So, if you're being interviewed by mounted cops and your plan is to escape, you need to conjure up something better than just running.


22-year-old Wilmington man learned it's not wise to try to outrun a horse -- especially when there are three of them chasing you with police officers on their backs.

Darry Williams, of the 1000 block of S. Rodney St., was arrested Thursday night on drug charges after he tried to get away from three New Castle County mounted officers who were patrolling near the Rosehill parkland in New Castle.

Williams was involved in a drug deal in the outfield of the baseball field when the officers spotted him, said New Castle County Police Officer John Weglarz Sr.

He was charged with possession with intent to deliver cocaine, distributing cocaine in a parkland zone and resisting arrest, he said.

The incident occurred about 6:40 p.m., when three men were spotted engaging in what appeared to be a drug deal, Weglarz said.

Williams was seen reaching into his pocket and passing something to one of the others.

The three horses started to canter toward the trio, prompting Williams to bolt, Weglarz said.

While trying to outrun the horses on Ryan Avenue, Williams attempted to pass something off to a passer-by.

When he was arrested, Williams had crack cocaine, he said.
