26-year-old Markeeis Antwan James, a Don’t Chase Boyz 615 member, a street-racing crew that actively hosts and attends meetups in the Middle Tennessee area, was “sliding” at a gathering at Corporate Place in the late night hours of April 22nd. James spun his car at a high speed, lost control, and struck David Garcia, a juvenile onlooker, resulting in serious bodily injuries that required hospitalization. James’s participation and attendance at the street-racing meetup constitutes riotous conduct. He was taken into custody on December 12th, charged with riot and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. “Get back or get clapped” is a common phrase used in the street-racing community when someone is too close to the cars performing.
Markeeis Antwan James of Lascassas Pike in Murfreesboro, TN, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on December 12th, charged with riot and aggravated assault. He is free on a $11,000 bond.
