On November 9, 2020, Hartman was busted for heroin and DWI-drugs when stopped while southbound on Md. Rt. 4 at Creston Lane in Solomons by Calvert Sheriff’s Department Deputy H. Wilder. A bond of $5,000 was posted by a resident of Bealeton, Virginia and he was released from the Calvert County Jail on November 13, 2020.
Calvert Sheriff Mike Evans reports that on November 9, 2020, Calvert County Emergency Communications received reports of two male subjects that appeared to be overdosing in the parking lot of KFC/Taco Bell in Solomons. The subjects were reported to leave in their vehicle, driving south on Solomons Island Road. Calvert Sheriff’s Department Corporal Rector located the vehicle and observed the driver all over the roadway. Corporal Rector conducted a traffic stop of the vehicle under the Thomas Johnson Bridge. Deputy Wilder arrived on the scene to assist in the traffic stop and observed the male subjects had already exited the vehicle. Deputy Wilder observed the driver, Wilbert Johnson Hartman (35), to have glassy eyes and slurred speech. A search of Hartman’s person was conducted resulting in a small plastic bag containing a small white rock suspected to be cocaine. A search of the vehicle resulted in two cut red straws containing white residue, as well as a used dose of Naloxone. Hartman was placed under arrest and transported to the Calvert County Jail where he was charged with CDS: Possession- Not Marijuana, and CDS: Possession of Paraphernalia.
Hartman may have set a record for driving while suspended and without a permit in both Maryland and Virginia. On July 8, 2014, Hartman was found guilty in Culpeper Circuit Court of felony possession of narcotics and sentenced to ten years in prison with all of the jail time suspended. Hartman has so many cases in Virginia, in various counties, of failing to return to jail or appear in court when violating the terms of his probation that it raises the possibility that the Judges in Virginia who repeatedly have failed to keep him in the hoosegow ought to be jailed themselves for committing fraud on the taxpayers for failing to enforce the law.
Culpeper Police reported on August 21, 2017, Wilbert Johnson Hartman III, 31, 1300 block of Spring Meadow Lane, Culpeper, Va., was charged with Failure to appear in court.
