Fugitive From Justice Captured

The man who allegedly ran over a Monterey police officer during an incident earlier this month is now behind bars. Authorities with the U-S Marshal's service arrested 44-year-old Charles Eugene Henry of Bear Creek Road in Crossville this week at a home in Cumberland County. Henry was already wanted on theft charges out of Putnam, Overton and Fentress counties when he allegedly jumped on an ATV back on May 6th and intentionally ran over Officer Jackie McQuiston at a home off Dripping Springs Road. McQuiston was slightly injured, but is back on the job. Henry is charged with aggravated assault and evading arrest in that case. Authorities say Henry had eluded capture on several occasions since being charged with stealing several thousand dollars worth of merchandise from homes all over the area.
