ALAMO — This is a story about a jailbird accumulating arrests faster than birthdays. Darryl Maiale, 24 of Hayward, was arrested for the 25th time on November 6th. His most recent arrest concerns crashing a stolen car.
Of course, Maiale was previously locked up for stolen cars, but most of his prior arrests involved drugs. In addition, his record includes burglaries, fraud, and arrests for carrying a switch blade.
This brings us to last week, when a sheriff’s deputy spotted a stolen car, and the driver crashed while fleeing. The man arrested for this incident was Maiale once more.
Here’s how his 25th arrest played out. First, a deputy began following a stolen car, traveling westbound on Highway 4. It was shortly before 3 p.m. when the driver recklessly sped away from the deputy.
Not long afterward, the driver of the stolen vehicle turned onto Highway 242, and next onto Interstate 680. All the while, a GPS signal from inside the stolen car was reporting its location.
As the driver was exiting from I-680, another deputy caught up with the car near Stone Valley Road. Again, the driver fled, but this time the stolen car crashed at an intersection.
Consequently, for the 25th time, Maiale avails himself of familiar surroundings in county jail. This time his charges are vehicle theft, receiving stolen property, resisting and evading an officer.
