A Red Boiling Springs man faces assault, vandalism and domestic violence charges after running a female off the road and continuing to ram her vehicle with his.


According to the affidavit of complaint filed by Trooper Cody Ballard of the Tennessee Highway Patrol, 36-year-old John Mark Hix drove to a residence on Eulia Lane and tried to speak with a female subject on Monday, August 27. 

The female tried to leave in her vehicle, but was stopped by Hix in her driveway.

When she was able to leave, she says Hix began to chase her in his vehicle, running over her mailbox in the process.

The affidavits also state that Mr. Hix ran the female off the roadway and into a fence, and then continued to ram into her vehicle while she was inside.

The female’s cell phone was broken along with the driver side window of her 2017 Toyota Tacoma. 

Hix was charged with vandalism, aggravated assault and domestic violence. 

As of press time he remains at the Macon County Jail with a $52,500 bond. A General Sessions Court date is set in this case for October 3, 2018.
