A passenger in the vehicle told deputies that Lloyd accidentally shot himself while trying to disassemble a Glock handgun before pulling over, falsely believing that it would not be a crime to possess a disabled firearm.

  • Operating a motor vehicle while fleeing or attempting to elude law enforcement
  • Carrying a concealed weapon
  • Child abuse by creating a risk of physical injury by discharging a firearm inside a vehicle where a child was present while actively fleeing from law enforcement
  • Speeding (70 mph in 45 mph zone)
  • Driving while license revoked
  • Failure to properly secure a child in an appropriate safety belt

After receiving treatment for his injuries, Lloyd went before the magistrate and was given a $5,000 secured bond.

At the time of Wednesday’s events, Lloyd was out on bond on the following charges from Jan 4:

  • Possession with intent to sell and deliver cocaine
  • Carrying a concealed weapon

Lloyd is scheduled to appear in court at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday.
