NEW VINEYARD - A local man was arrested Sunday, after he allegedly forced his way into a home on the Anson Valley Road and assaulted the resident.

Wilfred Daggett, 41 of New Vineyard, was charged with burglary, a Class B felony, as well as misdemeanor assault. The charges stem from an incident that allegedly occurred Sunday morning.

According to Sheriff Scott Nichols, Franklin County Sheriff's Office Deputy Brian McCormick responded at 8:07 a.m. to a residence on the Anson Valley Road after receiving an assault complaint.

As a result of the investigation, Daggett was arrested and taken to Franklin County Detention Center. The burglary charge was elevated to a Class B felony because Daggett "allegedly grabbed the victim by the throat after forcing his way into the home," Nichols said.

  1. This is all INcorrect information. Just because it’s online doesn’t mean it’s true!!! To sad to see false information.

  2. I wish they.d put in the whole story, but it.ll come out. There had to be a damn good reason. Wil is a good person, a decent man who would do anything for his people! Stick in there, we've got other fish to fry.

  3. A fair reading the article doesn't seem to contain any inaccuracies and otherwise seems to be competent reporting measured by a who/what/where/when yardstick

  4. Hard worker,and good family man. All facts should be stated, not just ones to make him look bad. He had good reasons for what he was accused of I am sure! Good honest person.

  5. I guess I don't see how this is inaccurate. A violent man broke into a home, placed his hands on someone and was arrested.
    He'll get his day in court and will pay for what he's done.
    Lets hope the judge is fair and he gets what he deserves.

  6. If wilfred is found innocent we'll never hear another word.
    Guilty until proven innocent in the press.
    Entirely possible he's a better man than the person he grabbed.

  7. but but he's a nice guy!

    The article isn't opinionated, it's stating facts.

    Regardless of his reasons, if he broke into someone's home and "grabbed the victim by the throat" a crime was committed.

    Nice guys can do bad things too. Wake up.

  8. @LOL the article is not true as someone who is closely associated with Wilfred, he is a good full hearted man. You don’t know the full story and until the day you do, keep it to yourself because clearly you don’t know the story besides the untrue facts that were stated, but hey “if it’s online it’s true” . I guess we’ll see what happens.

  9. Why is it called burglary? Clearly nothing was stolen....

  10. @Just Saying!
    Burglary, also called breaking and entering and sometimes housebreaking, is an unlawful entry into a building or other location for the purposes of committing an offence. Usually that offence is theft, but most jurisdictions include others within the ambit of burglary. Wikipedia

  11. Facebook,newspapers and police never lie!

  12. @ Just saying
    Definition of burglary
    entry into a building illegally with intent to commit a crime, especially theft. Won't matter once the DA makes a plea deal it will be reduced to a misdemeanor.

  13. @just saying : burglary is entry of a structure without permission. Theft is not necessary for the offense. I recommend reading “Burglar’s guide to the city” by Geoff Manaugh.

  14. I’m with you LOL. This article doesn’t seem unfairly written, it is stating what has happened thus far and why he was arrested. Even nice guys make the wrong choice(s) every now and then. As far as comments telling you to keep it to yourself.....ummmmmm if you don’t want to see people’s opinions don’t get arrested.

  15. Someone must’ve owed him something he is a great guy he would take the shirt off his back if it was his last great guy someone did him wrong and I hope he doesn’t get too much time for it

  16. I do believe the place he burglised HE (WILL) OWNED..... JUST SAYING I BET THERE WILL BE MORE TO THE STORY!!!!!

  17. Question for new vineyard resident so if you are a great guy, you just go and get what MUST be yours why not call the police?

  18. All that's reported is that he was there and that he was arrested. What part is untrue? He might be a great guy, with sound motivation, in the wrong place at the wrong time- but the Bulldog isn't speculating on his motivation, his guilt or innocence. The Bulldog has reported a plain, factual and simple story- he was there, someone called the PD, he was arrested. If those facts are incorrect, and you were there, please provide us specific info about the factual inaccuracies. Knowing that he's a good guy doesn't make the FACT of his arrest any less real.
