New charges for man who ignored deputies

A Salisbury man now faces an additional charge of resisting a police officer after he didn’t come to the door when deputies with the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office came to serve a warrant for failure to appear.
Authorities said on Jan. 3 deputies went to the home of Jason Michael Wyatt, 28, 1140 Conestoga Trail, and knocked on the back door, but no one answered. A light came on, and deputies could hear two people talking.
The deputies announced who they were and knocked again, but no answer.
A car in the driveway was registered to Wyatt, so they knew he was possibly home, but more knocking only produced more movement and talking inside the home, and no Wyatt.
Deputies then said they were going to force entry, and still no one came. As they started to use a pry bar, Wyatt finally came to the door.
“They gave them numerous opportunities to come to the door and he did not,” Capt. John Sifford said.
Once at the magistrate’s office, Wyatt said the next time he was in trouble, the deputies would have to chase him, and that there wasn’t a deputy out there that could catch him, the report said.
When asked why he didn’t come to the door, the report stated Wyatt said, “No one wants to go to jail.”
Wyatt was given a $1,500 secured bond for the failure to appear charge, and a $200 secured bond for resisting an officer.
