Newark, Delaware – The Delaware State Police arrested a Newark man who illegally owned a gun after he was involved in an accident.

The incident began around 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 16, 2021 when Jessie Jamison, 25, from Newark, Delaware, was involved in a single vehicle collision when the 2015 Infinity Q50 he was operating on Christiana Road (SR273) went off the road and hit a power pole in the Brownleaf Road area. When the soldiers arrived at the scene, they were informed that Jamison may have a gun that was hidden with him.
