Holdway stabbing
Cocke County authorities are continuing their investigation into a Tuesday morning incident on Silver Walk Way in Newport. Deputy Sgt. Brian Holt responded to the residence of Beth Gregg who had initially reported an accident. But upon arrival, the officer found William Chad Holdway with stab wounds. Gregg said the 35 year-old Holdway of Golf Course Road had knocked on her door asking that she call for an ambulance. She believed Holdawy had been injured in a traffic crash. Holdway had a stab wound to his abdomen and a cut on his hand and an apparent broken arm. He said he had argued with nearby resident, Kelly Saylor and while outside her home had been stabbed. Then the alleged assailant went back into her home and locked the door. Holdway said he broke his arm as he banged on the door seeking entry. Ms. Saylor told investigators that Holdway had pointed a gun at her and she in turn threw a knife at him. Holdway said the woman's statement was untrue, that he did not have a gun. The injured man was treated by First Call EMS personnel but declined transport to the hospital.He said he would drive to the emergency room for treatment.
