Stafford, VA. Deputies with the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office arrested a wanted suspect on Monday following a domestic dispute on Butler Road in the southern end of the county.

On August 20, 2018, Deputy L.A. Burgess and Deputy B.U. Demirci responded to 242 Butler Road in reference to a female subject chasing a male subject down the road. Upon arrival, the deputies learned that the suspect, identified as William Mark Diaz Jr., 29, of Fredericksburg was wanted for a probation violation. Deputy Demirci and K9 “Steele” then responded to the area of Chatham Heights Road where the suspect had fled on foot.

A witness told the deputy that the suspect was a friend from his neighborhood and that he was giving him a ride home. During the ride, the suspect got into a verbal altercation with a female occupant in the vehicle. He became frustrated and pulled over at 242 Butler Road and exited the vehicle. The female subject said she then exited the vehicle and followed Diaz in an attempt to convince him to return to the vehicle.

A Reverse 911 was issued to local residents providing a description of the suspect and a K9 track was initiated. Deputies later learned Diaz had been picked up and driven to the Super 8 motel located on Warrenton Road. Deputies responded to the Super 8 motel where they established a perimeter and were able to make contact with the suspect who was found in a motel room.

The suspect was taken into custody without further incident and incarcerated at Rappahannock Regional Jail on outstanding warrants.
