Lenoir City man charged with attempted murder

A Lenoir City man was arrested for attempted second-degree murder stemming from a domestic dispute last week in the 8400 block of U.S. Highway 321.

A woman told police that an argument began when she woke up her boyfriend, Ron Jeffery Lee, 49, Lenoir City, as he was asleep in a chair in the living room, according to the arrest report.
 

"He became angry and started hitting her," Loudon County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Charlie Cosner wrote in the report. "She attempted to defend herself and struck him on the left side of the face with a baseball bat. She then left the residence and contacted Mr. Lee's brother about the incident, explaining ... she was upset that she hit him and wanted him to go to the hospital."
 
The woman came back to the home and tried to get Lee to get treated at the hospital, according to the report.
 
As she was speaking with him, Lee got a handgun that was beside his chair, and the woman ran away from the residence, Cosner wrote, noting that Lee then gave chase.
 
Lee "shot one time over (the woman) and causing her to stop for fear of her life," according to Cosner. "Mr. Lee walked in front of (the woman), pointed the handgun at her, threatened to kill her, and then shot (her) in the left shoulder."
 
Lee then proceeded to shoot the gun into the woods in the direction of the residence and forced the woman to go back into the home at gun point, according to the report.
 
Lee was charged with attempted second-degree murder, aggravated kidnapping and felon in possession of a handgun and held on $350,000 bond.

Reporting that a 2004 Chevrolet Suburban had been stolen from a business on Nelson Street, a man told police that Veal had been at his shop that morning and had apparently taken the sport utility vehicle, according to the arrest report. Veal called the man a short time later and said a woman had taken the vehicle, and he had followed her to an apartment complex. The Suburban was recovered, but multiple items, including a backpack, a Glock pistol, an iPad, credit cards and a Loudon County Sheriff's Office badge, were missing from the vehicle, according to the report.

Veal was subsequently located on foot at a shopping center in Turkey Creek, while Davis was found inside a vehicle at an apartment complex on Evans Lane.

The driver, Sammons, had "pin point eyes and was very shaky," Fritts wrote in the report. When asked if he had anything illegal on him, Sammons opened a cigarette box and tried to conceal a baggy with a white substance in it, according to the report. "I asked Mr. Sammons to hand me the bag and grabbed his wrist at which time Mr. Sammons began pulling away and resisting," Fritts wrote. "I took Sammons to the ground and Mr. Sammons continued to resist and hide his hands. When I was able to get Mr. Sammons' hands behind his back the baggy was unable to be located." The man told police that he threw the bag under the police car, but the item was never found, Fritts wrote.
