A copy of the assault summons served on Crossville city councilman Jesse Kerley was released Monday morning.
The complaint is signed by councilman Pete Souza and says following a meeting at city hall he was confronted by Mr. Kerley. "During that time, Mr. Souza got hit in the shoulder and chest. Mr. Kerley did intentionally and knowingly cause Mr. Souza to reasonably fear imminent bodily injury."
The initial court appearance on the charges is set for August 29 at 8:30 AM.
Kerley leaves the Justice Center after accepting the summons on Friday August 5th.
