A Coffee County man was booked in at the Coffee County Jail last week, charged with domestic violence and violation of an order of protection.
Phillip Wayne Coppinger faces those charges after an alleged incident involving his wife. Deputy Charles Taylor, received a call of a female attempting to get away from a male subject at Par 4 Market, on the McMinnville Highway in Manchester. While enroute Taylor was advised that the man had left the Par 4 parking lot traveling eastbound on McMinnville Highway in a gray Dodge van. After traveling toward McMinnville Taylor had no contact with the vehicle. Taylor then went back to Par 4 Market and found Coffee County Ambulance personnel with an Asian female identified as the man’s wife. The female was visibly shaken and had bruises on her arms, back, neck and a scratch on the left side of her face. She told the deputy that her husband, (Phillip Wayne Coppinger) had assaulted her while driving the vehicle from the Budget Motel in Manchester the night before. She alleged that she stayed in the van all night and when Coppinger got in the van he accused her of having relations with other men. She went on to tell Deputy Taylor that her husband began to hit her about the head and back with his hand and also hit her with water bottles that were in the van. She also alleges that he choked her and pulled her hair while driving down the road. The female stated that when they stopped at Par 4 Market to get gas she jumped out of the van and ran into the store. The clerk at the store stated that she called police and the male subject acted like he was going to come in the store but left eastbound on McMinnville Highway. The alleged victim was transported by ambulance to the Medical Center of Manchester for treatment due to the fact that she stated she was having trouble breathing.
A “be on the lookout call” was given to the Warren County Sheriff’s Department for the Dodge Van. A few minutes later Warren County deputies stopped the vehicle. A check of the driver, Phillip Wayne Coppinger, showed an active Order of Protection against him out of Colorado filed on February 11, 2015 by his wife. Warren County Deputies transported Coppinger to the county line and then he was transported by a Coffee County deputy to the jail. Bond was set at $15,000.
