Gun incident on Telford School Road leads to man's arrest

Anthony K. Honeycutt

A landlord-tenant dispute involving a gun at a Telford mobile home led to a man's arrest on aggravated assault and burglary charges earlier this week.

Anthony K. Honeycutt, 25, was arrested Monday after the incident at 582 Telford School Road.

In a court record, Washington County Sheriff's Deputy Kenneth Harless reported that the tenant came home to find that the landlord and Honeycutt had changed the deadbolt lock on the trailer's front door and Honeycutt was still inside the residence.

The tenant, whose name was not provided in the record, told Harless he was missing two hats, two lawnmowers and the lock, all of which were in the residence before he left.

Honeycutt told the tenant the landlord had instructed him to place the lawnmowers in a building, then went back in the trailer and brought the tenant his hats and locks, along with the lawnmowers.

Before deputies arrived, the tenant had confronted Honeycutt about the property, and Honeycutt had lifted his shirt and taken a gun out of a holster, according to the court record. Harless reported that Honeycutt admitted to having a BB gun on his side during the altercation.

Honeycutt was charged with two counts of aggravated assault and burglary. He was arraigned Tuesday in Sessions Court, where his jail bond was reduced to $50,000 and a preliminary hearing was set for the following Tuesday.
