HILLSVILLE — A Thursday fight at a Main Street apartment led to eight charges against a 20-year-old Hillsville man, according to authorities.
Authorities say the arrest of Terrence Wheeler Kade came after town officers received a call of a fight in progress.
Officer Alan Gravley arrived on the scene first and saw a subject coming out of the apartment building where the call for help originated from, according to a news release from Hillsville Police Department.
Gravley attempted to talk to the man, but the subject fled on foot down Sprague Street to the area behind Guynn Hardware as other officers arrived.
Gravley chased the man on foot and Chief Steve Williams followed the suspect in his vehicle. They and a Carroll County deputy cornered the suspect on Center Street.
“The suspect continued to refuse to submit to verbal commands and, as a result, an ‘electronic control device’ was deployed,” the news release said.
Authorities took into custody Kade, who recently moved to Hillsville from the Winston-Salem, N.C., area.
Police interviewed the people who called for help, and then sought eight warrants against Kade.
The charges include three counts of assault and battery, two counts of destruction of property, one count of possession of drug paraphernalia, one count of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute within 1,000 feet of a school and one count of obstruction of justice.
Kade was taken to the New River Valley Regional Jail where bond was set at $2,500.
Other officers that assisted in the case included Sgt. James Alderman, Officer Ricky Hayes and Deputy Buck Cox.
