Man with extensive criminal record surrenders right before deputies bust into Summerfield home

Christopher Shane Fulk

Marion County sheriff’s deputies spent an hour outside a Summerfield home before a man being served a warrant finally surrendered and was charged with resisting arrest.

A Marion County Court order dated Feb. 4 revoked the bond of Christopher Shane Fulk, 44, of 5495 SE 145th St., who is awaiting trial on a charge of abusing an elderly or disabled adult. Deputies received word from witnesses that Fulk was at his home on Tuesday and they went to serve the warrant.

When they arrived, deputies knocked on the door and announced their presence but no one came to the door. After about an hour of knocking on the door and attempting to enter the residence, Fulk emerged.

Fulk told the deputies he was aware law enforcement was outside and that he had a warrant, but he didn’t want to come out of the residence because he didn’t want to go back to jail for something he didn’t do. He said he decided to surrender once he heard deputies say they were about to breach the door.

According to Marion County Jail records, Fulk has been arrested 25 times since 1994 on charges including numerous drug offenses and probation violations, battery (simple and domestic), battery on a law enforcement officer, intimidation, criminal mischief, driving with a suspended license, failure to pay child support, forgery, dealing in stolen property.

Fulk’s bond on the elderly abuse charge was revoked and he’ll face the new charge of resisting arrest on April 9.

Fulk was arrested last month and charged with knowingly driving with a suspended or revoked license after he was pulled over for having no tag light. He also was arrested in January 2015 on a host of drug charges after the Marion County Sheriff’s Office Tactical Investigation Unit received a tip about alleged drug activity in Summerfield.
