Murfreesboro Man Shot By Deputy In May Now In Jail


Murfreesboro Man Shot By Deputy In May Now In Jail
TBI/Josh DeVine/Peg Broadcasting News Sunday October 12, 2014

A Murfreesboro man shot by a deputy back in May was released from the hospital on Friday and taken straight to jail. The TBI says 39 year old Jeffrey T. Newton pointed a shotgun at two Rutherford County Sheriff’s deputies on May 6th after Newton’s wife called 911 and said her husband had a gun and threatened to take his life in the woods behind their Murfreesboro home. During the search, Newton reportedly emerged from the woods carrying a shot gun, was ordered to put the weapon down, and instead pointed it at the deputies. One of the deputies fired his service weapon, hitting Newton in the abdomen. Friday night, following his release from the hospital, Newton was booked into the Rutherford County Adult Detention Center on two counts of Aggravated Assault. His bond was set at $50,000.

Kids! Cover Up or Face Dress Code Changes!
Peg Broadcasting News Saturday October 11, 2014

What school children call fashionable and what adults call appropriate is always a topic of debate. That matter was addressed at the recent meeting of the Cumberland County School Policy Committee. At issue in particular is leggings; those tight-fitting stretch pants, typically worn by women or girls. School policy dictates that if leggings are worn, the bottom must be covered. School officials have noticed several students who do indeed cover their bottoms with a shirt or sweater but leave the front portion of the leggings exposed. And while the Policy Committee will probably not revise the Dress Code for this school year, students could see some changes next year because a few of their classmates like to push the envelope when it comes to school attire. (on that note, Cumberland County students can wear whatever their parents let them next week...Fall Break is October 13th through October 17th.
