Assault Arrest

December 16th, 2014

(Etowah County, Alabama) A Hokes Bluff man has been arrested in connection to a hunting incident, according to Sheriff Todd Entrekin.

“Mark Shaw Hunt, 44, of Hokes Bluff, was arrested today and is charged with one count of first degree assault, which is a felony,” investigator Fred Lasseter said.
