NEWPORT-Three men were arrested Sunday, Aug. 25, after
they allegedly beat up another man who reportedly was just trying to break up a
fight in a parking lot, the Cocke County Sheriff's Office reported.
Brandon Keith Carder said that about 1:45 p.m. on Sunday,
he noticed two males fighting in the parking lot of Newport Health and
Rehabilitation Center, Deputy Sheriff Jerry Vandergriff stated in a report.
Carder said a woman asked for someone to break up the
fight, so Carder went to the two men and grabbed hold of one of them. Carder
told officers, after he separated the two men, one of them hit him in the face
with a closed fist, the report stated. Carder said he was unsure which
individual threw the punch.
