ROGERSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – A nude man caught walking across a bridge near Rogersville is accused of attacking a Hawkins County deputy who refused to shake his hand.
The Kingsport Times News reports Hawkins County Sheriff’s Office Cpl. Keith Long says he received a complaint around 3:20 a.m. Thursday morning about a naked man walking in the roadway. Upon his arrival, Long says he saw 22-year-old Derrick Dalton Goins and tried to speak with him, but Goins only said his first name repeatedly.
Long says Goins reached his hand out and tried to shake hands. When Long refused, Goins punched him.
Goins is charged with assault on an officer, resisting arrest and indecent exposure. It is unclear if he has a lawyer.
