Teens arrested in connection with party where boy fell from window
DAVIDSON – Two teens have been arrested in connection with a December party in Davidson where a 16-year-old fell from a window and was left in a coma, Davidson police said.
Mitchell Walley and Hunter Howe, both 17, were arrested last week in connection with the party. Walley was charged with consuming alcohol underage, according to the Mecklenburg County jail log. Howe was charged with resisting arrest and aiding and abetting purchase of alcohol, the jail log said.
Police were called to the 211 Pat Stough home Dec. 5, where they found 16-year-old Clayton Durboraw unconscious when they arrived. Partygoers told police the teen had been upstairs drinking when they heard glass break and then heard him fall.
Police believe the partygoers left Durboraw outside and unconscious for 20 minutes as they tried to clean up and destroy evidence of the party before calling 911, police said.
Police are still investigating the incident. No one has been arrested in connection with Durboraw’s injuries.
A status update on Durboraw’s condition was not available.
Report: Former Huntersville cop offered deal in underage sex case
LINCOLNTON – A report claims that Kurt Marcus, a former Huntersville Police Lieutenant accused of indecent liberties with two minors, has been offered a plea bargain.
The WSOC-TV report said officials in Lincoln County, where Marcus is charged with four counts of indecent liberties, have offered Marcus the chance to plead guilty to one charge and receive four months in prison. Marcus’ lawyer and Lincoln County officials could not be reached for comment.
Marcus could face more than three years in prison if found guilty of all charges.
Marcus was a 12-year veteran of the police department and was a member of the patrol division since 2002.
He was put on administrative leave Sept. 13 when Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office deputies contacted Huntersville police about their investigation. The alleged incidents happened while Marcus was off duty. He resigned in early December after being indicted.
It is unclear when he will next appear in court.
