Hamilton County Deputy Assaulted During Arson Investigation

     Hamilton County authorities say an arson investigation led to a suspect being tased and deputy assaulted.
     23-year old Traven Williams faces several charges including aggravated assault.
     The investigation began at a home on Hillsdale Circle late Monday night.
     Deputies responded to a house fire there and learned the property owners suspected their grandson tried to burn their house down with them inside.
     Officers found matches outside the house… and when they tried to talk to Williams he became combative — hitting a deputy in the head.
     Authorities took Williams into custody and E-M-S took the injured deputy to the hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
