A former Mount Airy wrestler was arrested on Wednesday by the Surry County Sheriff’s Office.
Colton Lee McMillian, 19, of Mount Airy, is charged with assault and battery, larceny and injury to personal property. He was placed under a $5,500 secured bond with an April 4 court date.
In November, McMillian, a former starter on the high school wrestling team at 120 pounds, was arrested on outstanding warrants for an assault and battery charge that had been issued on Aug. 1 and two orders for arrest for failing to appear in court filed in May after he was encountered by police during a suspicious-person call at Holiday Inn Express on Oct. 24.
McMillian was jailed at that time under a $2,000 secured bond and slated for a Nov. 16 appearance in Surry District Court.
He also was arrested in April 2016 after being encountered on the walking trail at Riverside Park. He was charged with carrying concealed weapons, simple possession of a Schedule IV controlled substance and possession of a Schedule VI controlled substance (marijuana and clonazepam).
