Hill arrest
A man who allegedly threatened to set fire to the home of his girlfriend Saturday afternoon and then fired a weapon, now is in custody on a number of charges. Cocke County Deputy Lt. Michael Whitmer was told that Izack Bryan Hill, 20, Rebels Road, Newport, was in the home of Kimberlyn Gentry, on Lindsey Gap Road, Cosby, just before 5 pm, when he allegedly poured gasoline on the living room floor of the mobile home and threatened to burn down the residence. Ms. Genry said after Hill poured gasoline in the home, she called her grandmother, and in turn, her grandfather Tim Costner came to the home and ordered Hill to leave. Hill then allegedly struck Costner on the face. As Costner and his wife Kim left, Hill reportedly fired a 9mm handgun in the air. Lt. Whitmer said upon arrival, he found Tim Costner with a swollen and bruised eye. Ms. Gentry went back into the home to get her infant child and officers discovered a strong odor of gasoline in the home as well as an oily substance all over the living room floor. And a small lighter was found on the floor. Hill had fled the scene but was located later walking on Hartford Road. When Hill was told to "show his hands," Deputy Wes Keys says the subject threw the loaded handgun to the side of the road. He was jailed on charges of Aggravated Domestic Assault, Attempted Arson, two counts Reckless Endangerment and the Unlawful Carrying or Possession of a Weapon.
