A Stafford man ended Friday evening with a plethora of charges after a dispute and police chase in North Stafford.

On October 27th at 7:07 p.m. Deputy P.J. Leon responded to Standish Place for a disturbance. He learned Micah Kynard, 27, had been involved in a dispute with a family member. Kynard reportedly threatened to burn down the home and while driving on Garrisonville Road intentionally struck a family member’s car in traffic. Unfortunately, Kynard had fled the scene prior to law enforcement arrival.

Deputies canvassed the area and discovered Kynard had just driven down Elm Street without headlights, signaling the beginning of a nightmare of a call. Kynard called the Stafford County Emergency Communications Center several times and unleashed a tapestry of obscenity toward Communications Officers.

Deputy X.D. Bates located Kynard driving on Winding Creek Road and attempted a traffic stop. Kynard sped up to approximately 75 mph and then abruptly stopped in the roadway on Walpole Street. Instead of complying with commands to surrender, Kynard ran toward the wood line.

Sergeants E.E. West and M.L. Jacobeen had responded to assist and joined in the foot pursuit. Kynard was stymied by a fence in the woods and was quickly taken into custody. During his arrest he assaulted one of the deputies.

Kynard was charged with domestic assault and battery, assault and battery on law enforcement, threats to burn, eluding, obstruction, DUI, refusal, drinking while driving, aggressive driving, reckless driving, hit and run, failing to obey a highway sign, traffic lane violation, improper stopping, no headlights, fail to drive on the right side of the roadway and disorderly conduct on hospital grounds. He was additionally charged with 15 counts of falsely summonsing 911, annoying phone calls and threatening language over the phone- no one is going to say those things to our Telecommunicators. Kynard was held at the Rappahannock Regional Jail pending his ability to participate in a bond hearing.
