NEWPORT-A man shot a cat belonging to an acquaintance, then shot his high velocity pellet rifle at three adults, including the cat's owner, on Sunday, June 16, at about 10:15 p.m., the Cocke County Sheriff's Department reported.

Todd R. Olden, 27, of 785 Musterfield Road, in Newport, was arrested and charged with three counts of reckless endangerment, according to a report by deputy sheriffs and Lt. Richard Caldwell.

When officers arrived on the scene at 553 Battle Road, following a shooting call, they allegedly talked to Virgil James, the cat's owner; Jessica Shelton, and Stephanie Frazier. They said they had been outside talking about how James's cat had been shot, the report stated.
