Man attacks Marshall Co. deputy | Crime
Guntersville, AL (WAFF) - It took several deputies to stop an out of control suspect in Marshall County over the weekend.
Sheriff Scott Walls says that a deputy was driving on Ringold Street in Guntersville when he was nearly hit head-on by another car. The deputy stopped that car, but things went downhill quickly.
The driver, later identified as 33 year old Louis Hunter of Gadsden, reportedly attacked the deputy during the stop. The deputy fired his taser at the man, but it had no apparent effect. According to police reports, Hunter attacked the deputy again, then ran off behind a nearby apartment building.
Backup arrived a short time later, and they were able to track down the suspect. Hunter was arrested and charged with assault, resisting arrest, giving a false name, reckless driving and driving with a suspended license. He's being held without bond.
