NEWPORT-Lee Roy Arismendez, 24, of Greensboro, N.C., was working on a roof above Dollar General on West Broadway, on Tuesday, April 16, when at 10:15 a.m., he fell through the roof and onto the store's floor, Sgt. Ricky Parton reported.

When officers arrived at the Dollar General Store, at 220 West Broadway, they observed Arismendez lying on the floor with a laceration to the forehead, and a hole in the Dollar General store's roof, the report stated.

Arismendez, who was alert and aware of his surroundings, was transported by First Call EMS to the Newport Medical Center helipad, and then flown to the University of Tennessee Medical Center for trauma treatment, Sgt. Parton stated in his report.
