VIPD: A Drunken Eldica ‘Elli’ Nanton Plows Her Car Into The Truck In Front of Her, Breaking The Arm of A 13-Year-Old Girl

RUNS IN THE FAMILY: Nicole “Gros Flaka” Nanton
FREDERIKSTED — A drunken St. Croix senior citizen from a notorious petty crime family plowed her car into the the pickup truck in front of her and broke the arm of a 13-year-old girl, the Virgin Islands Free Press has learned.
Police said that Eldica “Elli” Nanton, 60, hit the vehicle in front of her about 4:40 p.m. on Tuesday near Alfredo Andrews Elementary School while being “highly intoxicated.”
The injured teen-age girl was immediately transported to the Juan F. Luis Hospital for medical treatment, according to Virgin Island Police Department (VIPD) chief spokesman Glen Dratte.

As depicted in this exclusive V.I. Freep photo, emergency personnel from the EMT’s, the VIPD Traffic Division, as well as Virgin Islands Fire Services were on hand to rubberneck.

In February 2007, Virgil Nanton, 23, and his sister, Nicole “Gros Flaka” Nanton, 25, of Long Reef Condominiums in Orange Grove were sentenced for the switchblade stabbing of 34-year-old Dwayne Harvey outside a mid-island nightclub in March 2005.

At that time, Virgin Islands Superior Court (which is subordinate to the federal court) Presiding Judge Darryl Donohue sentenced the brother-sister Nantons to four years in prison for third-degree assault and 10 years for possession of a dangerous weapon during the commission of a violent crime.

Donohue, a former U.S. Attorney prosecutor in the Virgin Islands, ordered that the sentences run concurrently.

The non-dynamic duo originally were charged with first-degree assault, third-degree assault and possession of a dangerous weapon, but jurors did not convict them on the first-degree assault charge.

During the sentencing hearing, Nicole Nanton’s losing Christiansted attorney, Thomas Alkon, feebly tried to get the court to believe that the incident was a bar brawl that turned tragic but that it was not Nicole Nanton or her brother Virgil who possessed the knife or committed the stabbing.

SCENE OF THE CRIME: Alfredo Andrews Elementary School in Estate Kingshill at mid-island St. Croix.
