Neighbors' Dispute At The Enclave Leads To Assault Charge

Thursday, May 28, 2009

A resident of the upscale Enclave in Hixson is due in General Sessions Court on Thursday after being charged with three counts of assault involving a dispute with a neighbor.

James C. "Clint" Wolford, 39, of 3138 Enclave Bay Dr., is also charged with aggravated burglary in the May 2 incident.

Police said they were called to 3502 Enclave Bay Dr., at 7:30 p.m. to check out a disorder.

John Gwin, the homeowner, told police that Wolford, who is an official of Wolford Development, had come to his house to confront him.

He said he had been driving by the
Wolford residence and Wolford had shouted at him and waved his arms for him to slow down. He said he kept driving and made an obscene gesture toward Wolford.

He said after he got home, Wolford knocked on the door and forced his way in the house, while pushing on his chest and shouting and cursing.
He said he ordered Wolford out of the house.

Brenda Gwin said she heard the disorder and came and got herself between the two men, "thinking that the intruder would not lay hands on a woman." But she said he grabbed her by her upper arms and pushed her out of the way.

John Gwin III, who is 17, then came downstairs and ordered Wolford to "get out."

Police said the younger Gwin lunged at Wolford as he was coming further into the house.

Police said Wolford shoved the elder Gwin into the den, and he and the younger Gwin got in a wrestling match in which John III was thrown to the floor.

Officers said Wolford hit the younger Gwin's head on the floor, causing a knot.

The elder Gwin got 911 on the line and, by that time, the younger Gwin had subdued Wolford, it was stated. He agreed to leave.

Mrs. Gwin said she could smell alcohol on Wolford's breath.

She said it "took both of the men in the family to subdue the suspect."

Wolford was released after posting a $16,000 bond.

He is due to appear before Judge David Bales.

Voting Lines Are Too Long - And Response

I’ve tried three times this week to vote at the Collegedale early voting place. Each time I’ve been there, the line was not only around the building, but it stretched at least another block (or two) into the adjacent parking lot. I realize that it is easy for someone like me to criticize the ones running the election, but I feel criticism is deserved in this case. If they cared ... (click for more)

I tend to believe many who voted ‘no’ would actually support ... (click for more)
