Brad Eugene Proctor

A man who earlier in the week led Roane County deputies on a chase, damaging one of their cruisers is now in custody.

Deputies say that Brad Proctor, 40, was found hiding in his home Thursday night on Ovapa Road in the Ovapa community of Clay County.

According to deputies, a traffic stop was attempted as Procter pulled out of a gas station in the Roane County community of Amma without his lights on.

Roane deputies say they ran his tags and the vehicle came back as stolen, then they started the pursuit.

During the pursuit deputies say Proctor rammed a cruiser repeatedly on Big Pigeon Road in Roane County, with a deputy inside. That deputy was not injured.

The chase ended in Clay County on Ovapa Road, as Proctor was able to elude deputies.

Thursday night West Virginia State Police and members of the U.S. Marshalls CUFFED Task Force found another stolen truck at Proctor's home on Ovapa Road.

They say he was hiding in the house when investigators tried to question him about the vehicle.

Deputies also say they found several guns in his home and one of the rifles came back as stolen.

Proctor is charged with felony fleeing with reckless indifference, felony destruction of property because there is $12,000 worth of damage to the cruiser and attempted malicious assault for ramming of cruiser with the deputy inside.

Proctor is also expected to face more charges in the coming days from West Virginia State Police including possession of a stolen truck.
