Where are the parents? They are the ones that should be held accountable.
Seriously? Why take the chance? He should have been left to die on the street like officer Chapin.
I think Jesse Matthews should be taken to the Moccasin Bend shooting range and let the offices have their target pratice. Dont waste tax payer's time and money for him in the hospital or the court system.
I wish they would try to rob my place. I will gladly leave the door unlocked for them. Once in they wont be able to walk back out.
Very nice! Looks like you interviewed one of the crackheads himself. Chris Wooten has been arrested twice in the past month for theft. One of the incidents happend at the nearby Cracker Barrell. He was caught breaking into a car for his next fix. Good example of why the place needs to be shut down. East Ridge Tactical Patrol officers arrested Chris N. Wooten, 28, of East Ridge on Monday night after officers observed him breaking into a car in the parking lot of the Cracker Barrel restaurant at 1460 N. Mack Smith Road.
A tactical patrol officer who was conducting undercover operations in the area observed Wooten break a window out of the victim’s car and remove several items. The suspect then began to flee towards and into the Superior Creek Lodge.
Police chased the suspect through several buildings and hallways and into room 361 where Wooten has been living. The suspect was apprehended while attempting to hide under a bed.
A number of the victim’s stolen items were recovered in the room and returned to the owner. Police recovered evidence that Wooten may also be involved in other burglaries in the area, and the investigation is continuing.
Wooten was transported to the Hamilton County Jail and charged with burglary of an auto, theft over $500, evading arrest and vandalism. Wooten is scheduled to be in East Ridge Municipal Court next Tuesday at 5 p.m.
