According to Cherokee County Sheriff Jeff Shaver, a Gaylesville man was arrested at approximately 9:32 p.m. Tuesday evening after deputies were called to a residence regarding a domestic disturbance involving a man in a fight with his son. Deputy Shane Thompson responded to the call and attempted to diffuse the situation, but the man, identified as 55 year old Derreck Lastinger, resisted arrest and fought the deputy also. Lastinger was injured in the scuffle and treated at a local hospital for his injuries before being booked into the Cherokee County Detention Facility. He is charged with third degree domestic violence and resisting arrest.
