Fort Wayne Police Department Deputy Chief Involved in Fight With Minor

FORT WAYNE, Ind. – A complaint involving Fort Wayne Police Department Deputy Chief Derrick Westfield is now being reviewed by the Allen County Prosecutor’s Office. FWPD said internal affairs is also reviewing the case. In a police report obtained by NewsChannel 15, what started as an apparent road rage incident ended in a fight on the minor’s driveway.

According to the Allen County police records, Westfield was driving his personal vehicle and entered the round-a-bout on Auburn Road at Union Chapel Road around midnight on Sunday November 5. Adrian Lowe, 18, the driver of a vehicle in the round-a-bout, claims Westfield cut him off. Lowe then flashed his lights at Westfield and Westfield is said to have “brake-checked” Lowe. Lowe then sped past Westfield’s vehicle and turned into the Falcon Creek Addition.

Westfield followed Lowe into the addition, which he said is because he also lives there. Lowe pulled into the driveway of a home in the 1500 block of Millenium Crossing, and this is where the accounts of what happened next vary.

Lowe and the 17-year-old in his car told police that Westfield followed them and stopped in front of the 17-year-old’s house. The teens were asking Westfield and his fiance, who was in Westfield’s vehicle, why they cut them off and the teens said Westfield got out of his SUV. Lowe said Westfield was “aggressively in his face” saying “do something” and then pushed him. When the 17-year-old told Westfield to stop, the teens said Westfield pushed the 17-year-old too and the two started fighting. Westfield had the 17-year-old on the ground and was on top of him when Lowe went into the house to get the 17-year-old’s father.
