Mobile County Sheriff’s Office hunting an assault suspect, whose father helped him get away from deputies.

Jeremy Allen Weaver, 29, is wanted for assaulting a drug dealer in Citronelle last month. Deputies went to arrest him at his father’s house in Chunchula, but the man distracted deputies long enough to allow Weaver to escape on foot. He hasn’t been seen since.

Weaver’s father was arrested for obstructing justice.

Weaver is 5 feet, 11 inches tall, and weighs 200 pounds. He has hazel eyes and short brown hair.

If you have seen him, or know where he’s hiding, call the FOX10 FUGITIVE FILES/CRIMESTOPPERS HOTLINE AT 251-208-7000.
