A man is facing an aggravated assault charge after law enforcement responded to a stabbing Saturday at a residence in Lenoir City.

Lenoir City Police Officer Jonathan Yates was dispatched to the scene.

Michael Aaron Simon, 40, was drinking and playing cards with a man when the two began to argue and went outside, Yates wrote in a report. The man followed Simon unarmed and instigated the fight.

Both men walked to Simon’s house a few doors down from their friend’s house. Simon then pulled a knife on the man.

“The victim was stabbed once on the lower left abdomen,” Yates wrote in a report. “He sustained a large gash approximately 8 inches long and very deep. He had to be transported to (University of Tennessee) hospital for surgery.”

Nobody witnessed the stabbing, and both of the men were heavily intoxicated. Simon was found with the knife in his pocket, and admitted the knife was used in the assault after being mirandized.

Simon, Lenoir City, was charged with aggravated assault and released on $5,000 bond.

Three arrested after welfare check

Three people are facing charges after law enforcement initially responded to a welfare check Saturday in Lenoir City.

Lenoir City Police Officer Charles Watson arrived on scene for a welfare check on Kora Shae Bowman-Williams, 18, at her residence when dispatch informed him that Jeremiah Oliver Burchfield, 22, living at the same address, had an active felony warrant out of Loudon County.

Watson asked Bowman-Williams if Burchfield was inside the residence. She said he had not been there for two days.

“I explained to Ms. Bowman that if she was lying about Mr. Burchfield’s location that she would be charged,” Watson wrote in a report. “Ms. Bowman continued to tell me that Mr. Burchfield was not in the residence.”

Watson then spoke with Burchfield’s mother, who let Watson inside the home and led him to a basement downstairs. The basement had several rooms, so Watson requested more officers to help search.

“Once another officer arrived on scene, a search of the downstairs was conducted and I located Mr. Jeremiah Burchfield inside a closet with a blanket covering him,” Watson wrote in a report.

Officers also located Jada Ann Allison, 19, inside the residence. Once outside, warrants were confirmed for Allison and Burchfield.

After confirming the warrants, Watson arrested Bowman-Williams for accessory after the fact. After transporting all parties to the jail, contraband was located on Allison during a search entering the jail.

“I took the contraband and asked Ms. Allison (what) the contraband was and she stated it was marijuana and Xanax,” Watson wrote in a report. “Ms. Allison also admitted to trying to smuggle the drugs into the jai.”

Bowman-Williams, Lenoir City, was charged with accessory after the fact and released on $5,000 bond.

Burchfield, Lenoir City, was charged with violation of probation and held without bond.

Allison, Lenoir City, was charged with two counts of simple possess/casual exchange, possession of contraband in a penal institution and failure to appear and held on $41,000 bond.
