Sometime during the chase, the man shot the gun in the officer’s direction. Frost was not struck and the chase continued a few more minutes before ending at Uwharrie Street.

The man was identified as Joseph Devon Clodfelter, 22, of 127 Dixon Street, Asheboro.

He was arrested and charged with attempted first degree murder, assault on a law enforcement officer with a firearm, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, communicating threats, discharging a firearm in the city limits and resist, obstruct, delay.

Clodfelter is in the Randolph County Jail under no bond.

        ……. and I thought you were suppose to be a Christian ??
        By the way, don’t you work for a living — according to McCroy’s new law you will sure have to get off your behind and go back to work now – Those lower benefits sure going to cut into your “lounge” time. Maybe you can get a job in one of those wrestling mags flexing your muscles — with your “Mohawk” you will be an instant success ….. ROFLMAO !
        Sure glad the Asheboro “home boys” put a hurting on the fool who shot at them — rather dumb–wouldn’t you say ?

        I wonder what would happen if I moved the message you both left for me on private F/B to your F/B page — you really have no idea who I may know that are friends with you and they could easily put that nasty post up ….. Wouldn’t that look nice ?

    He should be dead after shooting at the police but then the police would have been criticized for excessive force.

      You are always calling people retards or in slang “rere” — Just hope that your little Justice does not turn out to be a little imperfect down the road – how would you feel then ? Bet you would not be soaring so high — even eagle’s tail feathers will drag once in a while — Get a life, Justin, I know where the horse is tied !
