Alleged violent assaults against two people, resulting in one suffering a broken eye socket and leaving another with both eyes swollen shut, led to the arrest of a Shelbyville man Saturday.
James McKinley Jett, 50, of South Brittain Street, attacked a woman identified as his girlfriend and another man at a home on Highway 41A North, a Bedford County Sheriff’s Office report said.
Jett allegedly punched the man several times in the face, then punched her in the face without speaking to either one. He then told he would bring her clothes to the male victim’s home, which he left in the yard later in the day, according to the report.
The woman required treatment at a Nashville hospital for the eye socket, the BCSO said.
Jett was charted with burglary, domestic assault, and aggravated assault, and held on $250,000 bond. The burglary charge is due to Jett entering the man’s shop building, where he was allegedly assaulted, without permission.
Car theft, chase
Multiple charges have been filed against a man who allegedly stole a car from a Cottonwood Drive home early Saturday.
Security footage shows William L. Ballinger, 29, of Old Columbia Road getting into the 1996 Ford Taurus, which had been left unlocked with keys and the owner’s son’s wallet inside, and driving away.
A Cashapp account alert of the victim’s credit card being used at Walmart in Tullahoma was received at 10:26 a.m. The owner called around noon saying he’d seen the car in Tullahoma and was following it toward Shelbyville.
Moments later a 911 caller reported a white Taurus being driven recklessly at a high speed on Blue Ribbon Parkway. The car eventually was involved in a crash on North Main Street. Ballinger allegedly ran from the scene. Officers Jon Evans and James Sharp spotted Ballinger, who allegedly ran through woods and jumped a fence.
A taser shot to Ballinger’s leg by Evans was ineffective and he kept running before falling from exhaustion and surrendering at taser point on Hickory Drive, police said. and was arrested by police a short time later on Hickory Drive. The victim’s wallet was found on Ballinger, police said.
Ballinger was charged with driving on revoked license, evading by motor vehlation icle and foot, leaving scene of accident, reckless/careless driving, resist stop/frisk/halt/search, violation of probation, theft of property-motor vehicle, vandalism and burglary. He was held on $102,500 bond.
Not so safe
A man who allegedly spray painted his ex-girlfriend’s truck told a deputy he wanted to “make sure she was safe,” according to a BCSO report.
George Holder then fled into woods near an Old Columbia Road home where he was being questioned and escaped the grasp of pursuing deputy Donald Perdue.
Video footage shows Holder painting the truck at a market on Highway 41A North, the report said.
Holder has been trespassed from the property and has an order of protection against him. He will be charged with vandalism, criminal trespassing and violation of an order of protection when found.
A second person has been charged with staying in a Shelbyville motel without permission.
Non-guest Wesley Martin Worthington, 26, of Hickory Drive, allegedly ran from Best Western Celebration Inn, Madison Street, when confronted by an employee Friday. Worthington was arrested a short time later further down Madison Street by a Bedford County deputy.
Worthington was allegedly carrying a bag of marijuana and two room keys when found. He was charged with burglary, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a schedule 6 drug, and held on $12,500 bond.
