MOORESBURG — Two people were arrested last week following a disturbance at a Mooresburg address that involved an assault, criminal trespass, and two residents being threatened by having a shotgun pointed at them.
Hawkins Co. Deputy Michael Allen said in a report that he was dispatched about 9 p.m. on July 13, 2019, to the address on U.S. 11W.
There, he spoke to a woman who said that a man whom she identified as Mike Campbell, who stays in a camper next door, had “cussed some of her friends and a two-year old boy that was standing in his yard”.
The woman said she told him to “not talk to a child like that”, at which point Campbell allegedly “smacked her so hard in the face that it knocked her hat off of her head”, Allen’s report states.
She then screamed for her husband, Steve Kent, to come and help her. Kent came up from the lake and attempted to confront Campbell, Allen’s report continues. Campbell said he was afraid for his own safety and “backed into his camper”.
“Mr. Campbell then said that (the woman’s husband) beat on his back window knocking items off the wall, then pushed his microwave off the counter through a front window,” Allen continued. “He (Kent) then opened the front door and stepped into his camper. Mr. Campbell then said that he picked up his shotgun and pointed it in the direction of Mr. Kent and told him to get out of his camper.”
The woman said that when her husband was walking away from the doorway that Campbell “pointed the shotgun at her and threatened to blow her away”.
In the end, Michael James Campbell, 62, was charged with assault and reckless endangerment with a firearm.
Steve Jeffery Kent, 50, was charged with aggravated criminal trespassing.
