During the foot chase, he disposed of a package. The package was determined to contain over 82 grams of pure methamphetamine. When police caught him near Rose Hill Park and Heelan High School, he resisted arrest. 

Lincoln’s past criminal history included two operating while intoxicated offenses, four assault convictions, a burglary conviction, and two previous convictions for possession while intent to sell drugs. Lincoln was also on probation when he attempted to distribute methamphetamine.
