Kalamazoo, MI — 30-year-old Bret Frame’s blood-alcohol level was reported to be .263 four hours after allegedly killing Justin Bailey, 23, and seriously injuring a passenger in Bailey’s car. Deputies estimated Frame was traveling about 100 miles per hour when he allegedly hit Bailey’s car from behind and “sent it flying airborne into a tree.”
According to police, after the accident deputies went to Frame’s parents’ house to arrest him on suspicion he had caused the wreck. The 240-pound Frame was reported to have been hit with a Taser three times by deputies, with no effect.
The police report said Frame continued to yell, “I’m going to kill you,” and tried to grab a deputy’s gun belt, possibly to get his gun. Police Tasered him again, and that time it seemed to work.
Police dashcam video released Wednesday shows Frame in the back seat of a patrol car headbutting the protective barrier and yelling at police.
“You’re a b—-,” he’s seen on tape saying. “Bring it on, b—-.”
Frame’s criminal record includes assault, theft and a May 2010 incident for drunken driving.
Frame was taken to a hospital. Sadly, unsubstantiated reports that the trip to the hospital was for a court-ordered euthanasia proved incorrect. He was instead taken after to the Kalamazoo County jail.
Kalamazoo County District Judge Vincent Westra ordered Frame be held on $250,000 cash/surety bond. He is charged with six felonies: second-degree murder, operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated causing death, operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated causing serious injury, malicious destruction of police property and two counts of resisting and obstructing police.
Bailey’s passenger, Mark D. Angelocci, of Grand Rapids, is in critical condition at a local hospital.Bret Frame, destruction of police property, DUI, Justin Bailey, Mark D. Angelocci, Murder, Resisting Arrest
