In the early morning hours of December 13th, 2022, officers from the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Department obtained a search warrant for a residence in Bear Paw, NC after a disturbance call made to 911 dispatch hours earlier.
In addition to obtaining the search warrant, officers from the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Department also requested assistance from the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians’ SWAT team and a siege of the residence was conducted.
Just before 5 AM that morning, SWAT officers tossed a robot equipped with cameras into the residence and awoke the sleeping couple.

William Ray Pruitt, 56, who is the former Center Hill police chief, was arrested in December of 2022 for allegedly sexually battering a then-14-year-old girl while using a deadly weapon in 2020.
According to an affidavit from the Lake County Sheriff’s Office, the victim, now 16, did not tell anyone for two years because she was afraid. Documents state that Pruitt would harass the teen and threaten to kill himself.
According to court documents, in March of 2022, a sign appeared in a redacted location, apparently found by the victim, that referenced “Libby.” “Libby” is reportedly the name that Pruitt told the victim he would give their child if she became pregnant as a result of the sexual battery, as “Libby” is his mother’s name.
According to law enforcement, the teen reported Pruitt attempting to force her off the road while she was driving home from school in August of 2022. The same month, the teen says she was followed by a vehicle flashing its lights and honking its horn. The occupant of the vehicle, which she told police she recognized as an employee of Pruitt, handed her a piece of paper and said Pruitt wanted her to have it.”

HERNANDO COUNTY, Fla. – A former Hernando County deputy was arrested for sexual battery after coercing a victim to have sexual relations with him, the sheriff’s office said.
According to investigators, the former deputy, 30-year-old Zachary Carter, was in uniform and on duty during two different occasions earlier this year. The Hernando County Sheriff’s Office said Carter indicated that the victim would face arrest for failing to comply.
