40, was found hiding in his home Thursday night on Ovapa Road in the Ovapa
community of Clay County. Proctor is accused of leading deputies on a chase
last Wednesday. According to deputies a traffic stop was attempted
as Procter pulled out of a gas station in the Roane County community of
Amma without his lights on. Deputies say they ran his tags and the vehicle
came back as stolen, starting the pursuit. During the pursuit deputies
say Proctor rammed a cruiser repeatedly on Big Pigeon Road in Roane County,
with a deputy inside. That deputy was not injured. The chase ended in Clay
County on Ovapa Road, but Proctor was able to elude deputies.
Thursday night West Virginia State Police and members of the U.S. Marshalls
CUFFED Task Force found another stolen truck at Proctor's home on Ovapa
Road. They say he was hiding in the house when investigators tried to question
him about the vehicle.
