Cocke County Deputy Jonathan Ochs said he was sent to the Newport Medical Center where he interviewed Presley Marine, 27, and George Brimer, 33. marine of Sevierville said she had recently been living with Derek Weisend, 31, at his St. Tide Hollow Road, Newport residence. Marine said she and Weisend argued early Sunday and then he grabbed her by the neck and choked her. The woman said she sent a text to next door resident Brimer, asking for his help. Brimer said when he arrived at the Weisend home, he was punched on the face and then the two men fought. Brimer and Marine were able to run to a nearby wooded area where they waited until Weisend went back into his home. At that point, they drove to the hospital for treatment of their injuries.
