LIMESTONE COUNTY, Ala. – Tracking dogs lost the scent of a wanted man they were searching for in dense woods in northern Limestone County Tuesday evening.

Deputies suspended the search until Wednesday morning.

Members of several law enforcement agencies are looking for a man they said got into a scuffle with an officer and ran from a traffic stop Tuesday at 3:00 PM.

Officials say it happened in the Ardmore area near Sweet Springs Road and Brock Road. They are searching for 32-year-old Tony Dewayne Glover.

Officers on the scene said Glover got into a fight with a deputy during a traffic stop Tuesday afternoon. Glover ran away into a wooded area.

Authorities  deployed helicopters and K-9 units to find the man.

The unidentified deputy involved in the fight was taken to a local hospital to get checked out, but he is back home with only minor scratches, the sheriff says.

Wanted Man

Tony Glover has a long list of felony warrants in Limestone County, including  Probation Revocation Failure to Register as Sex Offender.

Officials say he will face new charges related to Tuesday’s situation also.

Alabama Law Enforcement Agency records show Glover was convicted in 2009 of sexual assault and battery of a 19-year-old woman.

If you have any information or know where Glover may be hiding, call the sheriff’s office at 256-232-0111.
