Deputies make several arrests after fight

TAHLEQUAH — Cherokee County sheriff’s deputies made several arrests Saturday after responding to a fight near the South Breeze Trailer Park.

Aaron Lee Duncan, 31, of Tahlequah, was booked for public intoxication.

Deputies were called back to the area later the same day and arrested Latisha Michelle French, 32, for driving under the influence of alcohol. French allegedly appeared on the scene while deputies were talking with other people about the previous call.

Christian Darryl Cookson, 43, of Tahlequah, was arrested Saturday for domestic assault and battery.

Denise Thompson, 51, of Tahlequah, was arrested last week for burglary after allegedly breaking into a home on North Bryant Road.

Linda Webster filed an intimidation report Sunday after a man entered a home uninvited.

Dwight Tannehill told deputies Sunday that his home was burglarized. Items missing included an iPod, two Davis 380 pistols, a Glock 40-caliber pistol, and medications.

James Delaney told deputies Sunday that he found a man on his property and asked him to leave, but ended up in a fight with the man, and the suspect bit Delaney on the jaw. Delaney said he later drove to a convenience store, and the suspect pulled up and rammed the front of Delaney’s vehicle, then left.

Eutimia Ramerez spoke to deputies last week after a list of items were stolen from a residence, including a Sieko watch, rings, bracelets and earrings, an iPod, jewelry boxes, credit cards, gold dollar coins, and a cell phone.

Deputies were called to War Eagle Resort Sunday after a visitor awoke and found another man asleep in his truck. Harry Payne said the man was in the passenger seat, and finally awoke and left. Deputies were able to identify the man, who eventually admitted he’d been drinking at a party the night before, but didn’t remember anything else until he awoke in the truck. Deputies said the man had a blood-alcohol content of .15, but he wasn’t arrested because the victim didn’t want to press charges.

Daniel Blake told deputies Sunday he was upstairs in his home when he heard another door downstairs open. Upon investigating, Blake found the door open and heard a car driving away from the house. Blake said nothing appeared to be missing, but said he’s had three similar incidents recently where property was stolen.

Helen Hall spoke to deputies last week about a black mare being lost, going astray, or being stolen.

John Neis filed a stolen-property report Friday. Neis said a propane business took his propane tank, even though he’d paid for the tank.

Deberah Simmons reported being punched in the nose by a family member last week.

Melissa Snow said she was assaulted over the weekend during an argument.

Vernie Luna said a thief took a Savage 17-caliber HMR bolt-action rifle.
