Isle of Wight, Va. – A 44-year-old Carrollton man is behind bars after officials say he choked an elderly woman and attacked an Isle of Wight deputy when he tried to intervene.

They say this happened on May 22nd in the 21000 block of Wigwam Circle.

Deputies received calls about a man who had mental problems at around 6:50 p.m.

When the deputy arrived he saw a naked man,  identified as Derrick Allison, choking a woman.

He tried to get in the middle and officials say that’s when Allison attacked the deputy.
