Deputy assaulted trying to serve warrant; two charged

CROSSVILLE — A man wanted on an attachment for failure to surrender to serve a jail sentence and for failing to appear in court now faces additional charges after he allegedly attacked a deputy who was trying to take him into custody.

Christopher Cain Monday, 33, 994 Main St., Crab Orchard, now faces additional charges of felony aggravated assault and resisting arrest filed by Cumberland County Sheriff's Sgt. Jason Elmore.

Elmore was trying to take Monday in to custody on outstanding warrants for failure to return to jai from a furlough on July 2 to serve the balance of his sentence, and for failing to appear in court on July 22 to answer charges of evading arrest and resisting arrest.

Charged with filing a false report to a police officer is Amanda Kay Findley, 34, 125 Acorn Lane. Her bond was set at $2,000 and she is to appear in General Sessions Court on Nov. 18.

Elmore, Investigator Jeff Slayton and Deputy David Moore traveled to a residence on Alcorn Lane last Tuesday to serve arrest warrants on Monday and came into contact with Brian and Amanda Findley. Brian Findley told officers he had seen Monday around the residence, but Amanda Findley said she had not seen the wanted man.

The officers then decided to search the residence and Elmore wrote in his report that he found Monday hiding behind a closet door. He quoted Monday as stating, "You are not taking me to jail!" The officer wrote in his report that Monday then started fighting with the officer, grabbing for his service revolver.

Monday is then accused of grabbing the officer in the groin region, with both men falling to the floor. Efforts to get the suspect to release his hold on the officer failed, despite the use of a taser on Monday. Elmore gained access to the taser and stunned Monday twice, resulting in the scuffle ending.

Monday was placed in jail to serve his sentence and bond was set at $5,500 on the remaining three charges, with a court date of Nov. 14 set.

Monday was charged in June of this year with evading arrest and resisting arrest when officers tried to take him into custody on a probation violation warrant in an unrelated case.

Elmore was injured in the scuffle but not critically hurt.
