A Wheeling man is behind bars Tuesday facing numerous charges after an incident on Wheeling Island Sunday evening.
When police were called to the Burger King on Zane Street for a fight, 21-year-old Demetrius Nathaniel Paige reportedly took off on foot. Police chased him south on Zane Street until he finally stopped on Virginia Street, when a K-9 officer was released.
Witnesses say Paige had punched his girlfriend in the face several times. They also say Paige was already wanted on an outstanding battery charge. He's also charged with domestic battery and obstructing a police officer. Paige is being held in the Northern Regional Jail pending arraignment.
