MARSHALL COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Authorities in Marshall County have captured a fugitive they were searching for Wednesday morning.

Marshall County Sheriff's deputies went to a home on Mildred Lane near Guntersville around 9:30 a.m. to arrest a suspect, 22-year-old Cory Jacob Daniels, on domestic violence charges.

Authorities were attempting to arrest Daniels when he assaulted a deputy and fled into a wooded area near Pleasant Hill Road and Pleasant Grove Cut Off.

Deputies set up a perimeter in the area and K9 units searched for the suspect. A helicopter was dispatched to assist in the search.

State Troopers, Albertville Police, and Guntersville Police also helped Marshall County deputies look for the fugitive.

Daniels was taken into custody before noon, Wednesday. He was taken to the hospital to be treated for dehydration. The deputy that was assaulted suffered only minor injuries.

Authorities charged Daniels with domestic violence by strangulation, second-degree assault, escape and resisting arrest. Once released from the hospital he'll be transferred to the Marshall County Jail.
