A father and son were arrested on Wednesday after they failed to stop for police and were involved in the assault of another man, according to a report.
Daniel Lewis Lingerfeldt Sr., 38, and son Daniel Lewis Lingerfeldt Jr., 19, were arrested after a dispute with another York man.
The father has been charged with assault and vandalism. The son has been charged with failing to stop for police, but he notified officers at the arrest that he has a learning disorder and was confused during the incident.
According to the man who says he was assaulted, Lingerfeldt Sr. exited a vehicle and began threatening him while he was inside his car on Blackburn street. The man alleges Lingerfledt Sr. reached through the driver-side window to hit him while also kicking his car.
The man eventually drove off and pulled into a nearby home whose resident had witnessed the incident. According to the report, Lingerfeldt Sr. also threatened the witness.
An officer called to the scene noted that he was almost run over by a car driven by Lingerfeldt Jr. The report notes that the officer told the driver to stop multiple times while the driver’s father ordered him to continue driving away.
After the driver failed to stop for the initial officer, more officers were called to the scene. Lingerfeldt Jr. eventually stopped the car near Hall Street.
Lingerfeldt Sr. exited the vehicle but continued to talk on a cellphone and refused to comply with police orders, the report says. Eventually, Lingerfeldt Sr. was placed on the ground and arrested. His son was also arrested for failing to stop.
A fully loaded gun was found in the car’s glovebox along with a round of ammunition.
