According to the Kingsport Times-News, a Tennessee woman and her sex/crime partner were arrested for aggravated assault last week after the couple allegedly attacked a neighbor who reported their noisy boning to police.
After Hawkins County Sheriff’s Office deputies left the residence in Rogersville for the second time, Richards and Lawson allegedly attacked Galin at his apartment door.
As detailed in a police report, Galin told a deputy that Lawson “hit him with a rake and broke the handle.” She then allegedly stabbed him in the arm with the jagged handle. Richards, Galin added, struck him with a “2x2 stick.”
Deputy Kenneth Ferguson reported finding blood on the end of the rake handle, and observed “several lacerations” on Galin that were consistent with his account of the incident. The stick was also recovered.
According to police, Lawson, who they say was intoxicated, later injured her head falling in the drunk tank.
Since 2001, the couple has reportedly been arrested a collective 76 times on charges of drug trafficking, theft, domestic assault, stalking, failure to appear, public intoxication, burglary, drug possession, casual exchange of drugs, contempt of court and “a variety of driving offenses.”
