KINGSPORT — An allegedly intoxicated Kingsport man was arrested New Year's Eve after accidentally shooting a friend with a shotgun.

At approximately 7:30 Monday night police responded to the incident at 1709 Myron St. A report at the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office says a deputy found the resident, Eric Flanary, 27, outside in the driveway and holding a compress to the throat of an 18-year-old acquaintance.

The shooting victim, who was bleeding from the neck and arm, was transported to Holston Valley Medical Center by EMS. On Wednesday afternoon Wellmont Spokesperson Jim Wozniak said the man was treated and released.
