‘Rebel’ arrested for violating court order

TAHLEQUAH — Cherokee County sheriff’s deputies arrested a Park Hill man last weekend after an alleged violation of a protective order.

Charles Louis Collier, 57, was booked into the Cherokee County Detention Center on the violation. Deputies said Collier – who frequently refers to himself as “The Rebel” – was involved in an ongoing issue that ultimately ended up in court at the request of Adult Protective Services. A judge granted a protective order for the alleged victim in the case and ordered Collier to have no contact with the woman.

Collier was allegedly told to stay away from a certain trailer park as part of the protective order, but was seen there on Saturday. Deputies later spotted him and were involved in a struggle while trying to arrest Collier, who cursed the deputies and the Cherokee County court system, according to a report of the incident.

In other matters, Rebecca Reynolds spoke to deputies this week about receiving threats.

Kim Cunningham reported receiving threats Monday.

Cady Williams told deputies last week that a woman hit her, then sat on her and continued to hit her.

Joseph Grasshopper filed a report after a window on a truck was shattered, and the suspects took money and a Kindle Fire.

Employees at Carthage Drilling Inc. reported the theft of property this week, including a 4,000-watt generator, a torch, regulator bottles, 100-foot extension cords, and more.

Sarah Hall filed a report Saturday about her purse being stolen from her vehicle.
