Two more people have been picked up in a joint undercover drug investigation by the Sheriff's Department and the Alexandria Police Department.

Sheriff Patrick Ray says 63 year old Billy Eaton of Sparta Pike, Watertown is charged with sale and delivery of a schedule III controlled substance (hydrocodone) and his bond is set at $40,000.

32 year old Jason Campbell of Smith Road, Smithville is charged with sale and delivery of a schedule III controlled substance (hydrocodone) and his bond is set at $40,000.

Both men will be in General Sessions Court on the charges August 2nd.

Meanwhile, in other crime news, Sheriff Ray says officers responded to a call Sunday at the Johnson's Chapel Recreation area where a man was possibly intoxicated and exposing himself. Deputies arrested 41 year old Anthony Brock of Bunker Hill Road, Sparta. But as they placed him in the back seat of the patrol car, Brock kicked out the back window and tried to crawl out. He also began kicking and trying to fight the officers.

Brock was charged with public intoxication, indecent exposure, vandalism, and resisting arrest. His bond is $10,000 and his court date is August 2nd.

On Monday night, Sheriff Ray says officers responded to the Cookeville Boat Dock area where a man had showed up at another person's house, claiming he had been shot. A further investigation revealed that the man had gotten into a fight with another person and had been struck over the head with a beer bottle.

The injured man, Derrick Choate of Cookeville was airlifted to Erlanger Hospital in Chattanooga.

Sheriff Ray says the two people with Choate were arrested. 19 year old Joseph Price of Carolina Avenue, Cookeville and 20 year old Lindsey Mahan of Anderson Lane, Cookeville were charged with underage consumption of alcohol. Bond for them was set at $1,500 and their court date is July 26th.

Sheriff Ray says more arrests are pending a further investigation in that case.
