Officers arrest man after chase

JACKSONVILLE —  A 27-year-old man was arrested just after 2 a.m. Tuesday after leading officers on a chase from a county disturbance.

David Bryan Tant of Jacksonville was found at a residence on Madison Street hiding behind an air-conditioning unit. He was charged on warrants for possession of a gambling device and forgery. Other charges were pending Tuesday morning, officials said.

Cherokee County sheriff's officers received a call about a disturbance on County Road 3408 in the early morning hours, and Tant reportedly left the location in a pickup.

According to officials, he entered the city limits on U.S. Hwy. 175.  Jacksonville police put spikes out on Kickapoo Street, and the pickup came to a stop at the corner of Kickapoo and Pineda.

Tant then left the truck and fled on foot, running to the Madison Street location.
