisting arrest, three counts of aggravated assault on a police officer, two counts of criminal mischief, refusal to be fingerprinted, and hindrance of apprehension. He has been taken to the Atlantic County Justice Facility. However, Atlantic City police have clarified that these charges are mere accusations, and Davis is presumed innocent until proven guilty.

If anyone has additional information on this or any other incident, they are urged to contact the Atlantic City PD Criminal Investigations Unit at (609) 347-5766 or via an anonymous text to tip411 (847411), starting with “ACPD.”
