Man arrested after domestic dispute


News Staff Report

An Appleton Road resident was arrested Monday (November 5) after Escambia County deputies responded to a domestic dispute at his home.

According to a press release issued by ECSO Chief Deputy Mike Lambert, Timothy Wade McCall, 30, was taken into custody after law enforcement officers and tracking dogs caught up with him in a wooded area near his home.

Sheriff’s reports show that the incident began around 8:16 a.m. after 911 dispatchers received a report of a domestic incident between McCall and his wife.

A deputy was sent to the residence, and McCall fled from the residence on foot into the woods when the lawman arrived. Brewton police and tracking dogs from Holman prison joined the search, and after a lengthy period, the dog warden was able to apprehend McCall.

Specific charges against the Appleton Road man have not been disclosed, but Escambia County Detention Center records show that McCall was also out on bond at the time of the incident.

Escambia County Sheriff Grover Smith requested that the D.A. begin bond revocation proceedings on the prior charges. The sheriff said he “considered Timothy Wade McCall a danger to his family and himself” and that (McCall) “will not be leaving the facility during the remainder of his (Smith’s) term (in office) and hopefully for a long time thereafter.”
