Christopher Patrick Haynes Wiki – Biography
Christopher Patrick Haynes, 30, was taken into custody by the U.S. Marshals Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force at approximately 10:30 a.m. local time on Iverson Street in Oxon Hill, the U.S. Marshals said in a news release. The Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Department said in their own statement that Haynes was captured with the help of their MPD Falcon 1 helicopter. Police said that after his capture, he was taken to the Homicide Division “where he will be charged with escape” in addition to the “murder of Brent Hayward in August 2023.” Police said in the statement that Haynes was arrested in Manassas, Virginia, on Sept. 6 in connection with the Aug. 12 murder of Brent Hayward, according to a D.C. Superior Court arrest warrant. He was later transported to George Washington Hospital after he “complained of ankle pain due to a pre-existing injury” while being processed, according to police. While at the hospital, an officer attempted to change handcuffs to handcuff one of his hands to a gurney when Haynes “physically assaulted” the officer and “fled the hospital with a handcuff still on his right wrist,” according to the statement.
Christopher Patrick Haynes is 30 years old.
Police said two officers who had been with Haynes at the time attempted to chase him but were unable to catch him. Following his escape, the Metropolitan Police Department issued a public alert on social media that Haynes had escaped from George Washington Hospital custody around 3:38 p.m. Secret Service spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said in a post on less than a mile from the hospital where Haynes escaped. George Washington University also said it had canceled all in-person classes, events and other activities as a precaution, according to NBC News. During a Thursday press conference about Haynes’ recapture shared by DC News Now, Commander Don Snyder of the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force said the reason it took them some time to find him was because “we basically had to “reestablishing the investigation from the beginning.” He added that Haynes had also been “taking evasive measures to avoid capture.” This is not the first time Haynes has been accused of assaulting officers. In September 2020, he allegedly attempted to hit three Prince William County police officers with his vehicle and pleaded guilty to three counts of attempting to maliciously injure law enforcement officers, according to Fox 5 News.
