WELDON, N.C.--Lawmen want your help finding a man they say assaulted a sheriff's deputy.
Cedric Mills, 25, of Weldon in Halifax County is a wanted man. Lawmen there say Mills pushed a Halifax County Sheriff's deputy who was trying to investigate a domestic dispute reported on Chantilly Rd. in Weldon Tuesday night.
A press release from the Halifax County Sheriff's Office says Deputy Sealy tried to talk to the victim of an alleged domestic violence incident as they walked on the road. The report says Mills told Deputy Sealy he could not speak to the alleged victim. Deputy Sealy asked Mills to step aside. That's when, the press release says, Mills became irate.
Deputy Sealy tried to put Mills in handcuffs, but the press release says Mills pushed him away and ran off across a field. Mills did $200 worth of damage to the patrol car during the altercation, according to the press release.
Mills is wanted for assault on a government official, resisting a public officer and injury to personal property.
