An Elizabethton man wanted for allegedly dragging a Washington County sheriff’s deputy with his vehicle was located by police Friday underneath a bed at 175 Candle Knob Road.
According to the WCSO, Terry M. Shepherd, 25, 192 Rosewood Circle, No. 4, was charged with multiple incidents including one involving a deputy March 21. The deputy was reportedly dragged alongside Shepherd’s vehicle while Shepherd was fleeing a traffic stop.
Shepherd was originally wanted by police on warrants of violation of probation involving charges of attempted second-degree murder, aggravated assault and evading arrest, the release said.
The WCSO said the new charges of aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, criminal impersonation, two counts of evading arrest, driving on a suspended or revoked license and obstruction of service of legal writ and process resulted from the traffic stop incident.
Shepherd’s girlfriend, Marah Ledford, 21, also of 192 Rosewood Circle, No. 4, was charged with filing a false statement or report to an officer, being an accessory after the fact and obstruction of a service of legal writ and process.
Shepherd and Ledford were taken to the Washington County Detention Center and are scheduled to appear in court Monday at 9 a.m.
Ledford was being held on $10,300 bond. Shepherd was held without bond because of probation violations.
