Cocke County assaults
Cocke County authorities are investigating several recent alleged assault incidents. Deputy Sgt. Bob Schaff has issued a warrant charging Jeremy Lynn Reed with aggravated assault. Reed, 34, Old Greeneville Highway, Newport, allegedly blocked the roadway on Columbia Way. Kimberly Brown, reported she was delivering a pizza for Pizza Plus, when Reed blocked the roadway, exited his vehicle in an irate manner and waved a handgun at her. Reed was reportedly in his home when Sgt. Schaff went by later, but he refused to open his door. The subject reportedly had called the pizza business complaining that Brown was traveling at 60 mph on his road. Rebecca Hollifield, 42, South Highway 107, Del Rio, was jailed Thursday night by Deputy David Moriarty on two counts of assault. The officer was told Ms. Hollifield had been drinking before she pushed Justin Phillips, and then struck Samual Russell on the head, causing a laceration. The defendant fled the residence but was found a short distance away and then jailed. On Wednesday, Mary Keller, Meadow Wood Circle Dandridge, told Deputy Logan Starritt that she was at the home of her mother on Bat Harbor Road when she was assaulted. Keller said she argued with her brother and his wife, Sheila Keller, and as she turned to leave, Sheila Keller threw a handful of rocks, striking her on the head. The victim says her sister-in-law also made threats to harm her. No charges have been filed or arrest made.
