Manchester Man Charged With Kidnapping and More
Davis, 65, of Miller Lane, Manchester was charged with aggravated assault, aggravated burglary and kidnapping.
According to a report by Coffee County Sheriff’s Deputy David Reed, Davis had agreed to rent a bedroom from Charles Droysen and Mary Abel on May 21 but returned on May 23 armed with a pistol and told the couple that he wanted his “stuff” back. When he entered the house he, according to the deputy’s report, asked Droysen where his baseball bat was, which he normally kept in the house. He also allegedly kicked the man. Droysen then left the house.
Davis then is accused of waving the pistol in the direction of Abel and told her he was getting his belongings, which he proceeded to do.
When Reed and Corporal Jim O’Neal arrived Davis was getting back out of his vehicle after placing some of the items in the car.
The officers then talked with all three people to get their version of what happened. After listening to the three of them, the officers looked in the trunk of Davis’ car and found several weapons and ammunition. He told the officers that he had been staying at his mother’s and she didn’t like the weapons in the house so he had placed them in the trunk.
The officers then drove Davis to the Coffee County Jail and charged him. He is being held under a $35,000 bond and is to appear in Coffee County General Sessions Court July 6. (Tullahoma News)
