Tuesday afternoon the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office reported that 39-year-old Jeremy “Pee Wee” Crane of Cedar Bluff has been taken into custody.

Back on April 13th of this year, deputies responded to a residence on County Road 585 in Cedar Bluff on Wednesday evening, after receiving a 911 call regarding a domestic altercation.

Crane was inside a vehicle in the yard when deputies arrived. A deputy walked toward the vehicle to talk to Crane when he took off and allegedly struck the deputy with the vehicle.

Crane drove into the woods where he abandoned the vehicle and then ran on foot and could not be located after a brief search.

The Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office reported that the deputy received minor injuries.
