Two Arrested on Felony Charges Over the Weekend in Wright
Campbell County Sheriff’s deputies were busy over the weekend in Wright.
Around 12:30 a.m. Sept. 8, a deputy arrested a 29-year-old man on suspicion of driving under the influence after he witnessed a white Chevrolet S10 pickup leave black skid marks and accelerate quickly south on Wright Boulevard.
After stopping the pickup, the deputy observed cuts on the man’s wrists and evidence of blood on his shirt. Deputies also observed a box cutter in the man’s pocket. Although, he could not explain how his wrists were injured.
The man explained to deputies that he had been at the Rusty Nail earlier in the night and was pushed to the ground after being accused of hitting on someone’s wife.
Around 2:00 a.m., a destruction of property was reported at the establishment. Two pickups, a red Ford and a Silver GMC, both had one slashed tire and a broken exterior mirror.
As a result, the man not only faces charges for DUI, but also for felony destruction of property, since the damage to both vehicles is estimated over $1,000.
Also around 1:50 a.m., deputies responded to a report of a verbal argument between a patron and bartender at the same establishment.
The argument spilled out into the parking lot of the Rusty Nail after a 24-year-old male patron yelled profanity at the 25-year-old female bartender. The call reported five people were involved in the melee in the parking lot when the original male brandished a large fixed-blade hunting knife.
Deputies arrived and the male was arrested without further incident. He’s now charged with aggravated assault and breach of peace.
