Clarksville Police say 51-year-old Raymond Wright was driving behind another vehicle Wednesday morning on Kraft Street at 8:30 a.m. and began to honk his horn at the vehicle in front of him. He then passed the car, and the car was concerned about his road rage and followed Wright to the Kroger at Dover Crossing to record his tag information. Both cars arrived at the Kroger and pulled near each other, and a verbal argument started between the Wright and the two individuals in the other car. Wright is then alleged to have exited his vehicle and tapped on the other driver’s window with a knife with the blade open in what she perceived to be a threatening manner. Officers retrieved a knife matching the given description from Wright’s vehicle. He is charged with felony aggravated assault.
In recent years, there’s been a push for individuals to call 911 if they are in a situation with police that makes them uncomfortable – to get more eyeballs present on the situation. Clarksville Police Officer Joshua Billotte charged a man with making a “non-emergency” 911 call when he did just that, despite documenting the man was calling 911 “for help”.
He jailed the man, who received no other charges, and a commissioner gave him a $1,000 bond.
