Jerry Lynn Ramsey, 20, turned himself in at the Carter County Detention Center at 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, after he learned there was an arrest warrant charging him with aggravated assault.
The charge stems from an alleged domestic disturbance inside a vehicle about 1:25 p.m. Monday. Deputies responded to the incident on U.S. Highway 19E and spoke with a woman who said Ramsey cut her with a knife, grabbed her throat and hit her head against the vehicle window during a fight.
Deputies said Ramsey and the vehicle were gone when they arrived. Based on evidence and statements at the scene, an arrest warrant for Ramsey was issued.
