Let me attempt to clear up a little of the confusion from yesterdays story on David Hayes.
First, the officers (Knox County Sheriffs Office and Public Building Authority) did the job they are hired to do.
Who alerted Knox County Sheriffs Office that David was in the building and had a warrant? I am beginning to know that answer, but before I can report I need to confirm with a couple more people.
I know that Knox County Sheriffs and Public Building Authority do not sit there running names or even looking up notable folks for active warrants.
As for the arrest report that the warrant likely came from, what agency issued that? Again, still working on enough sources for that. I can not access records on a Saturday.
Obviously, Hayes was released on his own recognizance, so clearly as they booked him, the warrant in my opinion ain’t much.
As for Hayes spitting on anyone, that is not acceptable, in my opinion. Again, court officers were doing the job they were suppose to do.
