WHITE PINE—A man was arrested Saturday evening after he
allegedly opened fire on deputies who were responding to check on him at his
residence at 3291 Roy Messer Highway.
The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department (JCSD) received
a domestic welfare call at about 3 p.m. out of concern of Dana Morelock
recently losing his job.
Authorities reported the deputy arriving at the scene
found the gate to the property locked. Morelock began cursing and yelling from
his home for the deputy to leave his property. The home is located several
hundred yards from the gate.
