WASHINGTON COUNTY, Tenn. (WJHL) – A Fall Brach man was arrested after he allegedly pointed a handgun at a juvenile before hitting him in the head with the weapon.
According to a release from the Washington County, Tennessee Sheriff’s Office (WCSO), Jimmie Crumley, 48, was charged with aggravated assault (domestic) after an incident Wednesday.
