Fulton County Sheriff Walter Dillinger said a 9-1-1 call came into the office the morning of June 2 from the English residence on Squirrel Hill Road saying that Jesse English was destroying the house and car. "He was on a rampage," Dillinger said.
Before officers arrived at the English house, Dillinger said another call came in saying that Jesse English had left the residence and was at a house on Possum Trot Road.
Dillinger said that four officers along with himself and Salem Police Chief Albert Roork all responded to the call because English had resisted during a previous arrest.
"We just didn't want to take any chances. We didn't want anyone to get hurt," he said.
Last week, Dillinger said, English was arrested after allegedly stealing prescription medicines from two different homes in the area.
"He also had warrants from Sharp County at that time, so we let them have him and he bonded out from their's," Dillinger said. "We were going to pick him up later when we got our warrants. Then, this other came up."
Dillinger said that English did not resist arrest this time. "We didn't have any trouble at all, this time," he said. "He just went on a rampage because he thought his wife had turned him in. These pills, they're bad. They make them do crazy things."
English has been charged with: possession with the intent to deliver a controlled substance, Vicodin, (schedule III) a class B felony; possession with the intent to deliver a controlled substance, Tylenol with codine (schedule III) a class B felony; possession with the intent to deliver a controlled substance, Darvocet-N 100 (schedule IV) a class C felony; possession of a controlled substance, Endocet (schedule II) a class C felony; possession of a prescribed narcotic drug outside of the container in which it was dispensed.
