Selmer Alderman John Preston Smith was allegedly assaulted on Jan. 31 by Eric Holcombe, truancy officer for the McNairy County School District.

According to the incident report provided by the McNairy County Sheriff’s Department, Smith told Deputy Amy Ballard, that it was not his week to have his kids but since it was his birthday he wanted to spend a few hours with them.

Along with friend Brian Dickey, who is McNairy County Registrar of Deeds, Smith went to the Guys home of his estranged wife, Rebecca, to pick up the kids.

Supposedly Mr. Smith had Rebecca's permission to pick up the kids even though it wasn't his weekend. Allegedly, Eric Holcombe met him out by Mr. Smith's vehicle, they had words, and Mr. Holcombe kicked Mr. Smith in the head. Mr. Holcombe has alleged that he, in fact, is the victim and not Mr. Smith, per the statement he gave law enforcement. Hopefully that sums it up. You could always read the newspaper.

just because you are elected officials that dont give you permission to play outside of the rules. Before a parent divorces they need to think,am i willing to give up special events with their kids. one man trash is another mans treasure. Sounds as mr.Holcombe is keeping his family best intrest in mind. A mans home is his castle.

Regardless of who is in the wrong, they both hold professional positions and should act like it. There are other ways of dealing with things like this... The legal way!

I think when a man is at his home he is 99.999 in the right.

Mr. Smith should have taken his ass whoopin like a man.
Go home and cry about, not run to the police. Why would BD be with
him to go pick up his kids anyway unless he needed a witness? Sounds
like he knew he was gonna start something.

Mrs Mayor,runs our town meetings, if she don`t like what is being said she will bang the gavel!Lol The judge should be banging the gavel on the whole sorry bunch in office at Bethel.They are ruining peoples lives and don`t care. The older citizens on fixed income are in sad shape, they have to decide each month do I pay a water bill or buy food.Or do without my medication!

Any pubic official, officer of the law, school board member or law abiding citizen should act this way! If our children act this way in school what happens??? We as McNairy County law abiding officials need to check themselves!

One solution, move out!!! If you citizens would ban together and move out that would starve that town out, then where would the money come from? Slavery can also be defined as having your private earnings confiscated from you.

Thats the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard! I guess no one ever rides in the car with you because you don't have any friends, or you simply can't imagine going to an ex-wife's house without backup, but there are actually real people in the world who have friends that go places together just because they're friends.

How can you MOVE OUT when you own your home here. The value of property is half of what it used to be here.You can`t give a home away in this town. If I could sell for enough to move I`d be gone soooo fast it would make your head spin. It`s a shame you work all your life to pay for your home, then have city officials ruin what you have worked for your whole life!

Ahahahaha....I have plenty of friends. Probably more than these goofs. I am saying take it like a man. Getting the police invovled is the biggest most sissy thing to do. What kind of back up did he provide? Guy still got his ass kicked. If I was going to get my kids I wouldn't want my buddies riding along. I guess that is a personal preference. Pipe down now.
