A deputy says he was driving past the Kelly One Stop store on Jonesville Road in Jonesville around 7:20 p.m. Friday. The incident reports shows the deputy saw a man crouched beside a car that had the word “cheeter” painted across the passenger side.

The deputy says Trammell was holding a can of spray paint when he saw him and he tried to run away. The deputy says he caught Trammell, recovered the spray paint can and put the man under arrest.

The incident report states Trammell told deputies he wanted to get back at his former girlfriend who worked at that store. The woman told deputies she wanted to press charges over the damage to her car.

Union County deputies say they found what Trammell said was a marijuana cigarette on him after they searched him following the arrest.

The correct spelling of the word in question is “cheater.”
