Monday, March 24th at about 5:15p.m., dispatch sent officers to 1301 CC Road in Kingston Springs for a “fight in progress”. When officers arrived they found a male suspect, (the resident) who had fired one shot at another male. After further investigation it was determined that the alleged shooter didn’t intend to harm that person, he was just “trying to scare him”, Kingston Springs Officer Thomas Royal explained, because he thought the other male was going to help in another fight between 2 females. Those two females were the resident’s wife and the other male’s aunt. That fight was spawned by an ongoing conflict on Facebook.
While officers were there, Royal and Officers Adam Rayburn and Walter Bannon with the Cheatham County Sherriff’s Department smelled the strong odor of marijuana coming from within the residence. “The male suspect admitted to having a small grow room in a back bathroom in the back of the house”, Royal explained. There was also “paraphernalia and other stuff consistent with the packaging and resale of marijuana in a back room of the residence.” There were 5 small plants found.
The resident was arrested at the scene and was charged with reckless endangerment, manufacture of marijuana for resale, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a weapon by a felon.
The resident is out on bond and his name is being withheld at this time, pending further investigation.
