Man accused of hitting Pasco sheriff's sergeant arrested in Tampa

TAMPA — The U.S. Marshals Service arrested a man Wednesday whom the Pasco County Sheriff's Office accused of hitting a sergeant in the head earlier this week.

Anthony Casey, 21, was arrested at the Suburban Hotel on Hillsborough Avenue in Tampa about 2:30 a.m., according to the Sheriff's Office. He was booked into the Orient Road Jail in Tampa on outstanding warrants and will be questioned by authorities about Monday's incident.

Casey and Michael William Ross, 21, were seen running into the Groves subdivision in Land O'Lakes. The two fit the description of prowlers seen peering into cars, according to the Sheriff's Office. Sgt. Bill McVey pulled over the two, who were in a car with expired tags, and recognized Casey, who has an extensive criminal record.

Casey hit McVey in the head and ran, deputies said, and Ross followed, both disappearing into nearby woods.

Authorities plan to question Ross about reports of prowling at the Groves. Ross' last known address is 37470 Acorn Loop in Dade City.
