Man described as one of city’s worst offenders back in jail


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A man Wilmington’s police chief called one of the city’s worst offenders earlier this month is back behind bars.

Police arrested Rashawn Hines last night on a felony probation violation, and he was booked in to the New Hanover County Jail at 9 p.m., according to the jail staff. Hines is in custody under $500,000 bond.

Earlier this month Police Chief Ralph Evangelous criticized a visiting judge for releasing Hines from jail after he’d been held for a probation violation. Evangelous called Hines one of the city’s worst offenders and blamed him for gun violence that occurred shortly after his release. That led to a meeting with police, prosecutors and probation officers about what information is needed for such cases.

In an ONLY ON 3 interview, Hines told WWAY NewsChannel 3 he had been arrested on “a bogus charge.” He also said he had nothing to do with any recent shootings.
