Richard Lee Beall

Richard Lee Beall, 42, of 425 Oak Ridge Drive was charged with assault by pointing a gun, resisting arrest and three counts of assault on a law-enforcement officer with a gun.
Surry County sheriff’s dispatchers got a call at 8:11 p.m. reporting a domestic assault at Beall’s home.
The caller said that everyone but Beall was out of the house.
When officers got to the house about 9:20 p.m. to serve arrest warrants, they saw him looking out a window pointing a pistol.
A few minutes later, Beall fired the gun at them. Nearby houses were evacuated, and neighbors were not allowed in the area.
Beall finally surrendered to officers at 4:13 a.m. yesterday.
He was being held in the Surry County Jail last night. His bond has been set at $500,000.
