A Carroll County man is accused of trying to drown his girlfriend’s adult son in McKenzie.
The victim, Joshua Hollowell, told Weakley County Sheriff’s deputies that his mother’s boyfriend, 45-year-old Scottie Dale Campbell, of Atwood, beat him up and tried to drown him in a pond behind the residence.
Hollowell was treated at the scene by EMS.
Deputies then searched the woods for Campbell and his girlfriend and found the pair stuck in a field in a truck. Both were intoxicated.
Campbell is charged with Aggravated Assault and has been released from the Weakley County Jail.
Meanwhile, Hollowell had a Gibson County warrant and was taken to the Gibson County Jail.
