Washington County, Tenn. school board member appears in court


A Washington County, Tennessee school board member who was arrested for the second time in less than a month appeared in court Monday. 

David Hammond was arrested last week for violating an order of protection. 

Today, he waived a preliminary hearing for an assault charge he was arrested for back in March. He is accused of assaulting his former girlfriend…an accusation he denies. 

A grand jury will now review the assault case. 

Hammond is scheduled to appear in court again on July 31.
