Aggravated Assault — Kristopher Chase Stenberg, 18, of 293 Holmes Street, Trezevant, was arrested for two counts of aggravated assault and one count of aggravated burglary following a September 29 incident at a Trezevant residence.
According to the report by Deputy Michael Sevarns, he responded to a call from 4110 Big Buck Road and spoke with residents Barry Walker and Johnna Crouse, who said that Stenberg came on the property, walked into the garage with a knife in his hand, and knocked on the door. When Walker answered the door, Stenberg accused Walker of “talking about him.” Walker told Stenberg to get off the property and closed the door. Walker said that Stenberg said he would be back “with his friends,” but Stenberg was not on the property when officers arrived. Both Walker and Crouse told the deputy that they felt fear for their lives. Stenberg was later apprehended by authorities, and a knife was found inside his vehicle.
License Violation — Robert Davis Bennett, 54, of 18600 West Main Street, Huntingdon, was charged with driving on a suspended license during a September 18 traffic stop in Hollow Rock.
According to the report by Deputy Michael Sevarns, he pulled over a Honda Accord driven by Bennett due to no tag lights and no visible plates. Bennett did not have a driver’s license with him, but a computer check revealed that his license was suspended.
Drug, License Violations — Lawrence Shelby Norman, Jr., 37, of Milan was arrested for drug violations and for driving on a suspended license on September 21 in Cedar Grove.
Deputy Michael Krause reported that he was patrolling on Terry Road when he observed a vehicle turn around and then park in a driveway in a suspicious manner. The driver (Norman) got out of the vehicle and told Krause that he was there to see his girlfriend while he was seemingly on the phone with someone telling that person to come outside. When no lights came on at the residence and no-one came outside, Krause asked Norman for his driver’s license, but Norman said he didn’t have his license with him. A computer check showed that Norman’s license was suspended. After getting Norman’s permission to search the vehicle, Krause found a folded up dollar bill containing a substance the tested positive for methamphetamine, as well as a meth pipe. Residents at that address told Krause that Norman did not have permission to be on the property.

Williams was later found by officers in a creek bed. A computer check showed that Williams had an active warrant out for failure to appear with a $12,000 bond.
