A resident in the eastern portion of White County has reportedly shot several individuals after the driver of a vehicle in which they were riding was “doing doughnuts” in his yard and causing damage.
According to White County Sheriff Oddie Shoupe, he received a call at approximately 5 a.m., Sunday, Aug. 30, 2015, that informed him Chad Jolley, who lives at 176 Robert Sherrell Rd., had shot into a vehicle that had been driven onto his property and was causing damage.
Shoupe said Jolley had already filed a report with the sheriff department prior to the incident stating he had been having trouble with individuals coming onto his property, although he reportedly has “no trespassing” signs posted.
According to Shoupe, the car came onto the property in the pre-dawn hours of Sunday morning and proceeded to drive around in the yard and, at one point, appeared to be leaving the scene but then returned.
Shoupe said Jolley then reportedly retrieved his shotgun and fired at the vehicle.
Shoupe said one of the individuals was transported by White County Emergency Medical Services to St. Thomas Highlands Hospital, in Sparta; the second individual was transported to Vanderbilt Hospital, in Nashville; the third individual was treated at St. Thomas Highlands Hospital and released; and the fourth individual was arrested.
Shoupe said the district attorney general has been contacted, and the incident is under investigation. Detective Chris Isom is in charge of the investigation.
Assisting the sheriff and Isom at the scene were Detective John Ford, Chief Deputy Tommy Simmons, Sgt. Scott O’Dell, Deputy Brandon Bond, Detective Shannon Jenkins, Detective Steve Page and Deputy Joseph Buehler, as well as BonDeCroft and Eastland volunteer fire departments.
