What started as a call for potential domestic violence led to a long list of charges May 25 for a Lenoir City man.

Loudon County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Luke Hawkins was dispatched to a house on White Wing Road. Nobody answered when Hawkins knocked on the door.

Michael Allen Baker, 44, Lenoir City, attempted to leave the residence through the basement door but Hawkins and LCSO Deputy Austin Parton stopped him, Hawkins wrote in a report.

Hawkins and LCSO Deputy Mark Rodriguez met a woman after entering the home. The woman said she and Baker were arguing because she hid his firearms and “a few of his items” because he was acting irate.

During the argument, Baker hit the woman on the right side of her head and “threatened to do worse to her.” The woman felt in fear for her life because Baker said, “I’ll blow your brains out,” Hawkins wrote in a report.

The woman was held in the home against her will and started to contact friends for help. When Baker realized authorities were at the door, he “took two bags of methamphetamine and shoved them into her hands, telling her to pocket them,” Hawkins wrote in a report. The woman ran into the bathroom to hide.

While searching inside, deputies found three bags containing a total of 3.6 grams of meth, five bags containing a total of 27.5 grams of marijuana, three Xanax, two scales, multiple empty bags and a 9mm Bryco Arms handgun.

Baker denied the woman’s statements as well as ownership of the gun and drugs.

Baker was charged with aggravated assault, false imprisonment, manufacture, sale, delivery, resale of a Schedule VI substance, manufacture, delivery, sale or possession of Schedule II substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, simple possession/casual exchange and unlawful carrying or possession of a weapon and held without bond.

Man assaulted in drivewayA Loudon man was arrested Friday after confessing to an assault.

LCSO Deputy Eric Curtis was dispatched to a residence in Philadelphia and found a man with “multiple abrasions on his right ear and mouth and was bleeding from his mouth and nose,” Curtis wrote in a report.

The man told Curtis a blue Jeep Cherokee pulled into his driveway while he was sitting in his truck. Joseph Fred-Allan Snyder, 30, “jumped out of the car and ran up to his driver side window and began punching him in the head and face,” Curtis wrote in a report.

The man put his truck in reverse in an attempt to flee and drove into his neighbor’s fence. Snyder then left in his Jeep. The man’s neighbor corroborated the story.

The man’s girlfriend told Curtis she previously had an “altercation” with a relative of Snyder, Curtis wrote in a report.

Curtis found Snyder’s address through a check with dispatch. When he confronted Snyder at his residence, he confessed to the assault.

Snyder was charged with assault and released on $1,000 bond.
