Sheriff's Department

The discovery of two marijuana plants growing behind a shed on Howard Youree Road resulted in the arrest of Tommy Rogers.

Investigator Anthony Young had received information that the plants were at the home and that Rogers was growing them.

Rogers told Young that he didn't know anything about the plants, but thought a "woman named Foxie" had planted them behind his shed.

Rogers' wife was also interviewed and she claimed she didn't know anything about the plants, but she thought a "woman named Foxie planted the plants behind their shed. She stated that Foxie had wanted someone to mail her marijuana from Colorado."

Rogers was then cited with simple possession of a Schedule VI drug (marijuana.) He was given a Nov. 5 court date.

Three men face multiple charges following a single-vehicle auto accident on Finnie Simmons Road.

Jonathan Green was charged with DUI, leaving the scene of an accident (hit and run) and with filing a false report. Terry Spray was charged with disorderly conduct and inciting to riot, while Tony Spray was charged with being a party to a crime.

Deputies Michael Hainey and Mike Smith were dispatched to the scene of the accident by the 911 Center. While in route, Smith radioed Hainey and told him to head to the Emergency Room at Stones River Hospital because the injured Green was being transported there by a family member or friend, later identified as Tony Spray. Then Hainey was radioed again by Smith who directed him to Iconium Road.

Arriving at the Iconium Road address, Hainey witnessed several people standing outside. Green was sitting on the front porch.

"I noticed Mr. Green holding a white cloth to his face," Hainey reported. The deputy also saw blood on Green's T-shirt and that his pants were ripped.

"I inquired if he had been involved in the accident at Finnie Simmons Road. Mr. Green stated that he had not, then attempted to hide his face again," Hainey said.

The deputy made Green remove the towel from his face.

"I observed that Mr. Green's right eye was swollen and discolored; he also appeared to have some minor abrasions on his face," Hainey said.

The deputy began to interview Green only to be interrupted by Terry Spray, "who appeared nervous and agitated, instructed Mr. Green to tell the truth."

Shortly afterwards, a pickup truck arrived at the Iconium Road address and two more individuals, identified as Tony Spray and Christopher Thomas, got out at the scene.

Hainey administered field sobriety tests to Green, who was then transported to the ER by the Cannon County Emergency Medical Service.

Deputy Smith arrived at the scene and Hainey began explaining that Mr. Green had failed two of the three sobriety tests and that he was going to charge Tony Spray for assisting Green in leaving the scene.

"When I instructed Mr. Spray to turn around and place his hands behind his back, his father Terry instantly became belligerent and approached me," Hainey said. Both Hainey and Smith told him repeatedly to step away.

"Terry Spray continued to behave in a highly agitated state by shouting and waving his arms; his aggressive behavior seemed focused on inciting the other family members present to attack myself and Deputy Smith," Hainey said.

Ultimately, Hainey had to physically restrain Terry Spray and place him under arrest. At this point, Mr. Thomas apparently attempted to prevent the arrest of Spray. Thomas was taken into custody as well.
