Brown had been charged with burglary in the second degree, Irons had been charged with probation violation, and Mendoca had been charged with carrying a concealed weapon and fleeing from police. Cheadle was charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intention to distribute, and was sentenced on one charge, but waiting to go to trial in another case.
