ARMSTRONG CREEK, WV (WOAY) – Two Armstrong Creek men are facing charges after fleeing from police.
According to Sheriff Mike Fridley, last night, a Fayette County Sheriff’s Deputy attempted to stop a vehicle before it fled in the Armstrong Creek area. The Deputy located the vehicle nearby on a back road.
As law enforcement approached the car, the two occupants exited the vehicle and fled on foot. One subject was found by the Deputy and a assisting Smithers PD officer. The subject was combative and attempted to grab the officers gun. Local citizens siezed the other subject and detained him until officers could arrive and take custody.
Andrew Proctor, of Armstrong Creek, is charged with Fleeing in a Vehicle, Obstruction and Fleeing on Foot.
Codie Pauley, also of Armstrong Creek, is charged with Obstruction, Fleeing on Foot and Attempting to Disarm an Officer, and Battery on an Officer.
They will now await court proceedings.
