Buckner arrest
Newport police who responded to a Wednesday report of a man ramming a vehicle in the Walmart parking lot, jailed a Bybee man. Patrol Officer Chris Silvers says after he arrived at the scene at 9:30 pm, witnesses told him that Dustin Wayne Buckner, 24, Buckner Road, had rammed the rear of a 1990 Buick operated by Clara Cupp, 19, Lonesome Pine Road, Bybee. Cupp told police that she and her boyfriend Buckner had argued, and he dropped her off in the parking lot. As Cupp attempted to drive from the store, he rammed her auto. Witnesses, Austin Rose, Parrottsville and Derek Cleveland, Cosby, intervened, asking Buckner to calm down. Then Rose said Buckner tried to run over both he and Cleveland. Buckner denied the allegations saying he was trying to get away from the men who were trying to rob him. And although Buckner had an odor of alcohol on his person, he denied drinking. Officer Silvers said no injuries resulted from the incident however the rear of the Cupp vehicle sustained heavy damage. Buckner was jailed on three counts Aggravated Assault, DUI, Reckless Driving and Leaving The Scene Of An Accident. His bond is set at $38,000.
