In a Press Release, authorities said they were seeking Grand Jury Indictments against 50-year-old Timothy Barnes Sr., 45-year-old Shirley Barnes and 23-year-old Angela Barnes who all reportedly lived at the home.

A 69-year-old Crossville man was arrested after allegedly trying to run a vehicle off the road in which his 42-year-old girlfriend was a passenger. According to reports, Crossville Police were dispatched to the area of Sparta Highway and Sparta Drive on Sunday, Feb. 19 after receiving several calls of a gold mini van attempting to force a black and yellow Ford truck off the road. Officers stopped the van on West Avenue and say 69-year-old Bobby J. Moore admitted to chasing the truck which contained his 42-year-old girlfriend, who was trying to get away from him. Police say that two other people in the truck were recklessly put in harm’s way when Moore tried to run them off the road. Moore was placed into custody and transported to the Cumberland County Justice Center. The girlfriend was also arrested on an outstanding warrant according to reports.
Remington voluntarily recalled their Remington Model 700 and Model Seven rifles with X-Mark Pro triggers that were made from May 1, 2006, to April 9, 2014.
Remington announced that some Model 700 and Model Seven rifles with XMP triggers could unintentionally discharge.
A Remington investigation revealed that some XMP triggers may have excess bonding agent used during the assembly process when the rifles are made.
How to determine if your rifle is subject to the recall:
1. Find the rifle's serial number whre the barrel meets the receiver. The serial number is located on the user's left for a right-handed rifle. The serial number can be found on the gun carrier's right if it is a left-handed rifle.
2. Give the serial number to Remington's recall support team by calling 1-800-243-9700 (Prompt 3 then Prompt 1). Calls are accepted Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EDT.
3. Undergo a rifle visual inspection. If the face of the trigger is ribbed, the rifle does not have an XMP trigger and is not subject to the recall. If the face of the trigger is smooth, the rifle is subject to the recall.
Remington advised Remington Model 700 and Model Seven rifle owners to stop using the rifle to prevent unintended discharge of the weapon that could potentially cause death or injuries.
