Two Niota, Tenn. police officers and a controversial traffic stop are at the heart of a criminal trial that began in Niota Tuesday. Those two officers, Jonathan Scott and Donald McCarter were suspended indefinitely - charged with oppression, after allegations they beat a man, Ray Stewart, during a traffic stop.Tuesday the prosecutor and defense attorney delivered their opening statements to the jury. He picked him up and slammed him to the ground, says prosecutor Joe Baugh.Baugh believes the two Niota officers went too far when they beat Ray Stewart in June of 2011.You cannot use your office as an officer to mistreat someone. You can't do that. It's against the law, Baugh told the jury.Defense attorney Chuck Burks claimed that Stewart eluded officers and resisted arrest. Attorneys believe dash cam video (see above) will be a key part of the trial. Ray Stewart claims he was intentionally stopped and targeted because he complained repeatedly to City of Niota officials that officers were making traffic stops and operating DUI checkpoints outside city limits. The first witnesses are expected to be called Wednesday morning. Stewart has also filed state and federal lawsuits against these two officers and others. by Jerry Askin

A new development in the case of two Niota Police Officers accused of using excessive force two years ago. Friday morning, on day 4 of the trial, a McMinn County judge dismissed the case. Tables were turned in this McMinn County court room as court officers, jurors, and even a court a clerk took the stand. Seven people testified that Ray Stewart, the victim in this case, was photographing jurors and their license plates as they arrived. Ray Stewart claims he was intentionally targeted because he repeatedly complained that Niota officers were operating traffic stops and DUI checkpoints outside city limits. Now, witnesses say he was the one intimidating jurors. Once details of the incident came to light, State Appointed prosecutor Joesph Baugh said enough is enough. He explained to the judge that Stewart's misconduct was egregious.One of them said that if it was true, she would be in fear. This jury obviously cannot go on to try this case, says prosecutor Baugh. You can't try a case when jurors are afraid of one of the witnesses. I dismissed the case. Judge Amy Reddy agreed and dismissed this case with prejudice- that means there's no chance of a re-trial. We caught up with Stewart outside the Courthouse. While he admits to taking the pictures, he tells me that he's still unclear on what happened. A juror

After a two year controversy, the Niota officers accused of beating a man during a traffic stop have been terminated. Officer Jonathan Scott and Sergeant Donald McCarter were charged with oppression after allegedly beating Ray Stewart in June of 2011. Stewart was on his way to city hall when the officers stopped him. His head was split open, needing eight stitches. The trial began last Tuesday at the McMinn County Courthouse. Four days into the trial, the case was dismissed because of some strange actions by Stewart. Several court employees claimed he was taking pictures of juror's license plates. Yet, during tonight's meeting, City Council voted to dismiss the officers from the force. Mayor Lois Preece made the announcement and says the decision surrounds how much it would cost them to keep the officers. The officers were dismissed with prejudice, meaning they cannot be retried.

Drugging underage girls, and taking sexual photos of them -- those are the charges facing a Niota business owner. 44 year-old Niota businessman, Terry Lynn Hayes, is facing a 7 page federal indictment. McMinn Sheriff Joe Guy served a warrant on Hayes' home two months ago. But after that search warrant, new evidence came to light that caused some concerns. It all stemmed from an alleged victim of a rape being dropped off in another county actually led to a multi-agency search in our county. Possibilities with maybe some trafficking possibly the creation of pornography, says Sheriff Guy. In court documents, federal agent Scott Barker says Hayes had multiple photographs of 14-19 year-old girls posing in sexual positions. Barker told the court that the 14 year-old was given Xanax and cocaine before having sex with Hayes. We've had a lot of other informants come out of the woodwork and some other alleged victims come out of the woodwork. While the evidence against Hayes continues to build, his parents say police have the wrong man. We don't think he done it. We just feel that they've done him unjust, says Sue and Melvin Hayes. The girls told police that Hayes arranged parties to exchange drugs and sex. Now, detectives are demanding answers.

Law enforcement agencies are blaming each other after a man was shot dead by his wife. Athens police say an officer did his job when he told a local jailer that Robert Marshall needed a mental evaluation after he threatened to kill himself and his wife. But officers say the McMinn County Sheriff's Office ignored the request. Now the police department and the sheriff's office are blaming each other for not getting Marshall help hours before he left jail and was shot dead by his wife, Melissa, in self defense. Now his family believes that if law enforcement had followed through and gotten him help, Marshall might still be alive. McMinn County Sheriff Joe Guy says his officers are trained to identify suspects showing signs of mental illness and he says Marshall never showed a hint of problems while in the county jail.

