An Arnoldsburg man will be charged with the assault and battery of a police officer, the assault of an EMS worker among several other counts, after he allegedly drove his 1992 Mustang in the West Fork River near the mouth of Jesse's Run last week.

Authorities reported that David McNeely, about 30, left the scene after his auto landed partially submerged upside-down in the water, and could not be found when Calhoun EMS and the Arnoldsburg VFD arrived on the scene.

Chief Deputy Ron Bandy said he located McNeely at his nearby residence, when McNeely "sicked a Pit Bull and German Sheppard on me." Bandy said he returned McNeely to the wreck scene to have EMS evaluate him, after which he spat in Bandy's face and also spat on a member of the emergency squad.

McNeely reportedly struck Bandy with his fist.

Other charges expected to be filed against the Arnoldsburg man, include obstructing, driving suspended, leaving the scene of an accident and failure to maintain control.
