Campbell jailed
A Cosby man who allegedly assaulted his wife and step-daughter and then threatened to burn down his home, was taken into custody on Wednesday. Cocke County Deputy Logan Starritt said Thomas Andy Campbell, 62, Green Forest Road, yelled at his wife Shirley Campbell, fired a .44 handgun into the air and told his wife "she was next". As Mrs. Campbell walked on her driveway on Wednesday, her husband allegedly sped up in his vehicle trying to run over her. Later he attempted to strike his step-daughter Selena Owens with a post-hole digger. Both women said Campbell was out of control and they feared for their lives, after Campbell also reportedly threatened to burn down the residence. The Cocke County Fire Department and Cosby Volunteer Fire Department wer4e sent to a staging area, and officers surrounded to home, because of Campbell's reported instability. The subject was ordered out of his home, but attempted to put his hands into his pockets after being ordered to not do so. Campbell was restrained and jailed on charges of two counts each aggravated domestic assault and domestic assault.
