KINGSPORT — Two separate altercations between Kingsport neighbors have led to three arrests on charges of aggravated assault.

One suspect was allegedly caught cutting the valve stem on a tire of his neighbor's car, then swung a pair of pliers when confronted. The other two suspects were reportedly asked to "stop selling pills" — and responded by chasing people down the street with a fire poker and knife.
