Jackson, TN – The U.S. Marshals Service arrested Tanner Hedge,
24, of Benton County, for Kidnapping, Aggravated Assault (Domestic), and
Motor Vehicle Theft from Henderson County, Tenn. U.S. Marshal Tyreece
Miller announced today.
On April 21, Tanner Hedge was allegedly
involved in a Domestic Assault with his girlfriend. Hedge then took
their 11-month-old child and then stole his girlfriend’s car. The car
was later found hidden in Benton County near his father’s house. Hedge
then handed the child to his father’s friend and continued to flee law
enforcement, which he was not found after a search of the area.
On April 21, the Henderson County Sheriff’s Office issued a warrant for
Hedge for Kidnapping, Aggravated Assault (Domestic) and Motor vehicle
Theft. This case was adopted by the U.S. Marshals Two Rivers Violent
Fugitive Task Force (TRVFTF) in Jackson.
On April 27, the TRVFTF
apprehended Hedge at a residence near Patsy Lane in Cedar Grove. Hedge
was taken into custody without incident. Hedge will be held at the
Carroll County Jail awaiting extradition to Henderson County.
“The Marshals Service is glad to assist our partners and apprehend
Tanner Hedge for these crimes,” said U.S. Marshal Tyreece Miller. “We’re
even more relieved that the baby was returned, unharmed.”
