Shotgun Incident Leads To Assault Charges
An Algood woman has been charged with domestic assault and aggravated assault after an incident in which she allegedly fired a shotgun at her boyfriend. According to police, 33-year-old Laurie Lynn Griffis of Third Avenue South had allegedly gotten into an argument with a man she was dating. The disagreement started at a Cookeville restaurant and apparently continued after the couple returned home. Warrants allege that Griffis grabbed a shotgun that discharged as the victim tried to take it away from her. He then reportedly got into his truck to leave and she re-loaded, firing at the vehicle. No one was injured.
