Driver Attempts to Flee Northern Virginia DUI CheckpointPosted on Aug 22, 2011
Authorities indicated that the Front Royal town police detective Jason Winner asked Randy R. Linamen, of 8724 Round Lane, for his driver's license and allegedly Linamen showed them a document titled "Drivers License" issued from the "Kingdom of Heaven."
Police allege that Winner questioned the driver about the document, and Linamen accused Winner of committing treason and not upholding his oath. During this conversation, another police detective indicated that he spotted two speed loaders in the center console of the van Linamen was driving and asked Linamen to exit the vehicle.
Authorities indicated that Linamen allegedly drove away from the checkpoint, and police had to physically remove him from his van when they caught up to him. Front Royal police allegedly found a loaded handgun in the driver's door pocket of Linamen's vehicle.
After a sweep of his vehicle, police said they found three pipe bombs under the driver's front seat, but determined that they contained no explosive materials.
They charged Linamen for two charges that included possession of a firearm after being convicted of a felony and operating a motor vehicle after being declared a habitual offender. Linamen was taken to Warren County Jail. He is being held without bond and his first hearing has been scheduled for August 16, 2011 at 10 a.m. in Warren County General District Court.
