Man charged with strangulation, fleeing
BY JOSHUA FRYE
A local man is facing multiple charges including strangulation after he fled from a residence on foot after law enforcement officials were called to the scene of a domestic dispute.
Escambia County Sheriff Grover Smith said that the sheriff’s department received a 911 call around 8:16 a.m., Monday, to 6091 Appleton Road in reference to a domestic dispute between a husband and wife.
When a deputy arrived, Timothy Wade McCall fled from the scene on foot into the woods.
Officers from the Brewton Police Department also helped.
McCall is charged with domestic violence third degree – menacing, two counts of domestic violence by strangulation, fleeing and attempting to elude.
McCall was also out on bond for a previous charge, and the ECSO has requested that District Attorney Steve Billy begin proceedings to revoke McCall’s bond on prior charges.
“Timothy Wade McCall is a danger to his family and himself, and he will not be leaving the facility during the remainder of my (sheriff’s) term and hopefully for a long time thereafter,” Smith said.
