Abingdon Police Department
For Immediate Release
On Monday, December 12, 2016, at approximately 10:53 AM, Officers J.D. Brummitt and K.R. Richardson attempted a paper service to 243 Buckingham Court, Abingdon. Timothy O. Snow, 35, of the residence, answered the door while holding what appeared to be a marijuana cigarette in his hand. Officers advised Snow to discard his marijuana and attempted to serve the warrants against him for a domestic assault that occurred the previous evening. Snow gave the appearance that he was going to comply with the officers, but once outside he became agitated and ran from the officers. After a brief foot chase across Buckingham Court, Clark Street, and Court Street, Snow attempted to hide under a porch. A citizen alerted other officers in the area of where Snow was attempting to hide. Officer Brummitt located Snow and he was taken into custody.
Snow was served two warrants for Assault and Battery of a Family Member, in violation of § 18.2-57.2 of the Code of Virginia. In addition, charges were obtained for Resisting Arrest, in violation of § 18.2-479.1 of the Code of Virginia; and Possession of Marijuana, in violation of § 18.2-250.1 of the Code of Virginia. He is being held in the Southwest Virginia Regional Jail without bond.
