WINCHESTER – The Winchester Police Department captured a shooting suspect through a DUI checkpoint on Dec. 7.

WPD set up a DUI checkpoint in the 900 block of S. Pleasant Valley Rd. the night of Dec. 6. Just before 2 am on Dec. 7, a 2015 Mitsubishi passenger car was stopped by officers. The driver of the vehicle gave false information to the officers regarding his identity.

Following a brief investigation, George Lee Good of Front Royal was positively identified by the officers. According to a Winchester press release, he was taken into custody without incident for charges surrounding a Nov. 27 shooting in Warren County. Officers on scene searched Good’s vehicle and found tow firearms with ammunition. They also located an unknown crystal-like substance. It has been sent to the Forensic Lab for further examination.

Winchester police added charges for false identification to law enforcement, driving on a suspended license, and being a felon in possession of a weapon. A future charge regarding the unknown substance is also possible.

Good is currently held without bond in the Northwest Regional Adult Detention Center.

Earlier in the morning of Dec. 7, WPD arrested a man following an altercation with several officers. Hunter Dylan Hernandez was in the process of being arrested for driving under the influence when he attempted to fight off officers on location and flee from the scene.

Hernandez was stopped just after midnight near the intersection of E. Boscawen St. and N. Cameron St. in Winchester. He was driving without headlights and traveling the wrong way on a one-way street. Officers conducted field sobriety tests on Hernandez. He cooperated until the officers placed him under arrest for DUI. He then resisted the officers attempts to place him in custody, and eventually attempted to flee the scene by punching and shoving the officers away.

He was eventually subdued by officers and charged with driving under the influence, two counts of assault on law enforcement, destruction of property, obstructing justice, driving the wrong way on a one-way street and driving without headlights. Hernandez was initially transported to Winchester Medical Center for a wrist injury, and is now held without bond.

One officers sustained a shoulder injury, and another received treatment for injuries to the face and hands. A 2016 Mini Cooper was also damaged during the altercation.
