Newport road rage incident
An arrest has been made in a road rage incident on August 2 in the parking lot of Tennessee State Bank in Newport. Jacob Kyle Ledford, 25, Armory Road, Newport, was arrested by Cocke County Sgt. Heath Will on Tuesday. Ledford is charged with two counts of aggravated assault, as well as leaving the scene of an accident, and driving on a revoked license. Kimberly Ellison, Elana Lane, Newport, told Newport Patrol Officer Brandon Cassidy her car was rammed at 1:19 pm as she used the ATM at the bank on Epley Road. Ellison said as she used the ATM, a skinny/tall white male pulled up to her auto in a silver Honda Accord, got out and angrily accused her of taking his money from the ATM. The woman says she told her accuser she did not get his money, but he later rammed the rear of her car before speeding away. Ms. Ellison told the officer her neck and back were hurting after the incident but she insisted on driving herself to the Newport Medical Center for treatment. Warrants for Ledford were issued by Newport Detective Jason Ramsey.
