Shovel Used in Aggravated Assault; Disabled Person Injured

Alfred ScottA 58-year old Pickton man, Alfred Ray Scott, faces charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and injury to a disabled person after an arrest Tuesday night. The man was said to be uncooperative during a magistrate’s hearing Wednesday morning when he continually interupted Justice of the Peace B. J. Teer. Teer had Scott returned to his cell and ScottĀ is expected to see a justice of the peace again Thursday morning.

Hopkins County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call of a disturbance in progress at a residence on County Road 2417 Tuesday night at 8:15 p.m. Deputies were told a man with a shovel was attempting to strike another man. A woman, said to be disabled due to mental illness, attempted to break up the fight and she was reportedly hit with the shovel. Another woman was able to separate the two men by the time deputies arrived.
