Ball Bat and Argument Leads to Arrest of a Cannon Co. Man
According to Sheriff’s Department reports, Cannon County deputies responded to a Short Mountain Road residence and upon arrival made contact with Russell Walls who was walking across the front yard with blood on his face and was very irate. He stated that he had been arguing with his family and his sister attacked him by striking him in the head with a baseball bat.
Deputies then went to speak to Russell’s sister Jennifer. Jennifer stated that Russell had been at the residence to see his son. All of a sudden he became aggressive and went after her with a metal object in his hands stating that he was going to kill her. Jennifer stated she was in fear of serious bodily injury and that’s when she picked up a baseball bat and hit him with it in self-defense. When the two were separated, Jennifer stated that Russell grabbed a bat and broke all the windows out of her vehicle parked in the driveway.
Other family members were present when the incident happened. Mr. Walls was placed under arrest for aggravated domestic assault and Vandalism over $1,000. He will answer to the charges on July 5th in Cannon County General Sessions Court. (WGNS Radio)
