David Louis Brown II, the son of Police Chief Cassandra Deck-Brown, is facing a felony charge of possessing a stolen dirt bike in the city early Tuesday.
An officer arrested Brown, 24, of 648 Penncross Drive in Raleigh, about 2:40 a.m. at Capital Boulevard and Wake Forest Road, according to arrest records kept by the City-County Bureau of Investigation.
It was not known Wednesday if Brown was riding the machine or what brought him to the attention of the arresting officer.
An arrest warrant cites statutory language saying Brown “knew and had reason to know” the dirt bike had been stolen. It does not say where or when the bike was taken or who took it.

Brown was taken to the Wake County Detention Center to appear before a magistrate. His bail was set at $3,000.
County records showed he was not in custody Wednesday.
Brown was arrested July 11, 2015, on a misdemeanor charge involving what police described as a “dispute over a bar tab” at the Ugly Monkey Party Bar on West Morgan Street. He was charged with defrauding an innkeeper.
Records show that Brown was convicted Aug. 28, 2015, of the defrauding charge and paid restitution of $124 plus a $20 fine and court costs of $180.
Brown was charged in 2014 with failing to keep a court date involving an accusation that he had not returned property that he had rented with an option to buy it in 2013. The charge involving the rental property, a misdemeanor, was dismissed.
Last month, officials charged that he missed a May 20 court appearance on citations from May 4 of operating an uninsured vehicle and allowing a vehicle to be operated without a license plate. Those charges are unresolved.
Ticketed for driving 57 mph in a 35 mph zone on Nov. 27, 2014, Brown was found guilty in January 2015 of having an improper speedometer and fined.
A citation from Valentine’s Day 2014 for doing 67 mph in a 35 mph zone was dismissed that July. A citation for reckless driving resulted in a prayer for judgment.
Charges of misdemeanor marijuana possession on March 14, 2013, July 12, 2013 and Feb. 28, 2014, were dismissed, as were charges of possessing drug paraphernalia on July 12, 2013, and Feb. 28, 2014.
The last of those incidents also involved a charge of resisting an officer, and Brown was convicted of that charge in June 2014 and paid a $50 fine.
