LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Darius Printup was found guilty on several charges Thursday night. After several hours, the jury found Printup guilty of Dealing in a Synthetic Drug and Carrying a handgun without a license. He was found not guilty of Resisting Law Enforcement with a vehicle.

The charges were from an incident back in March 2018. According to police, officers were attempting to serve an arrest warrant on Darius Printup for a prior drug case. They attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the vehicle he was driving. Printup refused to stop and continued to drive at slow speed for a short distance. Printup finally came to a stop in the 2100 block of Bridgewater Circle where he was arrested without incident. Officers reported finding a loaded handgun, 227 grams of spice, and over $1000 in cash.

Printup has been arrested several times after he was accused and later acquitted of shooting and killing a Lafayette art teacher last year.
