Two former Kingsport bondsmen have been found guilty on aggravated assault charges stemming from an incident that happened two years ago, when a rubber bullet was fired at a car. Matthew D. Hall, 28, was found guilty on four counts of aggravated assault and one count of reckless endangerment. Micah R. Hill was convicted on one count of aggravated assault and two counts of attempted assault and one count of reckless endangerment. Jimmy D. Lunceford, who was involved in the incident but not a bondsman, was convicted on one count of facilitation of attempt to commit aggravated assault, two counts of attempted assault and one count of reckless endangerment.According to Sullivan County Assistant District Attorney, Leslie Foglia, on May 24, 2011, the three men pulled an SUV, owned by Ralph Hawkins/Tri-City Bonding, across Ramsey Road in Kingsport. A Cadillac with four people inside was coming around the corner from Peach Orchard Drive to Ramsey Road.
