Bolser mower incident
A Cocke County man sustained non-life threatening injuries Wednesday in a riding lawn mower incident. Deputy Michael Shelton said he went to Meadows Way at 4 pm where he found a riding mower overturned on top of James Eugene Bolser, 55, Rocky Bluff Way, Newport. After the mower was removed, Bolser was airlifted to a Greeneville hospital for treatment. A witness, Patrick Sims, reported that he saw the mower come off a hill near the Bolser residence, appearing as though the brakes were not working. The mower crossed Meadows Way "swaying back and forth before striking a standing fence and flipping onto it's side", the officer said.
