Warren County man arrested after pointing rifle at deputies

Published 8:07 pm Sunday, August 30, 2020

A Warren County man is in jail, facing charges connected to him pointing a weapon at Warren County Sheriff deputies Saturday.

At around 7 p.m. Saturday, deputies responded to a disturbance call at a home on the 100 block of Jones Road. When they arrived, they found Scott Wolfe in the driveway.

As the deputies got out of their vehicles, Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace said Wolfe turned and pointed a high-powered rifle at them. Deputies then took defensive positions behind their vehicles as Wolfe then started to walk away. Pace said Wolfe then placed the rifle on the ground and then ran into a wooded area nearby.

As soon as additional units arrived, an hours-long search of the area began that included a number of outbuildings. Pace said the search for Wolfe was suspended once it became too dark.

Deputies returned to the Jones Road home just after 10 a.m. Sunday and found Wolfe sitting on the front steps of his home. He was taken into custody without incident.

Pace said Wolfe is charged with assault on law enforcement officers and is currently being held in the Warren County Jail. Wolfe is expected to make his initial court appearance Monday.
