Police Arrest Man After He Fights Them

A Tennessee man is in custody after fleeing from police and then fighting with officers during his arrest on Wednesday. Police say officers were called to a home on Old North Friendship Road, where a woman told them she had asked the man, 24-year-old Daytrien Hunt of Milan Tennessee, repeatedly to leave the home and that he refused. Officers say Hunt told them he would leave to go to the home of another friend nearby on Old Friendship Road. While they allowed Hunt to retrieve his things, officers learned Hunt had two outstanding bench warrants. When Hunt was told he was under arrest for the warrants, officers say he dropped his things and fled on foot. After losing sight of Hunt during the chase, officers were able to locate the home Hunt had originally told them he would go to. After getting permission to search the home officers say they found Hunt under a bed holding a pair of scissors to his neck. He then scuffled with officers, causing a slight head injury one officer before being subdued and arrested. After the incident police say they found marijuana and a marijuana grinder while searching the property Hunt abandoned. Along with being arrested on the two bench warrants for failure to appear, Hunt now faces charges of second-degree fleeing or evading police, possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia, resisting arrest, and third-degree assault on a police officer.
