Two charged for fighting deputies after Faith fireworks show Friday night


SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) - The Faith fireworks show on Friday night was followed by some additional explosive behavior, according to Rowan Sheriff's Captain John Sifford.

Sifford, who was working Friday night, said that two apparently drunk men got in the way of the Rowan Rescue Squad crew that was trying to get to a woman who was having breathing problems.

According to Sifford, as the crew tried to get through the crowd, two men didn't want to get out of their way.

"One of them said 'f*** you,' and it was basically downhill from there," Sifford said.

Sifford said that the two men, Zachary Lee Yarborough and Joshua Gray McDaniel, argued with deputies and there was also pushing and shoving as deputies tried to get the men out of the way.

Both men were charged with resisting police, Yarborough was charged with assault on a government official.

Rescue squad workers were able to treat the woman.

Once deputies took Yarborough and McDaniel to the Magistrate's Office, Yarborough used a racial slur against the Magistrate, according to the report.

Bond for Yarborough was set at $10,000.  McDaniel was given a bond of $1000.
