Exclusive 911 calls: Virginia ABC agent says assault victim “tried to run over people;” witness says “gun was pulled”

| July 4, 2013 | 51 Comments

Exclusive to the Schilling Show, below is the harrowing 911 call placed by “Ann, Downy,” presumably a passenger in the vehicle driven by 20 year-old Elizabeth Daly as Daly’s SUV was surrounded by plainclothes Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) agents.

Daly was arrested on the night of April 11, 2013 following a terrorizing incident in the Charlottesville Harris Teeter parking lot. State agents suspected Daly of being an underage purchaser of alcohol, when in fact she had bought bottled water and cookie dough from the grocery store. When bellowing officers surrounded her car, Daly and her passengers, unsure of the aggressors’ identities calmly called 911 to report the incident.

The tension escalated quickly, though, as ten-seconds into the call, shrieks of “oh my God” and “what should we do” emanate from the vehicle as the girls plead for help and advice from the local 911 operator. In the background, what appears to be a female voice can be heard screaming, “get out, get out, get out.”

According to written reports, Daly feared that the ABC officers were trying to break the vehicle’s windows, and soon after, Daly left the scene, driving until the 911 operator instructed the vehicle to stop, upon reassurance that the officers were with ABC.

The 911 operator then asks to speak with one of the agents, who identifies himself as  “John” [last name unintelligible], and tells the operator that “everybody’s showing badges” and that the driver “pulled up and tried to run over people.”

A second 911 call was placed by a male witness to the incident, who reported seeing “undercover officers” and “a gun being pulled” in the Harris Teeter parking lot.

Contrary to multiple published accounts, charges against Elizabeth Daly have not been dropped, but rather, they were voluntarily withdrawn. Charlottesville Commonwealth’s Attorney, Dave Chapman, says that although charges technically could be “re-instituted, his office would “…resist any attempt by anyone to initiate a prosecution of this matter in the future.”

More than 300 supporters of Elizabeth Daly (and the rule of law) have signed an online petition to Governor Bob McDonnell, requesting discipline for the officers involved and an ABC apology for the assault.

    Anyone with gun attacking my car I will run them over until dead and again until I sure they were all dead.
    fwiw the breathing ABC police should be grateful I wasn't driving.

    Between facing murder charges or being killed, I will chose murder charges every single time.

    These Barney Fife thugs impersonating law enforcement should be in jail for their violation of her 4th Amendment rights. The Soetorro-Obama machine (SS) is accelerating their tyranny folks. Resistance is freedom.

  9. Jack Lamb says:

    Knew it would not be long before the 'wanna be" ABC cops got some press time.
    These guys are about as bad as a cold.
    They have been shoved to the back of the bus and now want their day in the sun but the sun set before it could shine!
    Just goes to show you how far the police state we live in will go to try to scare the rest of us into submission!
    Buy bottled water, it make THEM nervous!

    the Elizabeth Daly, Harris Teeter incident, wherein Virginia ABC agents arrested the 20 year-old for possessing bottled water and cookie dough.

    She was not arrested for that. Your inability to tell the truth even when the truth is widely known and is actually favorable to your point makes everything else you say untrustworthy.

  15. Rebecca Lyne says:

    "Tried to run over people" my ass! These were clearly law abiding year old girls who even ask the dispatcher politely, "what should we do"? Cops today are bunch of cowards.

  16. Anonymous says:

    Ummm, yeah. it is night time and I get surrounded by people brandishing weapons I am hitting the gas and getting the hell out of there THEN call 911. If the undercover cops are in the way and are not identifying themselves then they can just add whatever charges they feel like and let my attorney deal with it later but I will damn sure not get carjacked and raped because I thought that the criminals might be undercover cops trying to apprehend me for buying cookie dough and water!

    Idiots need to be taken off the streets.

  19. Robert Monoson says:

    This is disgusting. ANYONE could have said they were with "ABC" in that local area – these girls believed they were in grave danger and I am APPALLED at the level of excessive force. I have instructed my wife and kids to do the same thing if this type of event were to ever occur to them. Woe to this police department – I would instruct these women to retain a lawyer immediately. -shocking? no. These women were irreprehensible in their perceived "crime" to purchase bottled water; what in the world are these LOE's even thinking? I would make it my personal mission in life to right this wrong if this ever happened to my wife or kids. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! This isn't Soviet Russia – nor should we sit back and ALLOW this type of behavior to continue.

  21. Adam Hendricks says:

    Stupid f-ing cops… What kind of a dipshit a-hole pulls a gun for suspected underage alcohol purchase? The cop should be fired and do jail time. This is just total BS.

  22. This is nothing new for the Virginia ABC police. I saw them arrest a guy in 1976 at a 7-11 for buying beer for an undercover child. That guy most certainly needed a dental surgeon for reconstruction.

    It's a totally cheap shot to blame this on anyone but the people of the Commonwealth. It just makes you look like a nutcake. But then I'm sure that's an accurate perception.

  23. Kevin Brent says:

    These jackbooted bastards belong in Spandau Prison, where their Nazi predecessors all rotted.

