LEXINGTON, S.C. – Lexington County deputies have arrested a man accused of assaulting a deputy Tuesday night.
Allen Michael Rish, 33, is charged with assaulting a law enforcement officer while resisting arrest, giving false information to a law enforcement officer and a gun possession charge, according to arrest warrants.
“A deputy made contact with Rish Tuesday afternoon while patrolling on Calks Ferry Road,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “The deputy was somewhat familiar with Rish and thought he might be wanted on active warrants.”
Rish provided a fake name to the deputy and ran away, according to Koon.
“The deputy tried to use his Taser after telling Rish to stop several times,” Koon said. “Although the deputy was able to grab Rish, he kicked and punched the deputy in the face and ran away again.”
Koon said deputies searched for Rish within a wide area near Calks Ferry and Pond Branch roads Tuesday night. A community tip led deputies to a camper on Pond Branch Road Thursday.
“Deputies arrested Rish at the camper,” Koon said. “We also arrested Carrie Sabrina Isenhower and charged her with two counts of obstruction of justice.”
Isenhower was charged for lying to deputies searching for Rish Tuesday night and Thursday, according to Koon.
Rish and Isenhower are being held in the Lexington County Detention Center.
