When Clarksville Police Officer Daniel Smith responded to a family squabble Tuesday evening, he would eventually charge 19-year-old Eddie Mark Hampton with underage drinking, possession of a cigarillo, possession of less than 0.5 oz of marijuana, and domestic assault. The reason for the call? Eddie was reportedly arguing with his brother, Ethan Hampton, and “shoved him.” according to a police report. Ethan then pushed him to the ground and out the door of the residence.
Officers located Eddie just down the street and took him into custody for the assault. During the arrest, they located the tiniest amount of marijuana and a cigarillo. Eddie says his brother tackled him, but he did not remember shoving his brother. He says his family gave him the alcohol he was drinking, and the family says he brought it with him to the house.
Eddie Mark Hampton of 5th Ave East in Springfield, TN, was booked into the Montgomery County Jail on November 1st, charged with domestic assault, simple possession/casual exchange, unlawful drug paraphernalia, evading arrest, possession/purchase of intoxicating liquor by a minor. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $2,500.
