POWELL, Tenn. — A wanted man in Anderson County now faces more charges for resisting arrest and assault after he refused to be taken into custody.
According to the Anderson Co Sheriff's Office, bail bondsmen were attempting to take Rickey Moore, 44, into custody at a home on Bison Court in Powell. He was wanted on two outstanding warrants for Failure to Appear and a Criminal Capias.
