A Tennessee man is being held without bond in the Huron County Jail on an aggravated assault warrant.

Michael W. Brewer, 27, of Sevierville, is charged with a fourth-degree felony. Sevier County authorities accuse him of being a fugitive of justice, according to court records.

"He hit another man in the face with a plate. ... In doing so, he shattered the guy's cheekbone and (he) received other facial injuries," Huron County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Ted Patrick said.

On Monday night, Detective Bill Duncan and Deputy Brad Polacheck arrested Brewer in the 1800 block of Wenz Road in Wakeman. The deputies made the arrest after Tennessee authorities forwarded information to the sheriff's office.

"They must have had a tip he was heading this way," Patrick said. "We started looking for him Monday night (Aug. 26)."

Brewer was arrested and was transported to jail. He made his first appearance Tuesday in Huron County Common Pleas Court. His wife also was in the courtroom.

"He's still being held without bond," Patrick said.

Brewer's next extradition hearing is scheduled for Sept. 9.
