SYLVESTER — Officials say Cagney Jermaine Frier, 29, was arrested Monday in Sylvester on a variety of charges stemming from three separate incidents.

Kenneth Washington with the Sylvester Police Department said that Frier was wanted by the Sylvester police on charges of battery, interference with a 911 emergency call, cruelty to children, theft by taking, obscene communication and fighting words, giving a false name to an officer, obstruction of officers and possession of less than an ounce of marijuana.

The initial charges against Frier were based on the his alleged behavior during two incidents on Sunday at Hamilton Circle in Sylvester, Washington said.

Shortly after noon on Monday, Frier was sighted by police as he was riding in a red pickup truck, Washington said. When officers used blue lights and a siren to signal him to pull over, Frier ran from the truck.

Washington said that police chased Frier from Seabrook Drive to U.S. Highway 82 East to Kings Way Apartments, where Friers was apprehended. The charges of possession of marijuana and obstruction of officers were added against Frier before he was transported to the Worth County Jail, Washington said.
