Just after 9 a.m. Sunday, officers responded to Dover Road regarding a report of a Buick swerving all over the roadway. Officer Hyatt located the vehicle, driven by 27-year-old Brendan Clark Offutt, which was now on Providence Blvd swerving from side to side. During the subsequent traffic stop, Offutt had extremely slurred speech, so much that most of his words could not be understood. He performed poorly on field sobriety tests. Inside the car, officers located a rolled-up paper made into a straw with white powder residue inside it and a “human booger” attached to one end.
22-year-old Fort Campbell Soldier Jeremiah Ray was jailed this week after Clarksville Police Officer Rosa Hyatt let herself into his apartment after a neighbor called to complain they could hear a couple fighting inside. Officer Hyatt says no one was answering the door for her, so after she heard a female yelling and a loud noise she let herself inside the home after realizing the door was unlocked. As she opened the door and announced herself, Lela Perry approached the door as she continued yelling at her husband, Jeremiah Ray. She insisted the argument was only verbal, however, Officer Hyatt says she observed a “hand imprint” on Perry, and Perry insisted it was her own. Jeremiah Ray says the argument began over social media and led to wrestling, and admitted he made a “slap mark” on his wife. With that admission, he was taken into custody and charged with domestic violence.
