Police have charged 44-year-old Michael Anthony McCord with the aggravated rape of his girlfriend at a residence in Ooltewah.

A county deputy answered a 911 call to the home, and McCord answered his knock on the door. He then tried to shut the door.

Deputies said when they got inside that McCord became belligerent. One deputy pulled out a taser. Another deputy took him down with a leg movement, and he was then handcuffed.

Police noticed that several items had been thrown through the room. A jewelry chest with a mirror had been tossed across the room, and it knocked over a TV.

The girlfriend came out of a locked bedroom. Deputies said she was crying and visibly shaken.

She said McCord had been drinking all day and was intoxicated. She said he had become angry and violent. She said he pushed her onto the bed and handcuffed her to the bed frame. He then sexually assaulted her, though she told him not to touch her, it was stated.

She said after uncuffing her, he threw the items around the room.

The woman said she was able to go next door and call 911. She said she returned home, and he said, "Get your dumb--- back in here." She said she went to the bedroom and locked it.

McCord said he had become upset because the woman had possibly been talking with an ex-boyfriend.

Deputies said he continued to curse the woman and call her names.

Roy Exum: Our Official State Rifle

There was a noticeable crowd of free-thinkers who ran around like so many “Chicken Littles” back in February when “the hicks” in the state legislature named a gun that is made only in Tennessee as the Official State Rifle. As we seem to always find out afterwards, the goofs who are quick to make such liberal racket have no earthy concept of reality or purpose. In the tiny town ... (click for more)
