Man wanted in Sept. shooting arrested

A 28-year-old man wanted by Oak Ridge Police in connection with a shooting incident and a subsequent car accident in September was arrested Sunday in Knox County. At last check, Larry Dewayne Williams remained in custody at the Knox County Jail on holds from oak Ridge and the US Marshals Service, pending his transfer back to Anderson County to face charges here. Williams is suspected of being involved in a shooting incident on Wakefield Road on the evening of September 21st and for being involved in a hit-and-run accident a few hours later involving three vehicles at the intersection of North Illinois Avenue and West Outer Drive that reportedly occurred when police tried to pull his vehicle over. Williams fled on foot following the crash and a search of the area by officers from numerous agencies proved unsuccessful. Investigators were able to track him to a nearby home, where a search warrant was served the following day that turned up over 49 grams of what was believed to be heroin as well as almost eight ounces of marijuana. Williams’ roommate, 22-year-old Chelsea Lively, was arrested at that time on drug charges. Details of Sunday’s arrest in Knoxville have not been made available but the Knox County Jail website indicates he will face a preliminary hearing on a charge of evading arrest (non-vehicle flight) on November 2nd. No one was injured in the September 21st shooting and the investigation into that case is ongoing.
