A 19-year-old man killed by a Hamblen County deputy during a struggle early Friday morning was from Jefferson County.

Anthony John Michael Zappier was a former student at Jefferson County High and worked at his parent’s restaurants in New Market and Morristown, acquaintances said. Services for Zappier are scheduled for tomorrow at Farrar Funeral Home in Jefferson City, two days after what would have been his 20th birthday.
