Evading Arrest Added To Charges Against Local Man

Evading arrest has now been added to the list of outstanding charges against a Cookeville man. Police say they arrested 27-year-old Tyree Edward Brent of Jackson Street after they responded to a reported fight between two women at a home on Boatman Street. The women apparently did not want to press charges, so police left the scene, but soon learned that Brent was at the location and that he had outstanding warrants against him. As he returned to the scene, Officer Myke Green says he saw Brent running away. He chased him and says Brent gave up when challenged with a Taser. He was wanted on a city warrant for Violation of Bond Conditions and on a county warrant for violating probation.
