Man Crashes Into Church, Charged With DUI


Man Crashes Into Church, Charged With DUI
WVLT/Peg Broadcasting Thursday November 27, 2014

A car crash Wednesday on Hwy 70 North left a huge hole in the Higher Ground Independent Church of God but witnesses say it could have been much worse. Local8now reports that John Brown lost control of his vehicle which ran through the church and was stopped by a chain link fence that separates the church property from Little Brad’s convenience store next door. Witnesses say if the fence had not stopped the vehicle the car could have hit the store’s fuel tanks and caused an explosion. Brown reportedly tried to run away from the scene of the accident but was detained by the store’s owner and several customers who had heard the crash and rushed over to see what had happened. Local8now reports that Brown was charged with second offense DUI and third offense driving on a revoked license. Fortunately, no one was in the church when the car plowed through it. The pastor said a wall collapsed at the church, damaging an organ and a pew. The owner of Little Brad’s said he thanks God that no one was hurt. (Photo Courtesy WVLT)

Reduced Bond Denied For Morgan County Man Charged With Toddler’s Death
WATE/Peg Broadcasting News Wednesday November 26, 2014

A Morgan County man charged in the death of a toddler will remain in jail. On Tuesday, a Roane County judge refused to reduce the $200,000 bond for Roger Prince, who was arrested in September and charged with first degree murder in the death of his girlfriend’s 17 month old son. Baby Levi died on June 1st and his mother, Amanda Beaty and Prince both claim the child choked on a cookie. But an autopsy revealed the toddler had suffered multiple blunt force injuries. Prince’s attorney had asked the court to reduce his bond to $50,000, but that request was denied. Both Prince and Amanda Beaty are charged under "Haley's Law," which raises most child abuse charges to felonies. If convicted, it can carry a life sentence.
