Saadiq Teague Wiki – Saadiq Teague Biography

Saadiq Teague, of Canal Winchester, was spotted by officers around 12:30 p.m. Friday charging his cellphone at a charging station in the mezzanine area at the 42nd St./Port Authority station in Midtown Manhattan, about a long block from Times Square.

Police said Teague had taken an unloaded AK-47 out of a bag and laid it on the floor in plain view. Upon seeing the weapon, officers on a routine patrol of the station approached Teague and questioned him. He reportedly told them he had a permit for the weapon in Ohio and thought open-carry was allowed in New York City, police said.

Saadiq Teague is 18 years old.

Victim

Andrew Teague was shot and killed by authorities in Columbus, Ohio, on Mar. 5 following a wild pursuit on Interstate 270. Authorities were trying to arrest Teague for a felonious assault warrant related to a Feb. 2 incident before the deadly encounter, cops said.

Police pursued Teague for more than an hour, and in an attempt to flee, Teague drove the wrong way on I-270 and ultimately struck two other vehicles head-on within minutes.

Andrew Teague Cause of Death

“Three senior law enforcement officials” told NBC New York that Saadiq Teague is the son of 43-year-old Andrew Teague, who was shot and killed by law enforcement after a high-speed police pursuit and wrong-way, head-on crash on I-270 in Columbus on March 5. The New York Daily News reported the same, citing an unnamed source.

Other New York media reported Friday that police were investigating a possible relationship between the two men.

The Dispatch published an obituary for Andrew Teague by the Wayne T. Lee Funeral Service, which referred to a longer obituary on the funeral home’s website that stated he had a son named Saadiq. But The Dispatch could not independently confirm that the man arrested in New York City was the same individual.

Andrew Teague had been wanted on a felonious assault charge for a Feb. 2 shooting in which he was alleged to have fired more than a dozen rounds at his brother, according to Franklin County Municipal Court records.

Police spotted Andrew Teague on March 5 and began pursuing him, but the chase got called off because of safety concerns. The Columbus police division’s helicopter unit continued to track Teague by air.

While the helicopter unit was tracking Teague, a Franklin County Sheriff’s Office deputy spotted Teague and began pursuing him again. The deputy aired that Teague had a firearm visible in the vehicle with him.

When Teague started going north in the southbound lanes of Interstate 270, the deputy also broke off pursuit. As the helicopter officers watch from above, Teague collided with two other vehicles on I-270 while traveling the wrong way south of the Interstate 70 interchange.

Teague’s damaged vehicle stopped on the highway’s shoulder, where he got out and exchanged gunfire with officers before being fatally shot.

Arrested – Charges

Among items found inside a bag with him were a magazine for the AK-47 rifle, 18 rounds, and gear that resembled a gas mask. Police were investigating whether the latter item could be used with the marijuana and bong found in the hotel room where Teague was staying, according to NBC News New York. A drug scale was also recovered from a backpack with Teague at the station.

Teague was taken into custody and later charged with two counts of criminal possession of a loaded firearm, two counts of criminal possession of an assault rifle, one count of criminal possession of an ammo clip, and one count of criminal possession of drug paraphernalia.

A photo of the rifle that police found on Teague was tweeted by NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea.

He was later taken in handcuffs from an NYPD transit station past photojournalists — whom he reportedly told from behind a black face mask, “I love you all” — and was being held in jail Friday night.

Investigation Report

The FBI was also involved in the investigation into the matter, sources said. Woods said he’s lost touch with Saadiq in recent years but called him a good kid who enjoyed playing football.

An Ohio man who identified himself as Saadiq’s uncle was stunned by the news Friday.

“How the hell did he get into New York?” questioned the relative, Rennell Mahone, during a phone call with The Post before asking, “He had a gas mask in the subway station?”
