The blotter is derived from recent central dispatch records and incident reports of area police agencies.
Sullivan County Sheriff's Office
A woman at a Kingsport home was reportedly "causing problems" over court papers. Dispatch was advised she could possibly be armed with brass knuckles, as she is, "known to carry them."
A parent on Old Stage Road wanted to speak with police after their child was shot with a pellet gun by another youth.
A motorist called police from Silver Grove Road to report he had just wrecked his wife's truck. He allegedly cursed, admitted to dispatch that he was intoxicated then disconnected the call.
Kingsport Police Department
Police responded to a report of an assault at an East Stone Drive restaurant. The alleged victim stated he was eating with a woman — whom he shares a child with — when her husband entered. The husband allegedly pushed the other man over a table, then went outside and slashed a tire on his vehicle. When the alleged victim attempted to get the woman's husband to stay at the restaurant until police arrived, he allegedly accelerated his vehicle and swerved at the man — forcing him to jump out of the way to avoid being struck. The suspect was later located and arrested by Kingsport police, charged with aggravated assault and vandalism.
