* Dustin L. Holtsclaw, 19, 556 Tiger Creek Road,

stop. He was charged with DUI, violation of implied consent,
and no driver's license on person.
* Justin L. Pruett, 18, 259 Russell Hill Road,
was arrested Sunday by EPD Ptl. Jennifer Mayberry after Sgt.
Roger Crowe observed a female subject sitting in the parking
lot of Union Pharmacy and went to investigate. Rebekka Crowe,
21, 705 Jordan Road, told officers that she observed a male
subject, identified as Pruett, exit a red Toyota as the vehicle
pulled into the parking lot. Crowe said a female, identified
as Sheena B. Perry, 18, 305 Cherry St., exited the vehicle
and was pursued by Pruett, who caught her and hit her, causing
her to fall. Crowe said Perry ran again and that Pruett didn't
stop chasing her until she (Crowe) began blowing her horn
and yelling at him. Crowe said she pulled over to check on
Perry and found her covered in blood. Perry told officers
she and Pruett were driving down the road when Pruett pulled
the emergency brake, causing her to wreck. Perry said she
jumped out of the vehicle and started running, with Pruett
chasing her. When he caught her, he headbutted her, she said.
Perry had a deep puncture wound on the right upper portion
of her inner cheek area. Pruett told officers that Perry had
been driving in a reckless manner and had looked away from
the road and was headed for a telephone pole. He said he thought
they were going to hit the pole head-on, so he pulled the
emergency brake. He said Perry probably struck her face during
the accident. Carter County Rescue Squad EMS personnel advised
the wound probably was caused by a headbutt and not from impact
in an accident. Pruett was charged with assault under domestic
violence and was transported to Carter County Jail.
