Dwight Ridgeway McGinnis Jr., 67, of Raleigh, was charged with vulnerable adult neglect and served with an outstanding warrant after police said his mother was found inside a truck in the parking garage of Maryland Live! Casino in Hanover, Maryland.

According to WNCN, police responded to the parking garage around 6:37 p.m. after someone reported that the elderly woman was inside the vehicle.

The woman told police she had been in the truck alone since 1:42 p.m. She is confined to a wheelchair and was unable to get out without help.

Police said the woman was initially confused and incoherent when officers arrived, but she was able to help them locate her son after she was given water.

"The only evidence of food or drink in the vehicle was an empty soda can," police said. "The air temperature at the time of the report was 81 degrees, and the victim was found inside the vehicle with one window only partially open."

McGinnis was found and arrested a short time later.

McGinnis was also served with an outstanding warrant for failing to appear for a driving suspended charge.

      Thats exactly right maybe not in the hood but the same sorryasse attitude that gives ahite people a bad name !1 A real worthless P_O_S_ !!

        But yet no mention from you about his race being the issue like you do when a minority commits a crime. Interesting. Maybe you and Bo Diddley should have a conference about that. Don’t forget your sheets and hoods.

        Hey Kenny is that the best you got ? Follow the rest of the cheap shooters !! Take your best shot I am sure to be impressed by the Fassebook crowd !

        The truth is never a cheap shot. I can pull up every article about a black criminal where you constantly bring up race yet fail to do it when there is a caucasian related crime. Got to difficult to type with a hood on.

    • sinner 3

      More likely true than not and probably steals her meds to sell on the street to more sorryasse white fvckers !!

      not “pure ignorance” Not a sinner is responding to the normal racist statements made by “sinner3”, follow along before you judge. Sinner3 is a racist and attributes everything that happens in the new to blacks and hispanic.

        Tracey ! That’s what i was referring to—– “Sinner3” remark… that is why I said “good one”
        Maybe I should have had myself a little more clearer.. before you were so fast to JUDGE !

        Thank you. Glad I read your post b4 responding. Thought not a sinner was the one being racist.  

      • sinner 3

        You are simply wrong Tracey I dislike and talk smack about any sorry person !! The skin color has nothing to do with character !! Now when someone else used my post name that is when the racist remarks were credited to the real sinner 3 !!

      • sinner 3

        Well looks like old Tracey and the Sum have had a meeting of their views towards the ole Sinner 3 !1 Best f luck to both you fvcking assewipes !!

    • Ken

      BS sinner3. There is not one article on this site, where you DON’t bring up race whenever a black person commits a crime, yet you never mention race when a white person does the SAME THING. You have been busted, debunked, and dethroned for being the king of the ignorant.

      • sinner 3

        Sure Kenny sure you and your aseshole buddies really impressed with yourself !! I still say you are gonna have to do better!! Typical Dem tactic sit on your hind legs and bark and yet prove nothing !!

    I don’t see why anyone is bringing his color into play here. Black, White, green, or purple, he’s a jerk to treat his mother that way. He’s 67 and anyone would think he should know better. I hope he spends some time in jail but he’s most likely the only one available to take care of his mother, even if he’s doing a really lousy job of it.

    • Amy

      I agree Donnie.Skin color has nothing to do with it.Regardless of color you can’t fix stupid.Selfish and stupid doesn’t have a color.I only hope she has other family members that can help her if needed.

  • Bo Diddley

    These are the usual comments from Ken. Nobody has said that whites do not commit crimes. Blacks just commit a disproportionate percentage based on their percent of the population. These are FBI statistics. This guy is a bad dude and should be locked up. Take a deep breath Ken.

    Do companies not send as much mail during vacation season. If not it sure helps the mail carriers in the heat or cold. And gives them extra hour or two of home time. About this story… It is a story about a man and woman that have played hit me too much for money. They won’t learn from it. Time is in neithers side. Bad time for her and him.

  • Entertained By Stupidity

    Lol sinner3 must be really bored and lonely.

    He/she is always making really stupid comments on these things.
    Maybe he/she is addicted to shock value due to lack of attention.
