SURGOINSVILLE — Several Hawkins County deputies converged on 570 Stoney Point Road in Surgoinsville early Saturday morning ready to face a potential gunman and hostage situation.

Instead, they found Kasie Danyell Crumley — who had allegedly told a 911 dispatcher she’d been shot and was being held captive — standing outside the residence with a phone in her hand.

Crumley, 33, 326 Oak Grove Road, Rogersville, allegedly admitted that she lied to a Hawkins County 911 dispatcher about being shot and being held captive so that police would respond faster.

The actual reason Crumley called 911 was never determined, however.

Crumley was arraigned Monday in Hawkins County Sessions Court on one count of felony filing a false report, as well as drug possession charges.

Shortly after 1 a.m. Saturday, the Hawkins County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to 570 Stoney Point Road in Surgoinsville after Crumley allegedly called 911 and stated she’d been shot in the arm with a pistol and was being held against her will in a bedroom.

Crumley identified her attacker to the 911 dispatcher as Joe Goodson.

Among those deputies who arrived at the scene was Sgt. Nathan Simpson, who stated in his report that Crumley didn’t appear to have been shot.

Simpson said Crumley was taken to a safe location and Goodson was “located and detained.”

“I checked the female for gunshot wounds and did not observe any,” Simpson said. “I asked her, ‘Where is your gunshot wound?’ She answered, ‘I haven’t been shot. I just told you that to get you here faster’.”

Crumley was then taken into custody on the filing a false report charge. She was searched, at which time deputies allegedly found her in possession of a Suboxone strip and a syringe in her pocket. In her purse, deputies allegedly found five melted Opanas on burnt spoons, one melted Opana in a silver container, five burnt spoons with an unknown white residue and one unknown white pill.

Crumley was additionally charged with possession of Schedule II narcotics, possession of Schedule III narcotics, possession of drug paraphernalia and violation of probation.

Following her arraignment Monday, Crumley remained held in the Hawkins County Jail on $50,000 bond.

After Crumley’s arrest, Goodson was released and was not charged in the incident.
