Marshall man allegedly assaults sheriff’s deputies

Cory Slusser, 30, of Marshall, faces new charges of assault, felony assault on a law enforcement officer and obstruction of justice.
Already wanted in Rockingham County, a Marshall man faces three additional felony charges for assaulting sheriff’s deputies as they took him into custody Thursday night, according to the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office.

With a warrant for arrest on an assault charge in Rockingham against Cory Slusser, 30, the deputies went to a Marshall home in the 8400 block Ashby Ave. at 7:15 p.m., Sgt. Steve Lewis said.

The “deputies explained to Slusser the reason for being at the residence,” Sgt. Lewis wrote in a press release. “He then told the deputies that he was not going with law enforcement. While deputies attempted to take him into custody, Slusser resisted and struck a deputy in the chest area.

“Deputies were able to gain control of him and took Slusser into custody. During the confrontation, a sheriff’s deputy sustained minor abrasions to his arm.”

Mr. Slusser faces new charges of assault, felony assault on a law enforcement officer and obstruction of justice.

He remained in the Fauquier County Adult Detention Center without bond Friday.
