JACKSBORO, TN (SPECIAL TO WLAF) – An investigation by Special Agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office has resulted in the indictment of a La Follette man on a charge of aggravated assault.

In July, TBI Agents joined the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office in investigating an incident involving 51-year old Paul Junior Boshears.  During the course of the investigation, authorities determined that Boshears assaulted his girlfriend at a residence on Ivey Hollow Road in La Follette, causing her to sustain serious bodily injury.
