Earlier this week, Levine thought he would have a little fun and ride a small motorcycle that was not street certified on the streets of Abbeville.
Officers Joshua P. Hebert and Daniel Powers came across him driving his small two-wheeler on North Myles and East Vermilion streets.
The patrol lights were turned on when they pulled behind Levine. He pulled over in front of a home on Prairie Street.
The officers requested his driver’s license but he said it was in his aunt’s house, which he stopped in front of. The officers instructed him to go into the house, and they watched from the front glass door of the house.
Levine went inside and then came back outside and said he did not have a driver’s license because it was suspended. The police arrested him, and Hebert went to knock on the door of the residence, thinking it was Levine’s aunt who lived there.
However, that changed when the resident of the home answered the door and wanted to know what the police wanted. The officer asked the lady if he knew Levine. They informed her Levine went into her house without her knowing. She encouraged the officers to search her house.
The officers discovered a small bag of alleged cocaine in the house, that Levine alledgedly left. They also found $1,000 in Levine’s possession.
Levine was arrested and placed in the back seat of the patrol car and brought to the city police station. He was taken into the police station and Senior Patrol Officer Joshua P. Hebert requested that Sgt. Jason Hebert retrieve the officer’s cell phone that he left in the squad car and also clear his unit (checking the seats to make sure no criminal left drugs or a gun in the back of the patrol car). When Sgt. Hebert opened the back door he saw a clear bag of 10.4 grams of alleged crack cocaine on the passenger’s floor.
Sgt. Hebert and the arresting officers watched a video camera from the squad car allegedly showing Levine reaching behind his pants, grabbing and then throwing what looked like a bag of cocaine onto the floor of the squad car. He did this while the patrol car was in route to the police station.
He was charged with possession with the intent to distribute crack cocaine and unauthorized entry into a dwelling. His total bond is $30,000 and as of Thursday, he was still in jail.
