On 28 August at approximately 7:30pm Constable Daniel Castle stopped a vehicle for a minor traffic violation. After identifying the passenger as Nick May, 34, of Webbville, he placed Nick under arrest for an outstanding warrant.
At that time, May began to resist arrest. May broke free and ran. As they went into a bamboo thicket, May threw an unknown object, which hit the officer in the neck.
May was able to get away, but that all changed after Lawrence County Sheriff Deputy Mike Housinger arrived. A canvas of the area resulted in his quick capture after he was found hiding in a nearby home.
Castle was treated for his injuries at TRMC. May is currently lodged in the BSRDC and is charged with assault of a police officer, felony evading on foot, resisting arrest and drug paraphernalia.
A joint investigation is still open through D.I.C.E. If you have any information concerning drug activity, please reach out to the Louisa police Department, Lawrence County Sheriffs Department or your district Constable.
