BULLS GAP — The Hawkins County Sheriff’s Office is searching for a Greeneville man accused of injuring his girlfriend’s shoulder during a Jan. 27 argument at her residence near Bulls Gap.

Aaron Isley, 21, 326 Royal St., is accused of body slamming the woman on her porch, causing her shoulder to be broken or dislocated. 

HCSO Deputy Will Mullins responded to Hawkins County Memorial Hospital, where he met the victim in the emergency room.

The woman told Mullins she was at her home that afternoon when she observed Isley going through her stepfather’s property and asked him to stop.

“(The victim) stated Isley came at her and she put her hand out and stopped him,” Mullins stated in his report. “(The victim) further stated Aaron Isley picked her up and body slammed her onto the porch, and she also hit her head. (The victim) was not able to move her left arm and I did observe abrasions on her left shoulder. (She) told me when Isley picked her up, she couldn’t use her arms to break her fall.”

As of Friday, Isley was still wanted on a HCSO warrant for aggravated domestic assault, a Class C felony punishable by 3-6. The HCSO stated the warrant was sent to Greene County because that’s where Isley resides.

Phony 911 calls lead to arrest

Jessica Daniel Bandy, 34, Rogersville, was charged with filing a false report on Jan. 24 after she allegedly called 911 twice, then intentionally avoided the officer who responded.

The first call came in shortly before 8 a.m. from Lauderback Road in the Persia community just south of Rogersville, during which time the dispatcher reported hearing a woman state that she needed help and a male voice in the background.

HCSO Deputy Bryan Sanders responded to that area and knocked on doors but didn’t find the caller. The second 911 call came in at 9:30 a.m. from the same woman and the dispatcher was able to get an address on Grigsby School Road.

Again, Sanders knocked on doors and didn’t find the caller, but he returned at 11 a.m. and located Bandy, who allegedly stated she’d been in a verbal argument with her boyfriend and thought the 911 calls would defuse the situation.

Bandy allegedly admitted that she never intended to speak to police after making the 911 calls and twice didn’t answer her door when Sanders knocked hoping he would “go away.” She was arraigned Monday in Sessions Court and will be back in court March 30.
