Tyrell "Donut" is a former sixth grade student at Edward J. Tilghman Middle School.


Season 4

He is interested in cars and is an accomplished auto thief. He is friends with Namond Brice, Michael Lee and Randy Wagstaff. He brings Sergeant Carvers's attention to the group when he is spotted in a stolen Cadillac Escalade. Carver warns the boys that if he ties them to any further auto thefts he will organize alleyway beatings for each of them. Donut remains defiant, quietly remarking that Carver has a nice car as he walks away. Donut breaks into math teacher Roland Pryzbylewski's car when he locks his keys in it as he left his keys inside the car. When Randy is unexpectedly tasked with distributing Carcetti campaign literature on the day of the primary election, Donut steals an SUV to make the job go faster. Once Donut learns that Randy has already been paid upfront, he asks for his share of the "walk-around" money and leaves. Donut works with Namond and their even younger friend Kenard selling drugs around their school hours. Donut's carjacking abilities however get him into trouble with Corrupt patrolmen Patrol Officer Walker who breaks his fingers for no other reason than giving him additional paperwork to do on his shift. His last appearance in the series is in the Season 4 finale in which he drives by Namond Brice 's new home in a stolen car playing loud Hip Hop.[1]
