A Buford man arrested in connection with an made several attempts to escape police custody.
On Feb. 23, Gwinnett County Police officers met with Lawrenceville police in Buford after obtaining information that a vehicle used by suspects in an armed robbery was parked at a home on Roberts Street. On the way to the Roberts Street residence, an officer spotted the vehicle, a green Ford Expedition, turning onto Bona Road. The officer conducted a traffic stop on East Main Street near Wiley Drive after the driver of the vehicle, Quentin Michael Monday, 28, of Buford, drove across the center line of the roadway.
The officer informed Monday that he had been stopped for failing to drive within a single lane and asked for Monday's license. Monday did not have his license with him, but provided the officer with his name and date of birth. The state criminal information database showed Monday was licensed and was on parole.
Monday, who advised he was on parole for murder, said he had a fourth amendment waiver and gave consent for the officer to search his vehicle. During the search, police found drops of blood near the rear passenger seat. According to the police report, the robbery victim, who had been beaten, said police would find his blood in that area of the vehicle.
At that point, one of the officers at the scene attempted to place Monday in handcuffs. As the officer reached for his handcuffs, Monday fled. Three officers chased after Monday and, as they drew close, one of the officers attempted to tase Monday.
