Yesterday morning, the Walton County Sheriff’s Office was contacted in reference to a domestic violence situation at a Santa Rosa Beach residence. Further investigation revealed the subject in question had a current no contact order for previous domestic violence. After leaving the residence, a deputy observed the suspect, Bob Junior Fisher, driving a vehicle described by the victim. In an attempt to conduct a traffic stop, Fisher jumped out of the vehicle and fled into the woods on foot. A perimeter was quickly set up by the Sheriff’s Office and Walton Correctional Institute K9 Unit responded to the scene. A short while later, Fisher was apprehended and arrested without incident.
Fisher, 39, of Santa Rosa Beach, was charged with resisting an officer without violence, fleeing and eluding law enforcement, driving while license suspended or revoked and violating a no contact order for domestic violence.
South Bureau District Lieutenant, Doc Savage stated “The Sheriff’s Office is extremely grateful for our citizens who supported us yesterday morning. The drivers were paying attention, slowing their speed and moving over, which allowed our law enforcement personnel to apprehend Mr. Fisher in a safe manner off Hwy 98.”
