No one was injured in a small fire at Metalsa in Industrial Park late yesterday morning.
The Hopkinsville Fire Department was called to the factory formerly known as Dana at 301 Bill Bryan Boulevard around 11:30, when a smoke collector used to filter the air caught fire according to the report.
Four trucks and 12 fire-fighters quickly got the blaze under control, with minimal damage done. A spark in the filtering system likely started the fire, according to the report.
One of this week’s Crime Stoppers Fugitives of the Week has already been arrested, thanks to an anonymous tipster.
Taken into custody at 203 Moores Drive around 3:45pm Wednesday was 28-year old Anthony Chambers of Hopkinsville. Chambers had been wanted for failure to appear in court and failure to pay child support charges.
Crime Stoppers Coordinator Paul Ray says the tipster will receive a cash reward.
A Hopkinsville Middle School student was only at school for about two hours on the year’s first day before he was cited into juvenile court for allegedly kicking a fellow student and attempting to punch the principal.
The citation from Hopkinsville Police School Resource Officer Frankie Pollard says the 15-year old white male threw a rubiks cube at a female student and hit her in the leg, before running to another girl and kicking her in the leg as hard as he could.
Officer Pollard writes the boy then began yelling racial slurs, calling teachers the “N word” and saying he wouldn’t listen to anyone. As police walked him by the principal, he allegedly tried to strike her with both fists, though Officer Pollard was able to restrain him before he made contact.
Officer Pollard writes he fears someone at the school will be severely injured if the boy is allowed to continue to attend and says he heard of the student’s reputation last school year.
What’s described as a “friendly wrestling match” led to a stabbing in Clarksville last night, with a suspect charged with attempted murder.
A news release from Clarksville Police says officers responded to the Kangaroo Express on Pembroke Road in the Queen City around 8:30. The stabbing happened just down the road, where witnesses say 49-year old Jonathan Troy Hargadine and 20-year old Jason Bennett had engaged in a friendly wrestling match.
The “loser” of the match was deemed to be Hargadine, who then allegedly went to his office and retrieved a knife before coming back and stabbing Bennett in the right side of his chest.
Bennett and his girlfriend drove to the Kangaroo Express, where they called 911 and waited for help. He was flown to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where he was treated and released for his wound.
Hargadine was found sleeping on the couch at his home and was arrested and charged with criminal attempt to commit homicide. He was lodged in the Montgomery County Jail on 250-thousand dollars bond.
