An apparent attempt to inform people they needed to move out of a house reportedly led to an assault last night. Deputy Sheriff Devin Hodges and Lt. Marlon Higgenbotham were first dispatched to Bramlett Church Road, Gray Court at 9:04 last night. A man and woman living at the house alleged the landlord had kicked in a door at the residence. A woman claimed she was in her bedroom when the owner kicked in the door and told her they needed to move out. The owner indicated that the man of the couple he wanted to evict had come at him with a machete. He indicated the man had struck the kitchen table and also the door in question with the machete. Officers reported finding damage to the door and table, but no machete. They were to see a judge regarding any possible charges, advised the landlord of proper eviction procedures, then left, thinking matters had calmed down.
Shortly thereafter, at 10:03, Deputies were sent back to the house on a report the tenant had the machete and was threatening people with it. He had reportedly pulled the machete from under a log, outside near a car. The landlord’s family had arrived and took the machete away from the subject. One person had a cut to his finger from doing that. Deputies decided the man had used the machete to chase his landlord through the house and placed him under arrest.
28-year-old Adam Nicholas Brodsky of 3599 Bramlett Church Road, Gray Court was placed in the Johnson Detention Center. He was being held for charges expected to include Malicious Damage and Aggravated Assault.
