ROGERSVILLE (WJHL) – Hawkins County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested a man Thursday, after he was spotted walking naked across Hugh B. Day Bridge around 3:20 a.m.
According to a HCSO report, the deputy said Derrick Dalton Goins, 22, 1177 McKinney Chapel Road in Rogersville, repeatedly said his first name when he tried to speak with him.
Goins then tried to shake the deputy’s hand, but when the deputy refused, he said Goins tried to hit him and kept swinging, eventually hitting the deputy in the side of the head.
Goins was arrested and charged with indecent exposure, assault on an officer, resisting arrest and was taken to the Hawkins County Jail.
His vehicle was later found partially in a ditch and running on Old State Highway 70, according to the release.
