We present a model in which an up-type vectorlike quark (VLQ) is charged under a new U(1)(d) gauge force which kinetically mixes with the Standard Model hypercharge. The gauge boson of the U(1)(d) is the dark photon, gamma(d). Traditional searches for VLQs rely on decays into Standard Model electroweak bosons W, Z, or Higgs. However, since no evidence for VLQs has been found at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), it is imperative to search for other novel signatures of VLQs beyond their traditional decays. As we show, if the dark photon is much less massive than the Standard Model electroweak sector, M-gamma d << M-Z, for the large majority of the allowed parameter space the VLQ predominately decays into the dark photon and the dark Higgs that breaks the U(1)(d). That is, this VLQ is a "maverick top partner" with nontraditional decays. One of the appeals of this scenario is that pair production of the VLQ at the LHC occurs through the strong force and the rate is determined by the gauge structure. Hence, the production of the dark photon at the LHC only depends on the strong force and is largely independent of the small kinetic mixing with hypercharge. This scenario provides a robust framework to search for a light dark sector via searches for heavy colored particles at the LHC.
