A Lenoir City man is facing a reckless endangerment charge after law enforcement responded Friday to a possible armed person.

Loudon County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Caleb Green and Sgt. Chris Hutchens met a man standing outside his residence on Ford Road who said he heard “a series of what he believed to be gunshots” coming from another residence on the same road. The man saw a woman come from the residence and asked her what happened but she did not acknowledge him.

Green talked with George Othar Harrill, who said he had been in an argument with a woman.

“Mr. Harrill stated he grabbed his handgun, walked outside, stood on the porch and discharged eight rounds into the air,” Green wrote in a report. “I did observe four shell casings on the porch. Mr. Harill gave Sgt. Hutchens permission to recover the firearm, which was located under his pillow in his bedroom. The firearm was taken as evidence.”

Harrill said he forgot to take his prescribed medication. Green requested a mental evaluation, but Harrill refused to be transported to Fort Loudoun Medical Center.

Harrill, 64, Lenoir City, was charged with reckless endangerment and released on $2,000 bond.

Man flees after pills, money foundObserving a bronze Ford Explorer on Feb. 4 traveling 63 mph in a 45 mph zone, LCSO Deputy Skylar Mills stopped the vehicle on Hines Valley Road.

After the driver, Larry Steven Hamm, gave permission for a search of the vehicle, Mills saw a “large amount of money” and a black pill bottle with a large quantity of Oxycodone in the center console.

Hamm then fled into the woods, and K9 assistance was requested.

The money totaled $4,854, along with 118.5 Oxycodone and 10 Alprazolam. Two different brands of Oxycodone were found along with a ledger detailing drug sales, Mills wrote in a report.

Hamm, 63, Lenoir City, was charged with manufacture, sell, delivery of resale of a Schedule II substance, evading arrest and manufacture, sell, delivery or resale of a Schedule IV substance and released on $11,000 bond.
