Following a manhunt early this morning, sheriff's deputies in Levy, Fla. apprehended 30-year-old Chad Floyd Jeter who is wanted for the armed robbery of First National Bank &Trust Tuesday afternoon.
According to Atmore Public Safety Director Glenn Carlee, he received a phone call just after 4 a.m. this morning that a sheriff's deputy in Levy, Fla. had approached Jeter on suspicion and had been injured.
"The deputy approached him and he (Jeter) stabbed him in the neck behind the ear, but authorities said that it is non-life threatening," Carlee said.
A foot pursuit through the marshes involving the U.S. Coast Guard then ensued and Jeter was later captured and taken into custody around 6:15 a.m.
Carlee said Jeter now faces charges in Levy, Fla., adding that at some point he will be extradited back to Escambia County, Alabama by the sheriff's office.
