Police believe road rage could have been the root of an assault that left one man beaten and confused Tuesday, November 26.
Witnesses told police that “two vehicles appeared to have been involved in a road rage incident starting from about Highway 111 and 10th Street headed south,” according to a report taken by Officer Jason Hees around 6 p.m. that day.
The two witnesses reportedly told Officer Hees that when they got to the “park and ride” just before the 1-40 ramp, they saw a red or maroon colored Ford F-150 truck leaving the area and a male subject lying on the ground, so they called police.
When Officer Hees arrived on the scene, he made contact with a male subject who appeared to have been involved in an altercation, he reported.
“He had blood all over his face, hands and shirt,” the report states. “There was a pool of blood on the asphalt behind his vehicle.”
Though the man initially denied medical treatment, an ambulance was called to the scene because he claimed he did not know where he was and reportedly told the officer that it was the month of June. The man was also unable to remember his address or phone number, according to the report. He was taken to Cookeville Regional Medical Center for treatment.
