Good Samaritans help Marshall County deputy with struggling suspect


MARSHALL COUNTY, Ala. — A Georgia man is facing in charges in Marshall County after struggling with a sheriff’s deputy.

Salomon Andres Ramirez, of Blue Ridge, Ga., was arrested Tuesday after a confrontation with a Marshall County Sheriff’s Office lieutenant who responded to a suspicious vehicle call, the sheriff’s office said.

Lt. Willie Orr arrived at the call on Bonds Road in Guntersville and got into a scuffle with Ramirez while trying to identify him, authorities said. Orr used his Taser but it had not effect, the sheriff’s office said.
