ROGERSVILLE - Turning a toothbrush into a weapon resulted in additional criminal charges against a Church Hill man already housed in the Hawkins County Jail.
    Christopher Shane Seiber, 36, 978 Valley View Road, Church Hill, was jailed on a burglary and a failure to appear charge.  Now he faces a charge of introduction of a weapon into a penal institution.
    Corrections Officer Tyler A. Law reported that on January 1, 2013, he was conducting a search of the C pod at the facility.
    "I was in C-205, at inmate Seiber's bunk.  Inside his mat I found an item rolled in a piece of toilet paper.  Upon unrolling it I found a toothbrush that had a melted end with a piece of metal in it," Law wrote.
    The officer said that he asked Seiber if the item was his and the inmate"nodded yes."
