Wow, they backed down. I will admit I am shocked they did not try to send him to the electric chair.

The Greeneville Police Dept. arrested Eddie, not the Sheriff. It only took Ken a month to figure out how to drop the charges. Way to go Ken. How's Barbie.

"GREENE COUNTY, TN (WJHL)- One month after being charged with disrupting a public meeting and resisting arrest, Greene County Judge Ken Bailey dismissed charges against Cocke County resident Eddie Overholt.

In July, Overholt was escorted out of a contentious Greene County Industrial Development Board meeting after asking board members to speak up.

Eddie Overholt said when he found out the charges against him were dismissed, he was not surprised."I have more or less been expecting the letter to tell you the truth. I'm glad they dropped the charges because it was really just ridiculous.," said Overholt."

Yep. If you break the law and do wrong it is someone else's fault. I mean people should pay for me and my family if I want to cause a scene. I may just drive 90 mph into someone's tree and blame the owner. I wished "justice be served" and not allow posts that make absolutely no sense.

Assault & Battery(while in possession of a fire arm),False Arrest,Kidnapping,False Imprisonment,Intimidation and Breach of Trust. These are the egregious acts committed by one or more persons, captured on video for all to see. Stick that, and my boots still need lickin'.

keep in mind:
Bailey dismissed the charges at DA B Bell's request, not on his own initiative
Charges were dismissed 8/15, and the news of the dismissal appeared in today's Sun , 8/22.
What took the Sun so long? Bailey? Silent Bell (the bell that doesn't ring?)? Why not a celebration at the Morgan Inn of the Ind Dev Board and Partnership: Ferguson, Niswonger, Harbison, Daniels, Whitfield etc etc with Overholt as the guest of honor and front page photos of justice in action. Chief Cannon? Officer Hixson in a blood free uniform? An apology from the Sun to Mr Overholt? That'll be the day. Who got to B Bell, or did he figure it out by himself, a nice gesture before he leaves office next week? Cheerfully chattering minds want to know.
