A Bradyville man keeps finding his way back to the Cannon County Jail.
The latest episode involving Randall Clark Smotherman took place on Jan. 20, when Cannon County Sheriff's Deputy Emmaly Beasley charged him with aggravated domestic assault. Smotherman allegedly threatened to kill a relative while hold a pocket knife toward their throat.
Smotherman was further charged with retaliation for past action, in that he allegedly threatened to inflict bodily harm on Beasley and other officers while being transported to the jail.
A charge of public intoxication was levied against Smotherman following the incident as well.
This marks the fourth incident since early December which ended with Smotherman being charged. From those previous arrests he is facing a litany of charges including public intoxication, disorderly conduct, phone harassment, DUI and driving while license revoked.
Smotherman's next court appearance is set for March 6.
