Disturbance report lands woman in jail

TAHLEQUAH — Cherokee County sheriff’s deputies arrested a woman Tuesday after responding to a disturbance.

Deputy Daniel Pruitt said he arrived and met Michelle Boydston, 47, outside of the home. Boydston appeared to be “very intoxicated,” Pruitt said, and claimed she had been assaulted by a man who was also breaking her belongings. Pruitt said he tried to speak with the other person involved in the disturbance, but Boydston yelled at the deputy and continued to interfere as the officer tried to investigate. Boydston allegedly refused to calm down and allow the deputy to continue his investigation, so she was arrested for public intoxication and obstruction.

In other matters, deputies arrested Keith E. Carter, 41, of Tahlequah, Wednesday for domestic assault and battery. Deputies said Carter assaulted Pamela Carter.

Investigators took a report from Robert Karr this week about the possible contamination of corn feed on his property in western Cherokee County. Karr believes the corn feed he leaves for deer has been poisoned, or that deer repellent has been applied to the property. Karr said he uses the land for hunting and allows veterans to use the property. Many of the deer harvested on the land are donated to needy families for food, but this year, Karr has seen a lack of wildlife compared to previous years. According to a report filed by investigators, Karr bought the land in 2004 and since then has received threats from a person who disapproves of deer hunting.
