FAYETTEVILLE, Tenn. - Fayetteville police and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation arrest a man who took off with a woman's special needs daughter after an argument, authorities said.

Fayetteville police said Terry Dewayne Taylor, 60, dropped off a woman in the city limits Monday after a domestic disturbance and left with her SUV. The woman's 29-year-old daughter, who has cerebral palsy, also was in the SUV with Taylor, police said.

Authorities arrested Taylor in Sheffield, Alabama, after tracking his cell phone to the area. Taylor has ties to the area, they said.

Sheffield police said they found the stolen SUV at a house on Blake Street with the woman still sitting inside. Police entered the house and arrested Taylor. They're still trying to determine what led him to the house.

"There were other people at the residence, and they were not familiar with him," said Sheffield Police Lt. Ray Terry.

The young woman  was turned over to the custody of a family member.

Taylor was taken to the Lauderdale County Detention Center, where he was jailed on warrants he had there. There's no word on when he might be taken back to Tennessee to face charges there.
