NEWPORT--Six people were arrested following a melee with two officers in the middle of Highway 160 and Buffalo Road on Friday morning, Jan. 24, the Cocke County Sheriff’s Department reported.

Unspecified comments posted on Facebook allegedly precipitated the fight.

Deputy Sheriffs Hollis Emmons and Danny Hartsell responded to a call of a fight in progress, arriving on the scene in 45 seconds, said Hollis.

The officers found Brandon Louis Hall, 23, of Hartford, in a fight with William Reese, 42, of Newport, according to the deputies’ report.

Officers placed Hall and Reese in custody. Mary Reese, 40, of Newport, allegedly started yelling at Corey Williams, 23, of Bybee.

Officers allegedly told Mary Reese several times to calm down and stay at her vehicle.

The deputies were investigating the situation when a white Lincoln Navigator driven by Brittany Reese, 22, Newport, with two passengers‚ Logan Woods, and Jonathan Reese, 19, of Newport‚ showed up, according to their report.
