Felony arrests reported by the Johnson City Police Department

Road rage. Johnson City police said a Greeneville resident tried to ram a vehicle during a road rage incident on Saturday afternoon. Edwin Gomez, 28, 2973 Buckingham Road, refused to stop for police lights and siren and continued to engage in the road rage behavior. The incident stopped after Gomez rammed the other vehicle, which was occupied by five people. He was charged with five counts of aggravated domestic assault and felony evading arrest. He was held in the Washington County Detention Center on $50,000 bond with a Sessions Court appearance set for Monday.

Vehicle vandalism. A Kingsport man was accused Friday of vandalizing a vehicle parked at Millennium Park’s condominium complex earlier in January. Tanner Duncan, 20, 6120 Violet St., was charged with vandalism over $1,000. Police said the arrested resulted from vehicle vandalism at 2008 Millennium Place (Rose Park Condominiums) that occurred Jan. 5. Duncan was held in the Washington County Detention Center on $10,000 bond with a Sessions Court appearance set for Monday.

Church burglary. A Kingsport man was arrested Saturday after he broke into a Johnson City church building he had been asked to leave earlier, police said. Lance Lukens, 55, 351 Minga Road, was charged with burglary. About 8:30 a.m., police were called to 127 Garden Drive, where a woman told them Lukens was asked to leave the church earlier because of his disruptive behavior. He later returned looking for his phone, she said, and Lukens punched her after she asked him to leave. She told police Lukens fell down the steps to the church due to his extreme intoxication. Lukens’ face was bleeding, so police took him to Johnson City Medical Center. After treatment, he was jailed in the Washington County Detention Center on $10,000 bond with a Sessions Court appearance set for Monday.
