DEEPWATER, WV (LOOTPRESS) – A Fayette County man is back in jail after violating a domestic violence petition.
According to a Fayette County deputy, on Wednesday, July 21, 2021, this deputy was dispatch to a home on Boonesborough Rd in Deepwater for a domestic in progress. Once the deputy arrived on the scene, Tyler Schoolcraft exited the house from the front door screaming and being belligerent. As the deputy left his cruiser, Schoolcraft began screaming and yelling, asking if he was going to jail. The deputy said yes due to an active domestic violence petition against him.
Mr. Schoolcraft then stood up and took off into the home, refusing verbal commands from the deputy. Once the deputy got Mr. Schoolcraft in hand restraints, Schoolcraft said if he were going to jail, he would say that he had been raped to prevent him from going back to jail and wanted to go to the hospital.
Mr. Schoolcraft continued to state that he had been raped and needed medical attention. The deputy took the suspect to Montgomery General Hospital, where he was medically cleared.
Schoolcraft is charged with obstructing an officer and violation of a protective order. He is currently in Southern Regional Jail under a 3,000 dollar bond.
