Joey Poindexter assaults man with wooden boat paddle because he was “up on the boat against my wife”

44-year-old Joey Poindexter was on the bank of the Cumberland River when a prolonged incident occurred. This incident consisted of arguing with intermittent physical altercations, including Joey Poindexter, Stephanie Poindexter, Mikhail Petrov, and Irina Petrova, but Mrs. Poindexter and Mrs. Petrova were the center focus during this altercation. When Mr. Petrov tried to remove his mother from the situation, Mr. Poindexter took a wooden boat paddle and attacked Mr. Petrov at least two times. One of the attacks hit him in the head, causing a large laceration. Mr. Poindexter told police officers that Mr. Petrov was “up on the boat against” his wife and that he hit him to defend his wife, which video evidence contradicts. Poindexter was taken into custody and charged with aggravated assault.
