When a 23-year-old Centreville man called the Sheriff’s Office seeking help with a child locked inside a car, a deputy responded quickly.
However, when the deputy arrived at the vehicle on Estate Place in Ashburn just before 6 p.m. Aug. 29, there was no child inside. The caller, Anthony J. Combes II, still expected deputy to help him open the door so he could retrieve the keys locked inside, according to the Sheriff’s Office report.
Combes allegedly became disorderly when he was told the agency’s policy does not allow deputies to unlock vehicles in a non-emergency situation.
Combes was arrested and charged with calling or summoning emergency medical services without just cause and resisting/hindering a deputy sheriff.
He was released from the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center on an unsecured bond.
