WYOMING COUNTY, W.V. (LOOTPRESS) – A Wyoming County man has been arrested on domestic assault, disorderly conduct and obstruction charges following two separate incidents, one of which involved his wife.
The criminal complaint states that on Dec. 25, an officer was dispatched to a residence in Wyoming County on a domestic complaint.
Upon arrival at the home, the officer saw Randall Ackelson and his wife yelling at one another inside the home.
Both Ackelson and his wife agreed that it was just a verbal argument, but officers later obtained a copy of Mrs. Ackelson’s call to 911. During the call, Mrs. Ackelson told the operator that her husband had chased her outside in the snow.
At approximately 2 p.m. on Jan. 4, another officer was dispatched to a home in Pineville in reference to Ackelson chasing a woman down the street. The Wyoming County 911 Center informed the officer that Ackelson had a warrant for domestic battery through the Wyoming County Magistrate Court.
Ackelson was previously convicted of battery in 2009 and 2013.
When the officer arrived on the scene, he observed Ackelson fighting with a woman on the street and advised Ackelson that he had a warrant for his arrest.
According to reports, Ackelson took an aggressive stance with the officer as if he intended to fight. He began screaming profanities at both the officer and the woman. The officer placed Ackelson into custody without further physical incident; however, Ackelson continued to yell profanities.
Following his arrest, Ackelson was transported to the West Virginia State Police Jesse Detachment for processing and was charged with third offense of domestic assault, obstructing an officer and disorderly conduct.
He is currently in Southern Regional Jail under a $1,500 cash-only bond.
