NEW CRIMINAL CHARGES FOR WPD OFFICER WITH QUESTIONABLE RECORD
July 31, 2023
[EXCERPTS] ...Prosecutors asked a judge for a $1M bond for Wilmington Police Department officer Darryl Warren, saying they BELIEVED HE INTENDED TO KILL THE WOMAN... Judge R. Russel Davis, who previously heard a protective order case brought by Warren's ex-wife, rejected that request... Warren knew the woman... she had been a passenger and was struck by Warren after she got out of his vehicle. We also know that HE BLEW A .10 BAC — AND I’VE HEARD THAT WAS ABOUT TWO HOURS AFTER THE INCIDENT, so he was definitely quite intoxicated... Witnesses who called for help described a pretty brutal scene. Warren allegedly struck a tree and another vehicle trying to hit her. One caller specifically described Warren flooring the accelerator trying to run her down... On the criminal side, Warren was charged with several misdemeanors and felonies when he was in his late teens, EARLY TWENTIES, ABOUT 15-20 YEARS AGO, AND THOSE INCLUDE BREAKING AND ENTERING, MAKING THREATENING PHONE CALLS, AND POSSESSION OF A STOLEN FIREARM... he went on to serve in the Army, so that probably helped mitigate things when he was hired at WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH PD, where he worked for about five years... Warren approached the SHERIFF’S OFFICE FOR A JOB BUT THEY WEREN’T INTERESTED, BUT WPD HIRED HIM IN 2020... Two years ago Warren’s wife filed for a divorce, and a year after that she applied for a restraining order. According to the court filing, WARREN SHOWED UP, BANGING ON HER DOOR, AND MAKING THREATS... THE JUDGE DIDN’T GRANT THE ORDER... According to Warren’s personnel records from the city, he wasn’t put on leave... The truth is, Warren’s track record puts him in a grey area. With the exception of that one misdeamer, he HASN’T BEEN CONVICTED OF ANYTHING, and, as frustrating as this is for victim’s advocates, SOMETIMES LAW ENFORCEMENT DOWNPLAYS ISSUES STEMMING FROM DIVORCES...

THREATENING MYSELF AND THE OTHER ADULT IN THE HOME”...
