Schoolcraft arrest
A Cocke County man who was wanted but decided to flee officers. had a change of heart on Monday when he met Narco. Coty Schoolcraft, 31, Bruners Grove Road, Parrottsville, who was wanted on a child support charge as well as failure to appear for a Hamblen County court hearing, was arrested by Cocke County Deputy James Cupp. When Officer Cupp initially arrived at the Schoolcraft residence, the suspect was seen sprinting away into a nearby wooded area. He refused commands to stop, and so the officer's drug K9 Narco, chased the suspect, and Schoolcraft attempted to flee by climbing a tree. When he refused to surrender, Schoolcraft was bitten on the leg and foot by the K9, at which time he surrendered. As a result of the incident, Schoolcraft faces an additional resisting arrest charge.
