Wednesday, September 8, 2010 4:10 pm
Cannon County Sheriff's Deputy Eric Moss was dispatched to 3228 Iconium Road on Sept. 1 in regard to an assault that had already occurred.
Upon arrival he spoke with Michael Prater, who stated that he was at a friend’s house, Brent Mathis, getting something out of his tool box. Prater stated that he was getting ready to leave when Rob Self came up behind him and hit him in the back of the head.
Prater stated that he fell to the ground and Mathis pulled Self off of him. Prater stated that he got in his vehicle and was attempting to leave when Self started hitting his vehicle with a metal bar. Self hit and broke the front windshield, knocked out the passenger side window and then threw the metal bar through the rear driver’s side window.
Deputy Moss observed that Prater had a swollen place behind his left ear where he said that Self had hit him.
Deputy Moss then spoke with Prater’s wife, Angela Prater, and she stated that when her husband got home he told her what had happened and he asked her to call Brent Mathis and have him bring his cell phone to their home because he had dropped it during the assault.
Ms. Prater stated that while she was on the phone with Brent Mathis, Rob Self got on the phone and told her that she was lucky that he did not kill Michael. Ms. Prater stated that she went to Mr. Mathis’ home to retrieve her husband’s phone and while she was there, Self told her that he did assault Mr. Prater and that he would kill him if he ever saw him again.
Ms. Prater stated that Self said that Michael had no place calling or texting his girlfriend. Ms. Prater stated that she told Self that all she wanted was her husband’s phone and Angela Mathis gave her the phone and she left the property.
While Deputy Moss was taking statement from Mr. and Mrs. Prater, Deputy Neal took pictures of the damage to Prater’s vehicle and of the injury that he sustained. Deputy Moss escorted Michael and Angela Prater to the Cannon County Sheriff’s Department where they spoke with the Judicial Commissioner and warrants were taken out on Robert Lynn Self, Jr. for simple assault and vandalism.
