Subject of manhunt in Limestone County in custody
LIMESTONE COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) – WHNT News 19 has confirmed the subject of a manhunt in Limestone County is now in custody.
Our crew on the scene tells us authorities located 32-year-old Tony Dewayne Glover Wednesday morning.
Glover is accused of assaulting Limestone County Sheriff’s Deputy Jonathan Hardiman during a traffic stop on Tuesday. Officials say it happened in the Ardmore area near Sweet Springs Road and Brock Road. When Hardiman told Glover he had active warrants against him, Glover scuffled with Hardiman and ran.
Hardiman was taken to a local hospital to get checked out, but he is back home with only minor scratches, the sheriff said.
The search was called off Tuesday evening when tracking dogs lost Glover’s scent in the dense woods and swamp in northern Limestone County. Glover was able to elude authorities several times, due to the terrain.
Around 7 a.m. Wednesday, a resident on Leaning Pine Road saw Glover entering a trailer and contacted the Limestone County Sheriff’s Office. He was taken into custody shortly after.
Tony Glover has a long list of felony warrants in Limestone County, including Probation Revocation Failure to Register as Sex Offender. Officials said he will face new charges related to Tuesday’s situation also.
We are working to gather more details right now.
