The trooper wrote that he asked Wolfe if he had any weapons on him. Wolfe said he did and then attempted to reach a handgun in the front floorboard of the Jeep, according to the complaint. The officer grabbed Wolfe and took him to the back of the vehicle, according to the complaint.
"The accused repeatedly became belligerent, cursing and making inappropriate comments toward this officer," Green wrote in the complaint.
After his arrest, Wolfe was taken to State Police headquarters in South Charleston, Bailey said. Wolfe was not given a Breathalyzer test, he said.
It was there, while handcuffed, that Wolfe was beaten, Bailey said. He said he did not know if Green was the officer who struck Wolfe.
Wolfe suffered multiple facial fractures, including fractures to his eye socket, Bailey said.
Wolfe was taken from State Police headquarters to Thomas Memorial Hospital, where he received some treatment. He was then taken to South Central Regional Jail, Bailey said.
He was held at South Central Regional Jail for about nine hours and then arraigned by Kanawha County Magistrate Carol Fouty.
"It shocked me, to tell you the truth," Fouty said Wednesday. "His face was pretty messed up. His eye was still swollen shut."
Fouty said she released Wolfe on a personal recognizance bond because she thought he needed to go to the hospital.
"To me he looked so bad that I thought the jail would not have taken him in that condition," she said.
Wolfe quickly went to a doctor and was admitted to CAMC General Hospital on June 18, Bailey said. Wolfe stayed in the hospital until June 23, he said.
