On June 19, 2012, Deputy Matt Spink and Deputy Michael Northway pulled a vehicle over in an investigative traffic stop, to question known associates of a dangerous felon regarding his whereabouts. Unbeknown to them, Charles Wallace, the man they were looking for sat in the front passenger seat in a disguise. The driver, a woman, and a small child were also in the car. As deputies approached the car, Wallace rolled out of the vehicle and shot them with their weapons holstered. He fled on foot and the occupants in the vehicle fled as well.
