Man Wanted on Warrants Is Arrested by Sheriff's Deputies

By  | 

A Tallahassee man wanted on several charges is captured after trying to elude sheriff's deputies.

Deputies say 33-year-old Gervane Hunter had outstanding warrants and was on the run from authorities. Hunter made a phone call to family members to meet him in the parking lot of the old Publix on 5810 North Monroe Street around 11:30 p.m. Thursday night.

Deputies heard of the plan and waited at the location for Hunter to arrive. Deputies say when Hunter appeared they attempted to apprehend him, but Hunter fled, trying to run over two sheriff's deputies in the process.

The pursuit turned into a foot chase near Ghetty Road and Highway 20 West, and Hunter was finally apprehended.

He's currently in the Leon County Jail being charged with sexual battery, possession of cocaine, marijuana and paraphernalia, giving a false name to law enforcement officers, two counts of aggravated assault with a motor vehicle on law enforcement officers, eluding law enforcement officers, reckless driving and resisting arrest without violence.

Deputies say more charges are pending in reference to eluding Florida Highway Patrol in October.