  24. Deaf Girl says:

    “ABC agent” – what would this mean to an out-of-state college student? I’m not interested in showbiz. What a stupid thing to yell out at someone. They should just say “Police”.

    Also, the Code of Virginia states in several places that an arresting officer must be in uniform. If you get pulled over by blue lights, and the person is not dressed in uniform, drive off and call 911. ABC agents do not have uniforms, but again, who’s going to know that detail?

  25. Boyd Miller says:

    Good thing they cracked down on those bottled water purchasers!!! Probably done while 15 illegals snuck behind them on up the road. Frigging dolts.

  27. How many ABC agents does it take to arrest one girl with water and cookie dough? Apparently more than 3 or 4, paid for with lots of tax dollars.

  28. Good for Barbara Comstock, and good for Rob Schilling! The "agents" should be jailed, and then fired and banned for ever again holding any position where they can exercise authority over the populace. Listen to the terror in their voices as the girls call 911, and listen to the answer the buffoon “agent” gives the Police dispatcher when the questions them. Don’t they have a minimum IQ for these employees? And a psychological test they have to pass before being given these powers? The UVA kids are the best the country has to offer, not only academically, but in honesty and character. They were accosted by the very worse we have to offer.

  29. Why do people sound shocked when these type of incidents happen? We have been heading this direction for the last five years. Since Barry's first swearing in. He said he was going to "Fundamentaly transform" America. As you are now finding out it was NOT for the better. This man in the oval office means to turn this country into a socialist nation and he doesn't mind if it's by force. I think that at some level that is exactly what he wants. After his 4th of july speech, someone left a mic pinned to his shirt hot, or turned on still. Here is the sum of what he had to say as he walked back into the W.H. Quote “God, this holiday sucks! All this national pride shit get’s on my nerves.You’d think we’d stop celebrating the birth of the worst imperial power in history –but nooooo…we have to do this flag-waving bullshit every year,” “I can’t believe I have to miss a good day of golf for this crap!" “…Could have been at Oakmont with Jay-Z now trying out that new Callaway set Alec (Baldwin) gave me last year! " end quote He has also made a deal with Russia to allow 15,000 troops to put Russian boots on the ground here in the U.S. to "help" with major events what ever the H*LL that means. This destroys the Posse Comitatas act we NOW have an agreement with Canada where THEY come across the border and have police powers here and us there. We have chinese AND Polish soldiers on OUR land! So, get used to it America, or decide you HAVE to get rid of the socialist senators AND House reps and put constititionist people in their place next year! YOUR CHOICE AMEARICA.

    Damn this day sucks!”.

    I just heard this and will report on this as I write news articles and re-route back to you. What the ABC did in VA was a disgrace.

  31. Christopher Collins says:

    The ABC guys should be lucky that these women weren't old enough to carry a firearm and shot at them. I mean, really…ABC sounds like a bunch of morons.

    I wonder what percentage of Schilling Show listeners are clinically insane.

  33. area58 says:

    Ken:
    Good question!. I wonder if they ready know what ABC enforcement divison was create for. Simple emforcement of liqueur laws. Collection of liqueur taxes, to arrest maker of moonshine etc. Over time to include no selling of liqueur to unage adults. What they did was in their job, could they have done it better, yes. The other issue what would have happen if they got drunk, when out and killed someone. Can’t have it both way anymore!

  34. Ken says:

    area, that’s all true, but my comment concerns the temporary insanity that several posters here display by thinking Obama is in any way responsible for this poor woman’s experience and the cops’ terrible judgment. Rob’s half truths, conspiracy theories, and demonization of his political opponents encourage that kind of paranoia and spite.

  35. area58 says:

    Ken:
    I know Rod, he is a little more to right than I am. I always has have the impression that he does his home work. This ABC iusse seem to have brought the conspiracy numbnuts out of wood work. As far as some posters just prove how some of them are out of touch they are really with way government runs. Odd are they will never really learn how government work. If step back, common sense (excuse me, I forgot that is in short system of late) would tell you that again this happen on local level, by couple of ABC officers who show very poor judgement, very poor. Will they get fired, odd are no. They will get called into office, have a former counciling statement issue to them. Maybe some retraining or than again maybe not.

  36. Ken says:

    area, I haven’t changed my opinion, but it’s honorable of you to defend Rob.

  37. Skipd says:

    The question that has not been asked by anyone…..

    …..is just what prompted the ABC enforcement officials to go after these girls?

    Did they see them buy the water/beer?

    Did the person at the checkout tell them they were underage and bought the water/beer?

    Just how did they pick these kids out?

  38. Igor Stravinsky says:

    Just FYI, five out of the seven “special agents” involved are: agent John Taylor, agent Andrew Taylor, agent Lauren Blanks (the lone female), Agent Armond Brown, who is believed to be the person who pulled his gun on these desperadoes, and the terrified and traumatized agent who filed the complaint with three felonies is agent Andrew Covey.

  39. Jesse Roper says:

    You really believed the story about the phony school ID? Did your grandmother forward you that email? .. lol

    More stupid pathetic hillbilly cops. Says a lot about how the rich people in the country view society. Hmm, who should we hire to carry a badge and gun? Let’s the hire the dumbest people! Good idea!
