It was under somewhat different circumstances than the Hopkinsville incident, but a Clarksville man was arrested Wednesday on charges that he made up a robbery Sunday night.
Clarksville Police say 21-year old Stephan Vecchione of Calvert Drive called 911 Sunday night and said he had been robbed at gunpoint in the parking lot of Little Caesars. Police say he even took them to the scene of the alleged incident and pointed out where it happened that night, before recanting on his story Wednesday and saying he made it up because he spent money he owed to a friend while at a club.
He said his friend asked him about the money, so he made up a story about being robbed. Vecchione was charged with falsely reporting an incident and booked into the Montgomery County Jail.
Hopkinsville Police investigated shots fired on Durrett Avenue early this morning, with no one injured in the incident.
The report says 18-year old Lesel Killebrew and two other males went to the area of the Durrett Avenue-Poplar Street intersection to collect a debt just after 2 this morning and an argument ensued.
As Killebrew drove away, two males shot at the vehicle at least six times, striking the left rear tire. Killebrew made it to Bentley Street before he noticed the damage and called police.
At least one suspect is listed on the report and the investigation continues.
A Hopkinsville man was arrested on attempted arson charges last night for allegedly attempting to set his girlfriend’s mobile home on fire.
Witnesses told police that 21-year old Lucas Todd Miller set a piece of paper on fire at 7 Middle Street and said he was going to “burn the place down.” One witness chased him out of the trailer, with Miller dousing the paper in a bathroom sink before fleeing the scene.
Officers caught up to Miller a short time later and charged him with third degree attempted arson charges. Police say they found the paper that Miller had set on fire.
It looks like a new principal will be in place at North Drive Middle School sooner, rather than later.
