HCSO and ATF Make Arrest in Joint Investigation

Hamilton County, TN - A two month joint investigation into a reported aggravated assault and burglary of a residence that took place in the Hunter Road area on September 15, 2015, culminated in the arrest of Jeremy Terrell Pettway (age 25) for a litany of felony charges stemming from the September incident.
