A Lenoir City man is facing two counts of aggravated assault and other charges after a hit and run.

Lenoir City Police Officer Bobby Lankford responded to a call March 16 at Highland Avenue and Mulberry Street in Loudon. Lankford spoke with Travis Estes, Priority Emergency Medical Services director, who said that he saw a red Dodge Dakota try to run another vehicle off the road, pass multiple vehicles “on a double yellow line” and disregard traffic signals, according to a report.

The driver of the vehicle was later identified as Ethan Victor Rodgers, 40. Two people were in the vehicle Rodgers attempted to run off the road.

“Rodgers did produce a pistol-type of weapon later identified as a pellet pistol ...,” Lankford wrote in a report.

The driver attempted to flee by striking the Dodge Dakota “in an attempt to get away from the weapon,” Lankford wrote in a report. As Rodgers was leaving the scene of the accident, he came close to hitting Estes. Loudon Police Officer Marty Ward was able to stop Rodgers at Roberts Road.

Rodgers was charged with two counts of aggravated assault, reckless driving and leaving the scene of accident with property damage and held on $18,000 bond.

Family gathering turns violentKyle Randall Jones, 18, and Daniel Allen Rogers, 43, are facing assault charges after a dispute with family members got out of hand Sunday.

Loudon County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Caleb Greene responded to a call at Summer Street about an assault where he spoke with two women.

The women were at a house on Washington Pike when Rogers began yelling at one woman about “her dog’s mess,” Greene wrote in a report. After Rogers head-butted one woman in the jaw, another woman and Jones began to argue.

“The arguing became intense and Jones struck (one woman) in the area of her nose with his fist,” Greene wrote in a report. “(The other woman) attempted to assist her sister ,resulting in Jones striking (her) in several areas of the face. Daniel held (the woman) while Jones continued striking her in the face with his fist.”

After all parties separated, both women fled the house and requested paramedics at Summer Street. EMS did not transport the women but told them to seek medical assistance because of a possible broken nose.

Rogers and Jones said the women “started the altercation by cussing and screaming,” Greene wrote in a report. Both men admitted assaulting the women, and no signs of physical assault on Rogers or Jones were observed.