A wanted man on parole for murder drew a pistol on McMinn County deputies as they tried to arrest him at the Athens Walmart on Saturday. Sheriff Joe Guy says the officers' actions likely saved lives in the crowded store. Sheriff Guy says it all started at 1 p.m. Off-duty Narcotics Detective Jared Price recognized a wanted suspect, 44-year-old Ricky Lee Womac, of Charleston, while shopping in the Athens Walmart. Price kept an eye on Womace until until Deputies Paul Redrup and Dylan Presswood arrived. 'At that point, Mr Womac was at a cash register,' said Sheriff Guy. 'Deputy Redrup approached him from behind and told him he was under arrest. Womac pretended to place some money in his left coat pocket, and that was when he drew a 22 caliber magnum handgun and cocked it. Both deputies grabbed Womac, and Deputy Redrup was able to place his hand in the revolvers action. Womac attempted to fire the weapon, but the hammer came down on Redrups hand.' Sheriff Guy says Price, Presswood, and Redrup wrestled Womac across the aisle and into the nail salon where he was subdued. 'These officers were faced with a deadly force encounter from an armed and dangerous suspect who tried to shoot them. They had every right to shoot Mr Womac, and would have been justified in doing so,' says Sheriff Guy. 'But they relied on their overall training, and by not utilizing their own firearms these officers put themselves in danger for the sake of the safety of the other people in a crowded Walmart. Im very proud of the job they did. This could have been a very bad situation.' Records show that Womac has a violent past. He served over 2 decades in prison for the murder of Leck Nunley in 1989 at the old McMinn Co Jail and had been released on parole within the past year. He had recently fled from McMinn deputies on a traffic stop and had been charged by both McMinn Co and Calhoun Police with Evading Arrest, Theft, Drug Possession, and Possession of a Firearm, all within the past month. The warrants served on him Saturday were for failing to appear in court on those charges. Due to the incident at Walmart, Womac is also charged with 3 Counts Attempted Murder, Resisting Arrest, Reckless Endangerment, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm. Deputy Redrup was wearing a body camera the department began testing just the day before. Still photographs the sheriff released from the body camera video show Womac drawing and cocking the firearm with the checkout clerk and another customer with a child only a few feet away (see above image, at left). Sheriff Guy says there were over 50 people in the immediate area of the checkout lanes when Womac drew the gun." 'It could have been a terrible ending,' said Guy. 'But the deputies reacted quickly to a dangerous man, especially Redrup, and their actions kept anyone else from being in danger or injured. Officers nationwide make these same split second decisions all over the country everyday. These guys reacted so quickly, its possible few people even realized the danger they were in.' Womac remains in custody on $500,000 bond. He will face arraignment this week, and Sheriff Guy says his office may also pursue Federal firearms charges.

Questionable decisions have piled up for one of Tennessee's smallest towns and at the bottom of that pile may be taxpayers. That town is Niota, where there has been one problem after another. The latest is a controversial decision to give back pay for two police officers suspended following allegations of brutality. We're talking about 72-thousand dollars of back pay split between the two former Niota police officers. That's a lot of money for Niota's taxpayers. We have a small town, a small budget. You have to watch your pennies. As far as I'm certain, the seventy thousand dollars paid out in back pay, our police department budget last time I seen it was only 82-thousand. So our budget for the year is gone, Niota city Commissioner Richard Rutledge tells NewsChannel9. Rutledge says Jonathan Scott and Keith McCarter are getting back pay because of the threat of a lawsuit. I heard other members say they were not going to pay but when they got in there, and it looked like it wasn't going to go in the favor of the policeman, Jonathan Scott's daddy which is Jonathan Scott threatened he was going to sue the individual board members, says Rutledge.

On Thursday jurors heard directly from the man bringing charges of official oppression against two Niota police officers in McMinn County, Tenn. Jonathan Scott and Donald McCarter were suspended indefinitely and charged. You know what the sad part is, said Ray Stewart from the stand. It's that they honestly believe what they did was okay. What they did was proper. Stewart took the stand sharing his version of what happened during a 2011 traffic stop. Jonathan Scott bent over me while I was bleeding and he smacked me, said Stewart. Stewart claims he was intentionally stopped and targeted because he repeatedly complained that Niota officers were operating traffic stops and DUI checkpoints outside city limits. Prosecutor Joe Baugh believes the two Niota officers went too far when they beat Stewart. When defense attorneys cross-examined Stewart, they highlighted a $35 million civil suit Stewart has filed against 29 other defendants. Attorney Andrew Frieberg said the lawsuit proves that Stewart doesn't just have a problem with these two policeman, but all officers. As the trial drew on, emotions began to run high and accusations were thrown from both sides of the trial. At one point, Circuit Court Judge Amy Reddy dismissed the jury to speak privately with counselors. She warned that with innappropiate outbursts on both sides, a mistrial may be on the horizon.

It's the tale of a bitter divorce between a member of the Cleveland Police Department and his wife, that alleges infidelity involving the police chief. In the allegations in court documents, it was a meeting in another county, that brought all three together. According to a McMinn County sheriff's affidavit, when Cleveland police crime scene technician Jeff Griggs confronted his wife Cindy in a vehicle with another man Saturday afternoon in Calhoun, Tennessee, the other man was his boss, Cleveland police chief Dennis Maddux. Cindy Griggs told investigators she was reporting previous bruises from her husband, but in the affidavit, Jeff Griggs says, he saw them kissing, and he started taking pictures of them. Griggs says he bit her fingers to stop her from getting the camera's memory card, and that got him a charge of domestic abuse, a fact that angers his attorney Jim Logan. "I think that obviously Chief Maddux and Mrs. Griggs know the facts," says Logan. "We obviously don't know them all." Meanwhile, Dennis Maddox has only been police chief one day.. he was to become the permanent chief yesterday, but after the incident in Calhoun, he was demoted to captain. "As of 2 PM today, Janice Casteel our city manager will be the head of the Cleveland Police Department," said Evie West, police department spokesperson. We're told that Griggs is still employed by the police department, but both he and Maddox were unavailable for comment on this story. "If this were not tragic," Logan says,"it would be laughable." Griggs is now out of jail on a one-thousand dollar bond, and Logan says, he will seek dismissal of that charge. In the meantime, Jeff Griggs has a temporary restraining order against his wife and he's been placed on non-disciplinary paid administrative leave, pending the outcome of the proceedings in McMinn County. We're told that Casteel will be the acting Cleveland Police Chief, until a new chief is appointed. We'll continue following this story. By Calvin Sneed
