Traffic stop leads to trafficking drug charges for Orange Park woman

 

ORANGE PARK – A traffic stop for running a stop sign escalated into a trafficking methamphetamine charge for a woman on June 27.

According to the Clay County Sheriff’s Office, Brandy Kay O’Brien, 47, was arrested after K-9 Odin alerted deputies of the likely presence of illegal narcotics inside her car after she was pulled over when a deputy said she didn’t stop while turning right onto Peoria Road.

Deputies found a zip pouch containing four hypodermic needles and six plastic bags containing methamphetamine.

Her bond is $250,003, and she was warned for not stopping at the sign.

 

CCSO: Man arrested after threatening three people with knife

 

KEYSTONE HEIGHTS – A man who threatened two people and a Clay County Fire Rescue lieutenant with a knife was subdued in a wooded area on June 27 when a Clay County Sheriff’s Office deputy used his Taser.

John Joseph Danella, 36, of Zephyrhills, was charged with aggravated assault on a firefighter/EMT, two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and resisting law enforcement after Danella went to Lake Area Ministries and asked for water. He then walked behind the business and into the woods. According to the arrest report, two people from the ministries followed him with some ice to help him cool off, but he threatened them with a knife.

Fire Rescue was called when Danella said he saw a woman passed out in the woods. When Fire Rescue arrived, a lieutenant was threatened with a knife. CCSO Tased Danella three times before they were able to put him in custody.

Danella was taken to HCA Florida Orange Park Hospital for observation. Then, on June 30, Danella was charged with possessing a controlled substance.

Danella is being held without bond.
