On January 16, 2017 at approximately 11:22 p.m. Deputy D.G. French responded to a disturbance in the area of the Knight’s Inn at 386 Warrenton Road. Upon arrival Deputy French observed a male, later identified as George Graves, lying on the asphalt in the front parking lot. His lips were covered in blood and there was a cut above his eyebrow. Mr. Graves appeared to be intoxicated and was having trouble standing on his own. A female was attempting to assist him. As patrol units approached, Mr. Graves began shouting a steady stream of expletives directed toward them.
Deputy French began speaking with the female who advised there had been a verbal argument in one of the hotel rooms between Mr. Graves and another man. As Mr. Graves was leaving the hotel room the man pushed him down and he fell in the parking lot. When Deputy French attempted to interview Mr. Graves he continued to berate law enforcement with a tirade of expletives. Emergency Medical Services arrived to render aid and transported him to the hospital where he continued to be aggressive to medical personnel and the foul language remained unabated.
George Delany Graves, III, age 29 of Red Hill Road in Spotsylvania, VA, was charged with Assault and Battery of a Police Officer/Firefighter/Medical Personnel, Disorderly Conduct and Public Swearing and Intoxication. He was incarcerated at the Rappahannock Regional Jail on no bond.
