Niota man charged with assault, drugs

A Niota man was taken to Loudon County Jail over the weekend on drug and assault charges after law enforcement was called to a domestic dispute in the 900 block of Spring Street.

Responding to the call Saturday afternoon, Loudon County Sheriff's Office Deputy J.C. Schultz spoke with a woman, who told deputies that she and her boyfriend, Jeremiah Jason Hightshoe, 36, Niota, went out to get some food and returned to the residence, according to the arrest report. The woman and another man were sitting on a bed eating and told Hightshoe to leave, Schultz wrote in the report.

"Mr. Hightshoe knocked on the bedroom window and told (the woman) 'to get your ass outside' and had a machete," Schultz wrote. "(The woman) asked Mr. Hightshoe to leave and told him that she would call him. Mr. Hightshoe broke out the window and threatened to cut (the woman's) throat."
 
The woman said Hightshoe sometimes "flips out" and had threatened her in the past, according to Schultz.
 
While retrieving the machete, which was located in a Honda Osyssey van, Schultz found a glass pipe with residue lying on the floor, according to the report. Schultz also found 1.7 grams of a substance that tested positive for methamphetamine in the vehicle and an unidentified brown powder that weighed 0.7 grams, according to the report. Police also located two other glass pipes and a propane torch.
 
Inside the residence, police found three metal pipes with marijuana residue on the other man's bed, according to the report.
 
Hightshoe was charged with domestic assault, possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia and held without bond.
 
Man arrested in dispute with grandmother
 
A Loudon man is facing numerous charges related to stolen cash and a vehicle theft stemming from a domestic disturbance with his grandmother at a residence on Poplar Springs Road.
 
Responding to a call of a vehicle theft, LCSO Deputy Kenny Palmer spoke with a woman, who said her grandson, Bevan Hunter Thompson, 23, Loudon, wanted her to give him some money, and he became upset when she told him she was not going to give him money, according to the arrest report.
 
The woman told police that Thompson threw and smashed her phone on the ground and doused water on her office computer, Palmer wrote. Thompson then left the residence, came back and continued asking for money.
 
When she refused the request, Thompson "grabbed her by the arm and started twisting," according to the report. Thompson then grabbed her by the neck, put her in a headlock and pushed the woman onto the bed, Palmer wrote. Thompson then got her purse and went outside.
 
"(The woman) stated that he then came back inside with her purse and told her he didn't mean for it to go down this way," Palmer wrote.
 
About $130 was missing from the woman's purse, and Thompson took her Toyota Prius without her permission.
