A lengthy police pursuit through Cocke and Sevier counties Tuesday ended with a wanted man scrambling 20-30 feet up a tree in a failed effort to elude arrest.

It all began when, according to an incident report filed by Cocke County Sheriff K9 Deputy Jacob Damron, a white Cadillac Escalade being driven by Keenan Murphy, 35, of Greeneville, was spotted by Damron. Murphy was known to have felony warrants out of another county.
