JACKSBORO, TN (WLAF) – On Nov. 13, Campbell County Sheriff’s Deputy Nathaniel Bostic went to a home on Dogwood Lane in Jacksboro. When he arrived, he found Justin Alex Buderer seated on the front porch.

He asked the man if he had been drinking and he allegedly said he had been, according to a report from the sheriff’s department. The man also alleged that the victim pulled his pistol once he was shoved to the ground. At this point Buderer began to tell the victim “just shoot me, kill me”.

Bostic went inside the home and spoke with the victim and a witness. The victim said the argument began when Buderer called the witness and was wanting money. The witness said she told him that she was not going to give him any money. The witness continued that Buderer had showed up a short time later at the home.
