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.
The theft of a moped on Hopper Court is under investigation by Hopkinsville Police.
Officers were called to 1808 Hopper Court around 6pm Wednesday, where 20-year old Kenneth Morris said his orange and black moped was stolen from his front yard sometime between 9pm Tuesday and 7 the next morning.
Morris told officers he still had the keys to the moped, which is valued at 800 dollars.
A collision at the intersection of East 9th and South Virginia Wednesday afternoon injured a Hopkinsville resident.
Hopkinsville Police say 20-year old Killian White of Ashland City, Tennessee ran a red light on South Virginia around 12:30 and hit the front bumper of a vehicle driven by 54-year old Reginald Brewer of Hopkinsville.
Brewer’s vehicle then veered left and collided with a utility pole. Brewer was taken to Jennie Stuart Medical Center for a possible head injury, while White went uninjured.
Witnesses told police that Brewer had a green light when he entered the intersection.
