Officers arrived and made contact with several victims who stated that Terry Lynn Ashley age 45 of Flowertown Rd, Tullahoma had been asked to leave the residence due to him being impaired and causing a disturbance. One victim stated that Ashley then attempted to assault his teenage brother by chasing him and then threating to hit him. Allegedly the teenager attempted to step between the man and his grandfather and Ashley allegedly struck the teen.

Ashley is then accused of pulling a knife and allegedly threatening to kill the victim who had grabbed the tool.
Officers placed Ashley under arrest and transported him to the Coffee County jail.
