The man who hit an East Texas sheriff's deputy with a motorcycle has been arrested.

According to the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office, 36-year-old Richard Ryan Cook was taken into custody Tuesday at his residence on Farm-to-Market 747. He was arrested on a pardon and parole warrant.

Cook is charged with aggravated assault on a public servant. The arrest was without incident.

On August 9, 2013, at approximately 10:45 a.m., deputies attempted to serve Cook with a felony pardon and parole warrant at his residence. As deputies were approaching the residence on foot, the subject fled on a motorcycle, striking one of the deputies.

The deputy is in good condition.
