Domestic disputes can often escalate and end badly for everyone involved. Often, these types of incidents result in criminal allegations of violent behavior against one or more parties.

As a result, anyone facing allegations of violent crimes should contact a Fairfax criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Attorney Wilfred Yeargan is dedicated to representing the rights of Virginians accused of crimes, and provides individualized representation in every case he handles.
According to a report published in the Washington Post, a Fairfax County police chase stemming from a domestic dispute ended tragically for one man who died, and seriously injured a police officer. The Post reported that according to police, the incident began shortly after midnight when they responded to a domestic dispute near the George Mason University campus. The investigating officers briefly spoke to a man, identified as Cicero Limberea, who then got into a vehicle and left the scene. Limberea turned into oncoming traffic on the Little River Turnpike and drove for several miles before colliding head on with an oncoming police vehicle. Police reported that Limberea died at the scene, and the officer who collided with him suffered several injuries, none of which were thought to be life threatening.
As this story illustrates, domestic disputes can quickly escalate into a much more serious situation. Anyone who is involved in a domestic dispute that results in police intervention should always remain calm and request to speak with an attorney. An attorney can ensure that your rights are protected and that you do not say anything that may expose you to unnecessary criminal liability.
