Horse at large on Powell Lane

A Brentwood man's stallion was found running at large on Powell Lane on July 21. The horse had cut himself going through a barbwire fence to get at a mare. The stallion also fought with a younger gelding, inflicting numerous bite wounds. Marshall County Sheriff's Deputies Layne Worsham, Jerry Harden, and Shane Chapman, as well as the neighbor whose mare the stallion was pursuing, were "tied up for two hours trying to get this horse into a pasture," Harden reported. The deputies were in telephone contact with the horse's owner, and the man said he was on his way to help, but never arrived. Harden noted four previous complaints about this owner's horses being out, and stated a warrant is on file.

Pepper sprayed

A visit to the Tractor Pull ended badly for a Columbia man. Justin Wayne Jackson, 30, was arrested and charged with public intoxication, resisting arrest, aggravated assault on an officer, and child abuse or neglect. Marshall County Sheriff's Deputy Larry Hardin was dispatched to Chapel Hill Saturday evening to transport "a drunk and disorderly person" to Marshall County Jail. When lawmen approached Jackson to arrest him, he became very combative and assaulted officers, and had to be restrained from breaking the windows of Hardin's patrol car. Jackson also had to be pepper sprayed when he was in the booking area at the jail. Jackson's 8-year-old daughter was with him at the Tractor Pull, and she was picked up by her grandfather. Jackson's bond was set at $20,000; court date: Aug. 14.
