A deputy and a Whiteville Police officer sustained minor injuries after a fight with a pedestrian walking in the middle of Jefferson Street.

The officers were called around 6:30 p.m. Sunday to the 200 block of Jefferson, according to Whiteville Police reports. The suspect was in the roadway and was considered a danger to himself and motorists. The man had reportedly left the hospital during an involuntary commitment, according to police.

When officers approached the man, reports show, he said he was going home to feed his cat. The suspect began fighting with officers, but was detained and returned to the hospital for treatment. He also dented a patrol car during the melee, according to police reports.

Warrants are pending in the case.
