ONLEY, Va.- A Virginia man was arrested Friday morning for assaulting an Accomack County sheriff's deputy.

Edward C. Brabham, of Suffolk, Virginia, was wanted for larceny at the Regal Inn in Onley. Brabham allegedly took an undisclosed amount of money from a customer's room and took off in a Burgundy Blazer, heading south on Lankford Highway, the sheriff's office said. 

A couple hours later, a deputy observed a car at a body shop on Gospel Temple Road in Keller that matched  Brabham's car. When a deputy approached him to take him into custody, Brabham allegedly began to assault the deputy, attempting to take his service weapon, the sheriff's office said. 

After a brief struggle, the Brabham allegedly attempted to leave in a vehicle and crashed after driving a short distance. He was apprehended by other deputies who had arrived on scene.

Brabham was charged with grand larceny, attempt to flee law enforcement, assault and battery on law enforcement, attempt to disarm law enforcement, possession of marijuana, obstruction of justice and fail to drive in right lane. He's being held at the Accomack County Jail with bond denied.
