Court Date Set In Several Local Cases
May 2nd is the court date set for a Cookeville man, charged with reckless endangerment. The Putnam County sheriff's department says 19-year-old Derrick Lee Caperton of Dodson's Branch Road was arrested after he allegedly fired an air pistol at a nine-year-old boy. A pellet from the pistol reportedly struck the victim just below the eye. Meanwhile, in a separate case, May 2nd is also the date when 22-year-old Patrick Brown of Villa Drive in Livingston will be in court. He's charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor for allegedly providing alcohol and drugs to some teenagers he was driving around with. And May 2nd will also be the arraignment date for two Tennessee Tech students charged with shoplifting from the Kohl's store. 18-year-old Jerry Stone of Nashville and 18-year-old Christopher Bowen of Memphis were allegedly caught with the stolen merchandise.
