City man charged after I-81 blowup

WINCHESTER -- State police charged a city man with three crimes Saturday afternoon after he got into a dispute in his car on Interstate 81, walked down the highway and assaulted a driver.

Around noon, there was a report of a domestic dispute on northbound I-81 at mile marker 315, Sgt. F.L. Tyler said, and once Trooper J.A. Wade arrived on scene, Frederick County Sheriff's Office deputies were already present and trying to apprehend a male subject.

Through an investigation, Wade found that Tyler Lee Ramey, 27, of Winchester, had met a woman that he has a child with in Kernstown, and they were going to Winchester to eat. In the car, Ramey became combative and argumentative, Tyler said, and the female stopped the car and asked him to get out.

Ramey walked southbound in the northbound lanes, and cars had to stop to avoid hitting him. He jumped on one vehicle, causing damage to the windshield, Tyler said.

Ramey then ran across the median and into southbound lanes, where drivers had already seen what was going on northbound. Tyler said one driver was assaulted by the suspect before finally being arrested.

Wade charged Ramey with interfering with traffic, destruction of property and being a pedestrian on the interstate. The man was taken to Winchester Medical Center after he went before a magistrate, Tyler said.

Additional information from the Sheriff's Office was unavailable.
