A Wytheville man claiming he was about to give birth was arrested March 6 after biting a deputy’s finger and attempting to escape custody. Richard Nichols, 28, of Stony Fork Road faces three charges in connection with the incident.

The arrest began with a deputy dispatched to Stony Fork Road regarding a stolen vehicle, according to Chief Deputy Keith Dunagan of the Wythe County Sheriff’s Office. The officer met with Luther Cline, who told him his truck had been stolen and wrecked across the road from his farm, Dunagan said.
