Officers responded Thursday night to a report of an intoxicated person damaging vehicles outside of Char Restaurant.  As the officers arrived the suspect ran and pursuing officers were chased and confronted by the suspect’s companions. Officers from Appalachian State University and the Watauga County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call for assistance from the officers.  Various forms of non-lethal force were used to take the group into custody.
