A Cherokee County man was arrested Tuesday for aggravated assault of a public servant after hitting a sheriff's deputy with a motorcycle last week.

Richard Ryan Cook, 36, was arrested about 2:30 p.m. at his home on Farm-to-Market Road 747, according to a news release from the Cherokee Couny Sheriff's Office.

Cook had three warrants for his arrest, including aggravated assault of a public servant, felony aggravated assault and a parole violation warrant, according to officials.

On Aug. 9, deputies attempted to arrest Cook on two of the warrants at his home, but as deputies came up to the house, Cook fled on a motorcycle and struck one of the deputies as he was leaving, according to the release.

The deputy was in good condition following the incident.
