An attempt to serve warrants at a Horseshoe Ridge Rd. residence led to an assault on a Macon County Detective and a subsequent arrest.
The incident took place last Wednesday afternoon when Detective Tim Holland went to serve a warrant on 34 year old William Dale Sheffield for failure to appear in court. According to Sheriff Robert Holland, when approached, Sheffield put his hands into a vehicle and as a result was ordered to show his hands by the officer. Upon this request he attempted to flee the scene with the officer giving chase. The two began to struggle when the suspect started trying to hit the pursuing officer. A knife became involved.
