Fort Gibson man lands in jail

TAHLEQUAH — Cherokee County sheriff’s deputies arrested a man Tuesday when he allegedly chained a gate shut and laid in front of a vehicle, refusing to allow two women to leave.

James Taylor, 26, of Fort Gibson, was booked into the Cherokee County Detention Center for false imprisonment of a person.

Sheriff’s deputies received a call from OnStar representatives when two women claimed Taylor had placed his body in front of their truck.

He also had blocked their vehicle by shutting a gate and chaining it. When Deputy Daniel Pruitt arrived, Taylor allegedly admitted he had done so following an argument and fight with one of the women, who was at the property to retrieve her belongings.
