Man Surrenders in Dragging of Deputy
Posted February 9, 2007
Jollee Bedford Jr. of Louisburg surrendered in mid-afternoon, officials said. Deputies said they were discussing the incident with him and could not say what charges they would file.
According to investigators, Deputy Crystal Mitchell was responding to a call Tuesday that two individuals were trying to rob a man on foot on Sims Bridge Road.
Mitchell noticed two men punching one another and tried to break up the fight, authorities said. The men pulled a gun on the deputy and then tried to drive off while holding onto her, dragging her a few yards, according to the investigators.
Mitchell suffered minor injuries in the incident.
