The Joker:

2/5/19 Just before 2 P.M. dispatch gets a call about an assault on Greenwood Rd. When Lt. Tom Busic (Your Southern Gentleman) arrives he finds 20 year old Jacob Partin has “been struck in the head with a plastic flower pot resulting in what appeared to be a serious injury.” Mr. Partin had a “very large gash to his forehead that appeared to go down to the skull”.

Lt. Busic charged 27 year old Michael Partin “along with his fiance Joshua Rodriguez” (aged 24) with 2nd degree Assault. The couple was taken down to Ferguson Arms in Pineville with no bonds listed. Both were released the next day.

Lt. Busic was assisted in the arrest by Officer H. Johnson (Harvey) and the recently returned from his vacation with the Bell County Sheriff’s Department, Rockin Robin Venable.

I guess the moral of the story is: When it’s 2 against 1, be sure to get to the flower pot first.

Go Team Middlesboro !!!
