LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – A possible domestic situation turned into a public intoxication charge.
On Mon., Dec. 28, Campbell County Sheriff’s Deputy Jason Shears was dispatched to 713 Ivey Hollow Road, LaFollette, about a possible domestic situation. But after some investigation it was discovered there was no indication of violence, but that Christopher Lee Siler was very intoxicated, according to a report from the sheriff’s department. He had been asked to leave the residence, but shortly after leaving he had jumped from the car and began walking.
Around 8 pm, Shears found the 35-year- old Siler walking on Ivey Hollow Road near Tannery Lane and noticed he was very unsteady on his feet, nearly falling several times and walking in the center of the road. Siler had previously stated that he had been drinking Fireball. His speech was very slurred, and he seemed disoriented, based on the report.
Christopher Lee Siler, 35, 713 Ivey Hollow Road, LaFollette is charged with public intoxication. This was Siler’s 10th booking at the Campbell County Jail. He’s due in court in March. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 01/07/2021-6AM)
