Collins charged with soliciting
A Newport man has been arrested by Hamblen County authorities after he allegedly propositioned a 17 year-old male, while wearing a dress. Hamblen County authorities say they arrested R.J.Collins, 74, Hidden Estates Way, Newport at the Cherokee Park campground. Officers say Collins went to the camper of the teen where he was propositioned, but the teen's father contacted the sheriff's department. A search of Collins' camper revealed additional women's clothes. He now is charged with solicitation of a minor, and is free on a $15,000 bond.
