A Lenoir City man was arrested May 26 after holding a woman hostage in her home.

Loudon County Sheriff’s Office Deputies responded to a residence on Highway 11 East to serve an active warrant to Bradley Joseph Christian, 32. The owner of the house called 911 and said Christian would not let her answer the door.

According to a report, Christian barricaded the back door and took the woman to her bedroom and barricaded the bedroom door as well. Christian held a knife and told the woman she could not leave.

Deputies made several attempts to call the woman back, but the line would hang up immediately. Deputies entered the home after it was determined the woman was being held against her will, LCSO Sgt. Det. Jerramie Bowen wrote in a report.

Christian then barricaded himself in a bathroom. When deputies opened the door, Christian struck LCSO Cpl. Chris Jenkins with a 2-foot metal bar. Christian continued to resist arrest but was eventually brought into custody. Law enforcement later learned Christian had an active order of protection for the woman.

Christian was charged with aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, domestic assault-felony, violation of order of protection/restraining order, aggravated kidnapping, resisting arrest and unlawful carrying or possession of a weapon and held on $203,000 bond.

Woman scares couple with gun

A Lenoir City woman was charged Sunday with aggravated assault after brandishing a gun at two people.

Lenoir City Police Officer Jaime Ketner received a complaint from two people who claimed a woman pointed a gun at them. The complainants gave a description of the car, and Ketner found a car matching the description at a fast food restaurant. The driver was identified as Shelby Paige Presley, 46. Officers found a .38 Special revolver in the glove box.

Presley told officers she received a text from the male complainant asking to meet up. They met at a grocery store where Presley got in the man’s car. The two began to argue and the man’s wife, who was hiding in the back seat, started to threaten Presley, according to a report.

Presley got out of the car, went home and got her gun and the man’s personal belongings. Presley went to the complainants’ home where she threw the man’s belongings in the yard. Presley drove away and noticed the couple following her and flashing their high beams at her. They pulled up next to Presley when she held her gun up and pointed it at them, according to a report.

The man told police he wanted to meet Presley to tell her to stop harassing him and his wife. He said Presley became upset in the car and started choking him and slapped his wife three times.

Presley was charged with aggravated assault and released on $10,000 bond.
