Domestic flap leads to arrest


TAHLEQUAH — Cherokee County sheriff’s deputies arrested a man Thursday after responding to a domestic disturbance.

Tony Cord James, 61, of Park Hill, was arrested because he had outstanding warrants. Deputies said James resisted arrest and to be taken to the ground in order for officers to handcuff him.

In other matters, Raymond Ryder reported a stolen Power Max generator Thursday.

Deputies took a report last week after an 18-year-old woman struck a 16-year-old girl in the face.

Goldie James filed an information report Thursday.

Clayton Myers reported the theft of a 20-foot flatbed trailer Thursday from North 458 Road.

Daniel Buzzard reported a home burglary Thursday and said someone later fraudulently cashed two checks on his account.

George Shankle reported the theft of checks recently, and said some checks were later used at several locations around the county.

David Meigs told deputies he rented a residence to a man, and that man later removed a cook stove that was in the home. Deputies said the tenant told them the stove stopped working, so he took it to a scrap yard and received $8 for it. He said he had not replaced the stove, and had not spoken with the landlord about it.

Deputies took a report last week from an 18-year-old woman who said her ex-boyfriend has been threatening her and her family. Deputies later found that man walking along Fox Street in Tahlequah and served him with a protective order. The man laughed at the documents and threw them to the ground, according to deputies. He was told to pick them up or face charges of littering.

Deputies left and a few minutes later were told the man had contacted the victim on her phone.
