CHURCH HILL — It may have only been a BB gun, but firing at a car load of sight seers last week landed a Hawkins County woman in jail.
    Brandi Lea Amey, 28, 737 Big Elm Road, Church Hill, faces five counts of aggravated assault.
    According to reports filed by Hawkins County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Michael Lipe, shortly before 11 p.m. Thursday Jessica Winstead, of Johnson City, and four juvenile friends, paid a visit to Sensabaugh Tunnel, on Big Elm Road near Amey’s residence.
    “Jessica stated that a female with blond hair (later identified as Amey) came out from the residence next to the tunnel and told them they needed to leave,” Lipe wrote. “As the male was getting back into the vehicle they observed some type of firearm in the female’s hand.”
    Winstead told the deputy she then saw the female “cocking the firearm.”
    “As they drove off she (Amey) pointed the weapon and fired it at them, striking the rear of the vehicle,” the deputy reported.
    Lipe stated in his report that he observed the left tail light of the vehicle to be broken.
    “There was an ongoing problem with people stopping at the tunnel and causing a disturbance,” Amey told Lipe.
    “She stated she told them they needed to leave the area and that they were trespassing,” Lipe wrote in another report.  “Brandi stated that she had a Red Rider BB gun and as the vehicle was leaving she pointed the gun and fired it at the vehicle, but she was unaware that she hit it,” Lipe added.
    Amey was arrested early Friday morning and released on $10,000 bond Friday evening.  Her preliminary hearing is scheduled for July 29.
