The arrest of Alexander Michael Crosby in connection with the death of a bicyclist in York County has added to Crosby’s already extensive list of offenses throughout the years.

Crosby, 25, of Barhamsville, was arrested on Nov. 10 at the 20000 Block of Triangle Road in Barhamsville.

He is currently under investigation for this most recent incident, but he has a history of vehicle infractions and other charges over the years in Williamsburg, Henrico County and, mostly, in New Kent County, according to court documents.

Court records indicate his earliest vehicle-related infractions date back to June 2013, when Crosby was charged with reckless driving for going 86 mph in a 40 mph area. Crosby’s license was restricted to driving during working hours or traveling to and from work.

In August the same year, Crosby was fined for placing an inspection sticker on his vehicle that did not belong to him, records show. He was also charged with having a defective windshield and a safety belt violation but released on summons, said New Kent County Sheriff Joe McLaughlin.

In 2016, records show that Crosby was also arrested for shooting deer from a vehicle in Barhamsville.

Crosby also has a number of other charges in court records not related to vehicle infractions from petty larceny to intent to distribute illegal drugs. In a 6-year span, Crosby accumulated 17 various charges, many of which he was found guilty and maintains past due payments.

Most recently, Crosby was arrested as the alleged driver of a vehicle in a hit-and-run accident in York County on Oct. 25. The crash resulted in the death of bicyclist Brian Utne and has caused York County cyclists to come forward with safety concerns on the roads.

Officers arrested Crosby on Nov. 10 after a series of tips and interviews that provided evidence that led toward Crosby, Capt. Troy Lyons of the York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office said. Information on those interviews are currently unavailable as the case is ongoing.

Crosby is charged with involuntary manslaughter, reckless driving and leaving the scene of an accident.

Crosby’s vehicle was seized so that it can be processed for evidence, Lyons said. Once the vehicle is processed, a decision will be made in consultation with Commonwealth’s Attorney Benjamin M. Hahn if the vehicle can be released or if it will be retained until court proceedings regarding this case are complete.

The seizure of a vehicle is different from it being impounded, Hahn said. When a car is impounded based on an infraction such as driving on a suspended license, it can be help up to 90 days. But Crosby’s vehicle can be held for an undetermined amount of time until all of the appeals are exhausted, Hahn said.

Crosby was initially booked in Henrico County’s Regional Jail East following his arrest Nov. 10. On Wednesday, he was moved to the Virginia Peninsula Regional Jail.

A date for his first court appearance has not been set as of 1:10 p.m. Wednesday.
