Area man arrested on DUI charges

TAHLEQUAH — Cherokee County sheriff’s deputies arrested a Vian man last week for driving under the influence.

John Dennis Horn, 64, was stopped by deputies for speeding on State Highway 82 South. Deputies said Horn tried to get out of the truck and have a female passenger get into the driver’s seat before deputies caught up to the vehicle. Deputies said there were several open cans of beer in the vehicle and a half-full can of beer in the center console. Horn allegedly admitted he had been drinking, and told deputies he was speeding because he was en route to pick up his son. He allegedly apologized and acknowledged what he had done was “stupid,” according to deputies.

Shawna Lorendia Cooper, 29, of Tahlequah, was arrested for DUI last week.

In other matters, deputies took a report last week from Darlene Loudermilk, who said a man grabbed her by the shoulders and shoved her.

John Vannote told deputies a man broke a window out of his home last week.

Bobby Trammel reported theft of a chainsaw Friday.

Michael Robinett reported a 42-inch TV being stolen from a home.

September Taylor filed a report about harassment Friday.

Deputies filed a death-investigation report Saturday on Michael Wayne Scott, 40, of Tahlequah. Scott’s manner of death is listed as “unknown” on the report.
