A man who injured a deputy by slamming his arm in the door as he was trying to arrest him has been sentenced to 90 days in jail.
The man, Trey A. Cole, 22, was charged with aggravated assault on an officer, resisting arrest and evading arrest. He has also been charged with violating his probation. He entered guilty pleas to the evading and probation charges and was ordered to serve 90 days of an 11-month, 29-day sentence for the assault which left deputy Brystol Davis with injuries.
According to the deputy, he went to a residence on Ingle Drive on an unrelated call and was met by Cole when he knocked.
“I knew he had outstanding warrants against him,” Davis recalled, noting he told the suspect he was under arrest.
It was then that Cole reportedly tried to get away. “He slammed the door on my right arm and ran inside.”
Davis was able to pull his arm from the door and give pursuit. “I heard glass break in the back side of the address,” the deputy revealed. “I saw Cole at the broken window and told him he was under arrest for a second time.”
Davis said he tried to grab Cole again but the suspect was able to pull away and run out the door, temporarily evading arrest.
