Georgia investigators this week returned to Maryland, where they granted immunity to the driver of the limousine that took Ray Lewis and his companions from the scene of a double murder in Atlanta. Duane Fassett of Severn received a written immunity agreement on Monday guaranteeing that he would not face charges in the case, his attorney, David Irwin of Baltimore, said yesterday. Fassett spent several hours retelling his story to representatives of the Atlanta Police Department and the Fulton County District Attorneys' office, Irwin said.

ATLANTA - DUANE Fassett, the most famous limousine driver in recent Maryland history, must have missed sleep the night before his testimony against Ray Lewis. More than that, Fassett looked in every way like a man who has not known the peace of good sleep in months, tormented by memories of an early morning of killings in January and the prospect of having to testify against a young man he admired. In court here yesterday, Fassett's eyes were deep, dark craggy holes, hooded in worry. His brow was furrowed.

Centennial boys lacrosse coach Mike Siegert could not have asked for a more complete win than his Eagles' 8-7 overtime victory over defending state champion Mount Hebron on Friday night. With defense being the team's trademark and this year's strength -- particularly at midfield, led by senior standout Jonathan Stumpf -- Siegert and his staff challenged the attackmen to help make the difference. Sophomore Shane Jaeger opened the scoring, and Mark Watson found Zach Berstein in overtime to produce the game-winner.

A key prosecution witness in the assault and murder case against Ray Lewis told investigators that the player was a friend who, contrary to the testimony of another witness, was not drunk at the time two men were slain in Atlanta. Duane Fassett, the man who drove the rented, Glen Burnie-based stretch limousine in which Lewis and his party fled the scene of the Jan. 31 street brawl, also said he is sure Lewis did not have a knife when he allegedly punched one of the victims. Excerpts of handwritten notes, taken by Fulton County Assistant District Attorney Sheila Ross Finley during an interview with Fassett last month in Baltimore, were submitted yesterday in the court docket in Atlanta.

Ray Lewis' plea bargain appears to remove from the trial one of its more colorful and tragic figures, the limousine driver who painfully told jurors that Lewis had ordered him to say nothing about the incident that left the two men dead. Fulton County prosecutors informed the Anne Arundel State's Attorney's Office yesterday that they would not call Duane Fassett of Severn. The Atlanta authorities had earlier sent a subpoena to their Maryland counterparts to compel him to return to the stand.

ATLANTA - On a bad day for prosecutors in the murder trial of Ray Lewis, the judge scolded them yesterday for violating evidence-handling laws, and their key witness testified that he never saw the Ravens star kill or even hit anyone. The witness, Duane Fassett of Severn, drove the limousine used by Lewis and his two co-defendants on the morning of the killings. It was his description of the early-morning fight, and Lewis' role in it, that led police to arrest and charge Lewis, 25, and two other men with assault and murder.

Prosecutors have dropped charges against two men accused of raping a 19-year-old woman in Columbia, deciding that there was insufficient evidence to proceed with the case, said a spokesman for the Howard County state's attorney's office. Nathaniel Devon Yarborough, 19, and Ryan Quinton Fassett, 22, both of Columbia, faced charges of second-degree rape and second-degree and third-degree sex offenses after a police officer claimed to have seen three people sexually assaulting a woman in a car in the 10100 block of Twin Rivers Road in Columbia last month.

ATLANTA -- The driver of a limousine that carried Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis to posh Super Bowl parties has identified two of the player's friends as being involved in a fight that ended with two men fatally stabbed, a source familiar with the case said yesterday. After the scuffle outside an upscale nightclub, Lewis said, "Let's get out of here," and his driver, Duane Fassett, drove away with the football star and others, according to the source. Fassett saw the fight and helped Atlanta police identify two of the combatants, but did not see the stabbings, the source said.

ATLANTA - Jurors in the murder trial of Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis were led yesterday on a virtual tour of the crime scene by a detective who displayed gruesome photographs and blood-stained clothes. The detective, Kenneth Allen of the Atlanta Police Department, described in excruciating detail what he found at the scene after he arrived about 4:30 a.m. Jan. 31. Lying on the street was the body of Richard Lollar, a 24-year-old Decatur, Ga., barber who had died of stab wounds to the heart less than an hour earlier.

It's a long shot, but attorneys for Ray Lewis plan to argue that the case against the Ravens linebacker is so flimsy, he should be acquitted sooner rather than later. In fact, attorneys for all three defendants in Lewis' double-murder trial are expected to ask Judge Alice D. Bonner for a directed verdict - known in Maryland as a motion for judgment of acquittal - once the prosecution's case is complete. The chances of Bonner's releasing any of the defendants at that point is "very slight," according to Baltimore criminal defense attorney Warren Brown.

Prosecutors in the Ray Lewis case have offered immunity to a woman who was with him at the scene of the double murder in Atlanta, seeking her cooperation even though she has said he did not kill anyone. In another development in the case against the Ravens linebacker, an attorney for one of Lewis' co-defendants yesterday filed a motion suggesting that the victims may have been high on drugs and were aggressors in the fight that led to their stabbing deaths Jan. 31. Lewis has been indicted on charges of murder and assault in the deaths of Jacinth Baker, 21, and Richard Lollar, 24, both of Decatur, Ga. Two acquaintances of Lewis also have been indicted: Reginald Oakley, 31, of Baltimore, and Joseph L. Sweeting, 34, of Miami.
