Man Charged with Running Over Henderson Co. Deputy Last Year

After almost a year on the run, the man accused of trying to run over a Henderson County is behind bars. Troy Deshawn Williams, 20, has been a wanted man since September 3 of last year, when he is accused of trying to run over Henderson County Deputy Anthony Woodfin who had pulled him over. Woodfin said when he told Williams he was going to arrest him for driving on a suspended license, Williams hit the accelerator knocking him to the ground. It was not until this week that investigators caught up with Williams in Parkers Crossroads. They said he and Shannon McCauley, 20, stole the credit card of a Department of Children’s Services worker who was trying to help them and the two children with them. Each faces four counts of using a stolen credit card. But most importantly for Captain Woodfin, who returned to work, Williams is off the street. “He was glad. It has been nearly a year since this all went down,” said Captain Tracy Grisham of the Henderson County Sheriff’s Department. “Captain Woodfin was kind of silent over the phone for just a few seconds. You could tell he was glad we had finally caught him.” Williams faces six charges from last year, including aggravated assault on a police officer. Both remain jailed and are set to make their first court appearance next Tuesday.
