Sky Linn Stubblefield, 25, appears in Juneau District Court for her arraignment Friday on felony charges relating to a drive-by shooting Wednesday. Stubblefield was held on $10,000 bail.

Police arrest 2 for drive-by

He fired a weapon at someone he thought had stolen his dog, and she just happened to be driving the car, according to a police report quoted in a court affidavit.

Sky Stubblefield, 25, appeared in court Friday shaking her head in disbelief as a judge read charges against her in connection to the Wednesday morning drive-by shooting in downtown Juneau. Her response: “This is bull (expletive.) I didn’t do any of this.”

Stubblefield is the alleged driver of a gray vehicle from which Jose Antonio Delgado, 47, fired a weapon in the 400 block of Harris Street.

Lt. David Campbell told the Empire by phone Thursday that Juneau Police Department officers already near the scene (they were responding to a complaint at the Bergman Hotel) were able to find the car in less than a minute. It was empty, the engine was still running and the driver’s door was left open, according to the affidavit signed by Assistant District Attorney Amy Paige.

Campbell said JPD detectives found Stubblefield on North Douglas the following day after receiving a tip. Delgado was located at 3:57 p.m. Friday on Salmon Creek Lane and arrested on a $20,000 arrest warrant, according to a JPD news release.

Stubblefield is charged with first-degree aiding and abetting misconduct involving weapons, a felony that has a maximum possible punishment of 10 years in prison; first-degree failure to stop at the direction of a peace officer, a felony that can carry up to five years in prison, and contempt of court for failing to report to jail on a previous case

Delgado is charged with first-degree misconduct involving weapons, a Class A felony punishable up to 20 years in prison; third-degree misconduct involving weapons, a Class C felony punishable up to five years in prison; and three counts of third-degree assault, a class C felony punishable up to five years in prison.

The man who told officers Delgado fired at him also said a woman in the car, believed to be Stubblefield, said something about “getting shot” over a dog right before he heard a pop, according to the affidavit.

Police said the bullet traveled through the front window of a house where two other people were nearby, went through a lamp, then lodged into a wall.

In court Friday, Stubblefield’s look was one of disbelief as Judge Thomas Nave recited her charges. She whispered and gestured repeatedly to Assistant Public Defender Eric Hedland, clearly in disagreement with what she was hearing.

Stubblefield claims she drove Delgado to the Bergman on Wednesday because he had some business there, and when she heard him “cock” his gun, she told him to put it away, according to the affidavit. She said she continued driving despite noticing that police officers were telling her to stop because she thought Delgado would shoot her.

“She ran from the police because she did not want anything to do with it,” according to the police report.

In 2015, Stubblefield was charged with resisting or interfering with an arrest, misconduct of a controlled substance and failure to appear in court twice, according to CourtView. Other various charges for Stubblefield are scattered over a nine-year period beginning in 2003.

Paige recommended Stubblefield’s bail be set at $10,000 and said that, considering her past, restrictions on holding any drugs not prescribed to her be added to the terms of her release.

“I can just say from experience with her that anytime there are drugs around, Ms. Stubblefield seems to be not so far behind,” Paige said.

Delgado has 21 prior criminal convictions, including a felony conviction for fourth-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance and seven other convictions of misdemeanor assault, according to CourtView.

Stubblefied is scheduled to appear again in court March 4. A court date for Delgado was not available by press time.
