The Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) report assisting Prince William County Police (PWCP) in apprehending a Baltimore fugitive.

In the early morning hours of October 3 FCSO Deputies took pursuit of a person who crossed into the county from Prince William County.

The pursuit continued onto Route 29 with the suspect traveling south in the northbound lane.

PWCP successfully deployed tire deflation devices stopping the vehicle in the 5300 block of Lee Highway Route 29.

A struggle ensued when attempting to take the suspect into custody.

The suspect identified as Aion Wilson of Baltimore assaulted both a deputy from Fauquier County and a Prince William County officer.

Before the chase began the 39-year-old Wilson had already attempted to hit an officer after causing a disturbance at a residence in Gainesville.

Wilson had been banging on the door of the residence claiming to be a food delivery person but the person at the residence did not order food and called the police.

When police arrived, Wilson fled the scene narrowly missing one officer and the chase began.

Wilson faces several charges including driving under the influence, attempted malicious wounding and assault on a law enforcement officer, eluding and obstruction of justice.

Wilson is currently held without bond in Prince William County.
