A Lenoir City man is facing three charges after a late night altercation at his home.

Loudon County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Mark Rodriguez responded Dec. 28 to a home on Pinecrest Circle after a woman said a man, who she described as highly intoxicated, physically assaulted her.

When Rodriguez arrived at the home, he found Ethan Walls in a child’s bedroom and visibly intoxicated. Rodriguez said he tried to detain Walls due to his state of inebriation and the severity of the call, but he started resisting.

As Walls continued to resist arrest while being walked to the squad car, the deputy decided to call for a medical unit to transport Walls to Fort Loudoun Medical Center due to the amount of alcohol he had consumed.

The man reportedly drank an entire bottle of vodka and was outside the home being loud when the woman tried to get him to come inside. After appearing to agree, Walls punched the woman in the back of the head. An argument continued into the home and Walls threw a chair at the woman and also threatened children inside.

Walls, 21, was charged with domestic assault, resisting arrest and violation of sex offender registry and held on $8,000 bond.

Man facing multiple assault chargesA Lenoir City man is facing assault and vandalism charges after an argument with his neighbor.

Lenoir City Police Officer Jamie Ketner responded to the Inn of Lenoir City after a couple called in a possible assault. When he arrived at the scene, Ketner noticed a small laceration on a man’s arm, while his wife had a laceration and large knot on her left forearm.

The couple said they had an argument with their neighbor, Thomas Swetz, from behind their front door. As Swetz kicked against the door, he caused the screen door to cut the man and woman. Swetz then went to his apartment and returned with a knife, which he used to strike at the couple’s front door.

Ketner observed scratch marks on the door consistent with the couple’s story. When asked, Swetz said he confronted the couple and did have a knife but denied striking the door and purposefully harming the woman.

Swetz, 50, was charged with two counts of aggravated assault, two counts of assault and one count of vandalism and released on $6,000 bond.
