The son of Raleigh's police chief has found himself on the wrong side of the law again after being charged with a felony Tuesday.

Online arrest records show 24-year-old David Louis Brown II, the son of Chief Cassandra Deck-Brown, was arrested along Capital Blvd and Wake Forest Road on suspicion of possessing a stolen vehicle.

It is his second arrest in less than a year. Last July, Brown turned himself into authorities after he was accused of leaving a bar without paying his tab.

Raleigh police said the charges stemmed from a dispute over a bill at the Ugly Monkey Party bar on West Morgan Street.

Police Chief Deck-Brown released a public statement following that arrest that said in part:

"I am concerned and disappointed that my adult child made choices that caused him to be charged. On a personal level, I will support him and the efforts he makes to achieve positive change. While this is embarrassing for him and for me, it does not alter the love we have for one another. At the same time, I will maintain the confidence I have in the justice system and will let the legal process run its course."

David Brown also was charged in 2014 with failing to keep a court date in an accusation that he had not returned property that he had rented with an option to buy it.

It was not clear if he has an attorney on the stolen vehicle charge.
