Kingsport Police Department
Police responded to a fight at an apartment on Lynn Garden Drive. The alleged victim was found bleeding from her hand, and claimed a man had kicked open her door. An officer observed no damage to the door, but did spot "blood splatter" on the walls and ceiling of the foyer. Further investigation revealed that she had actually exited her apartment with a pair of scissors and "went after" a man and a woman. When the man pushed her away she cut herself on the hand, then began intentionally "slinging" blood. She was arrested on two counts of aggravated assault, transported to the hospital for treatment of her laceration. Once there she became belligerent and started "flailing about" — kicking a nurse in the side of the head, spitting in an officer's face. That incident incurred two additional assault charges.
Over a three day period a man placed "numerous" calls to 911. He had no emergencies, prompting police to visit his home and issue a warning. He later made four separate calls to the central dispatch non-emergency number, inviting one of the officers, "to a shoot out as well as a cook out," at a local gun club. Twelve minutes later the man called to extend his invitation again — this time dialing 911. Police responded to his residence for the second time that day, leaving with him in custody for abuse of emergency services.
An altercation that began in Walmart spilled out onto Fort Henry Drive, where police spotted a man and woman running along the side of the road. As an officer stopped their patrol car the man was observed to grab the woman, "violently by the arm." He then he proceeded to "yell and cuss" while being questioned by police. He was arrested for domestic assault.
