Cops: Georgia man attempts to throw exercise equipment at deputies

NOTE: An earlier version of this story should have said “attempting to throw” regarding the exercise equipment.

A Flowery Branch man faces a dozen charges after threatening deputies and attempting to throw a large piece of exercise equipment onto them during a domestic investigation, authorities said.

David Umphreyville Sr., 52, was arrested at his home in the 6500 block of Samoa Way on Wednesday, the Hall County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release.

Deputies visited his house to investigate claims from a woman who lived in the home with him, according to the release.

When they arrived, Umphreyville allegedly threatened to do physical harm to several deputies before attempting to throw the piece of exercise equipment from an upstairs part of the home when they tried to arrest him, deputies said.

The release said alcohol is considered a factor in this incident.

Umphreyville remains in the Hall County Jail on a $24,400 bond, jail records show.

He faces four counts of aggravated assault on an officer, three county of terroristic threats and five counts of obstruction, according to jail records.

An investigation is ongoing.
