UNION COUNTY, S.C. (WSPA)- A man from Buffalo is facing several charges after deputies say he assaulted a deputy while trying to escape arrest.
Union County deputies were trying to arrest Adam Wayne Fisher Tuesday for outstanding warrants, including petit larceny after a woman told deputies that Fisher stole a check and her driver’s license.
The victim reported the incident to deputies on May 25th. According to the report, she said Fisher took one of her personal checks and her South Carolina driver’s license from her home in Buffalo.
She contacted the bank and put a stop payment on the check before it could be used. She told deputies that Fisher stole another check and cashed it at the Walmart in Union in the last few months, but she didn’t press charges at that time.
On Monday, Union County deputies went to a home in the Buffalo community to arrest Fisher. According to the report, when they put Fisher in handcuffs, he resisted and struck one of the deputies in the face, breaking the deputy’s glasses.
Another deputy came in to help but Fisher was able to break free and run into some nearby woods.
Other deputies, along with Sheriff David Taylor and a K9 unit responded and found Fisher.
He was arrested and sent to the hospital because of claims that he had taken several illegal drugs.
Fisher faces several charges including petit larceny, aggravated assault and resisting arrest.
