CROSSVILLE MAN THREATENS TO KILL OFFICER DURING ARREST

SHARE:

A man who threatened first responders and the Crossville Police officer who arrested him was arrested Monday morning and charged with retaliation and other offenses.

Jerry Lynn Styles, 65, 519 Glenwood Circle, is charged with retaliation for past action, public intoxication and disorderly conduct. He was also served an attachment for failure to appear in court on an unrelated charge.

MPtl. Joel Stevens was among other officers and first responders called to the parking lot of Crossville Medical Group off Lantana Rd. Monday around 11:30 a.m.

The original call came from someone who reported that Stiles had been unconscious in his vehicle for about 30 minutes and it was feared he may have suffered a stroke or some other medical episode.

When Cumberland County Emergency Medical Services and Crossville Fire Department officials arrived on the scene and were able to wake the man, he reportedly poured what was left of a 24-ounce beer onto the pavement and threw the bottle into the back seat of his vehicle. FULL STORY HERE
