A wanted Dumfries man was arrested after a Friday morning fracas outside a North Stafford hotel.

On September 9th at 12:34 a.m. Deputy R.T. Philippsen responded to Woodspring Suites at 1006 Corporate Drive for a disturbance. The investigation revealed two guests were involved in a dispute. One guest, later identified as Eric McDonald, 34, allegedly sucker punched the other guest in the face causing a minor injury.

The suspect was believed to be in a hotel room with Shaquan Royals, 33, of no fixed address. Royals indicated the suspect was not in the room and obstructed the investigation. Hotel management gave Royals 30 minutes to vacate the room, and as she left, McDonald exited as well.

Royals was arrested and charged with obstruction of justice. She was released by the magistrate on an unsecured bond. McDonald was charged with assault and battery and found to be wanted in Prince William County for assault and battery, vandalism and failure to appear. He was held at the Rappahannock Regional Jail without bond.
