On December 3, 2021, at appropriately 1630 hours, NCSO Deputy responded to a disturbance in Deweyville on CR 3128 and made contact with Chadwick Glen Nichols.  Nichols was very uncooperative and started a physical assault on the Deputy.  Nichols attempted to take the Deputy’s firearm and was unsuccessful.  NCSO Deputies, and Orange County Sheriff’s Office responded to assist in taking Nichols into custody.  His bond is listed as $110.000.00.  Nichols is currently charged with Assault Public Servant; trying to take a weapon from an Officer; Terroristic Threat of Family/Household and Resist arrest search or transportation.

Kudos and thanks to Orange County Sheriff’s Office as well as other agencies who do not hesitate to respond and assist an “Officer in Need of Back Up.”
