May 6, 2009
CHURCH HILL, Tenn. (AP) — Two men who were caught hunting turkey on
Holston Army Ammunition Plant property have received probation, but can't
hunt for a year.
Security officers found 34-year-old Christopher Kevin Arnold of Church
Hill and 45-year-old Brian Cox of Kingsport on the grounds of the plant
April 15 after hearing two gunshots.
The Kingsport Times reported both were charged with criminal trespassing
and hunting without permission. An officer found a dead turkey after the men
left the grounds and were detained by Church Hill police.
Arnold and Cox agreed Tuesday to a plea that will erase the charges if
they successfully complete six months of probation and pay fines and fees.
Their hunting licenses have been suspended for a year.
