HOLMES COUNTY – A Bonifay man is charged following a brief pursuit that took place shortly after 9 p.m. Thursday, October 29.

A deputy with the Holmes County Sheriff’s Office attempted to conduct a traffic stop on St. Johns Road on a vehicle driven by 52-year-old James B. Wafford. Wafford disregarded the deputy’s emergency lights and sirens, turning north on Highway 79 and increasing speed to continue onto McGee Rd., Jenkins Rd., and Sims Blvd. before pulling into a residence and exiting the vehicle.

Wafford briefly refused to comply with the deputy’s verbal commands to show his hands but was quickly taken into custody. Wafford, who does not possess a valid driver’s license, was arrested and charged with fleeing/eluding, resisting an officer without violence, and cited with driving while license suspended (second offense).
