CARROLLTON, Va. (WAVY) – A 44-year-old man was arrested after deputies say he attacked an elderly woman and a deputy in Isle of Wight County last week.

According to a release from Isle of Wight County, deputies responded to a home in the 21000 block of Wigwam Circle in the Carrollton section of the county just before 7 p.m. May 21. There, they found a naked man, identified as Derrick Allison, choking an elderly woman.

“The deputy tried to separate the two and Allison became aggressive and attacked the deputy, growling and trying to bite his face,” the release said.

The deputy deployed two Taser cartridges during the altercation, but they had little effect on Allison, who removed the probes. Officials say it took several minutes of fighting and help from other deputies as well as officers from Smithfield before Allison was taken into custody.

Allison was taken to Riverside Regional Medical Center with minor injuries and the deputy was taken to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital. The extent of his injuries is unknown at this time.

Allison was charged with abduction, assault and battery of a law enforcement officer, disorderly conduct, strangulation, assault and battery, resisting arrest, destruction of property and assault and battery of a family member.
