Police Blotter

Marshall County Sheriff’s deputies responded on March 29 to a residence on Fayetteville Highway after a report of an attempted break in.

The complainant, Christopher George, told deputies that a woman had entered his residence while a man stood outside the door. The two did not say anything to him, try to take anything, or try to assault him, George said.


Deputies on the prior shift had apparently responded more than once to the address to investigate the same claims, and employees at the Belfast Market said that George had been in, once carrying a baseball bat, claiming that someone was trying to enter his home.

When deputies asked George if he had been drinking or using drugs, he told them, according to the report, that he had been drinking whiskey and snorting and smoking methamphetamine.

Searching the residence, deputies found a glass pipe, a straw, and two homemade smoking devices, all containing white powdery substance.

George was charged with public intoxication and possession of drug paraphernalia. Bond was set at $2,000.

• On March 30, Lewisburg Police officer Dillon Lipinski stopped a car with an expired registration. Speaking with the driver, Riley Humphrey, Lipinski noticed a strong smell of marijuana.

After being questioned, Humphrey allowed, according to the report, that there was some marijuana in the car. The report stated that it was difficult to search the vehicle due to the amount of bags and trash in the car.

Eventually, Lipinski found four and a half tabs of acetaminophen/hydrocodone in a plastic bag and approximately 13 grams of marijuana.

Riley was charged with possession of a Schedule II drug, possession of a Schedule VI drug, and possession of paraphernalia and held on a $5,500 bond.

• On March 28, several LPD officers responded to a 911 hang up call on Cornersville Road.

There they encountered several women, one of whom, Kayla Langley, refused to step outside to talk to officers, pulling away from them and screaming.

According to the report, officers were forced to deploy “a chemical agent” to Langley’s face prior to taking her into custody.

She had apparently been arguing with her mother, when she allegedly struck her mother and took her phone as she dialed 911.

Langley then took a phone from her grandmother and threw it, as she also attempted to call 911.

Langley was charged with two counts of interfering with an emergency call, domestic assault, and resisting arrest.

While being processed at the Marshall County Jail, it was discovered that she had outstanding warrants for domestic assault as well as fraudulent use of a credit card. She was held on $7,000 bond.

• Daniel Perryman was arrested April 2 at an apartment on Jackson Avenue after refusing to leave the property after being asked.

Perryman was on the sidewalk when officers arrived, pacing and using profanity. He apparently wanted to fight another individual and said he wouldn’t leave until the person came out of the apartment.

Asked by an officer to leave, Perryman responded “do what you have to do, I’m not leaving.”

He was charged with criminal trespass and held on $1,000 bond.

• Thomas Jerome Griffin was charged with domestic assault and interference with an emergency call on March 31, after MCSO deputies responded to a call on Holly Grove Road.

His wife stated that they had been arguing over money and that he had unplugged the phone so that she could not call 911. He was held on $2,000 bond.

• Jamario Schields was charged with domestic assault and interference with an emergency call on April 2, after LPD responded to a call on 7th Avenue North.

His girlfriend claimed that he had pulled her into the house by her hair and had also broken her phone while she tried to call 911.

Bond was set at $3,000.

• LPD responded to a domestic dispute call on April 4 on Woods Avenue. The female at the scene said that her boyfriend, James Crosslin, was keeping her from leaving the residence.

Crosslin denied the claim but was found to be under bond conditions forbidding him from contact with the girlfriend stemming from a domestic dispute in January. The girlfriend said that she had gone out for dinner with Crosslin on April 2 and had spent the next day with him as well.

Crosslin was held without bond for the violation until the next available court date.

• Bridgette Endsley was charged with domestic assault on March 29. According to the report, she admitted to punching her husband several times in the face after accusing him of infidelity. Endsley was held on $1,000 bond.

• Joshua Reilly was served with a warrant for violation of probation and failure to appear. Reilly had failed to report to probation and pay associated fees, in addition to receiving a new charge. He failed to appear to a February court date to respond to charges of reckless driving, fourth offense driving on a revoked license, evading arrest, and a false report. Bond was set at $6,000.

• Lydia Shepherd was stopped in Chapel Hill on March 30. Officers knew Shepherd had outstanding warrants in both Marshall and Bedford Counties. She was served with two failure to appear warrants with a total bond of $2,000. She also has a hold placed on her for Bedford County.
