CHEROKEE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - A DeKalb County man was arrested on warrants from Cherokee County related to a home invasion where two victims were stabbed. 

Officers were looking for Jeremy Don Williams, 34 of Fort Payne, when he was spotted in a vehicle by a Drug Task Force agent. 

Williams fled the scene and patrol officers followed him for a short distance on County Road 116 until he slid into a ditch at the intersection of 116 and County Road 85. 

He was taken into custody after a brief scuffle and one officer was kicked. 

Williams was taken to the DeKalb County Detention Center where he was booked in on charges of attempting to elude and resisting arrest. 

He was transferred to the Cherokee County Detention Center on charges of first degree burglary and second degree assault.

"We are glad to get this person for Cherokee County, Harris said. "The incident he was involved in over there was very violent and he had threatened suicide before he would go back to jail. Our officers did a good job of ending this chase quickly and safely."

Harris said officers used a stun gun on Williams to prevent further injuries to himself and the officers.
