A Chemung County man has been arrested on multiple charges after assaulting two Chemung County Sheriff’s Deputies. Deputies were contacted by a female in Horseheads who said that her ex-boyfriend, 35-year-old Kevin Searfoss, repeatedly texted and called her, despite an order of protection against him. While on scene, deputies called Searfoss, identified themselves as Sheriff’s Deputies, and told Searfoss he must cease contact. Searfoss hung up on them. Minutes later, he showed up on scene while deputies were still there. He forced his way into the building, and immediately knocked one deputy to the ground, and pinned one to a wall, forcing him in a headlock. Deputies then tased Searfoss to subdue him. The deputies received minor injuries as a result of the incident. Searfoss has since been charged with burglary, assault, and criminal contempt. He was sent to the Chemung County Jail on $200,000 cash bail, or $400,000 property bond.
