CARYVILLE, TN (WLAF) – It was barely Tuesday, June 29, at 12:45am, when Anthony Lee Goins of Jacksboro came in contact with a Campbell County Sheriff’s Deputy on the south end of the county on Lake Road.

Sergeant Joshua Jeffers conducted the routine warrant check through the Campbell County Jail, and it came back that Goins was a wanted man. Goins was wanted on an outstanding domestic violence arrest warrant from La Follette. He was also wanted on a capias/bench warrant out of general sessions court.

Goins, 34, of 1460 Towe String Road, Jacksboro, was arrested and transported to the Campbell County Jail. According to jail records, the unemployed Goins was arrested for the 24th time. Goins remains housed in the county jail this morning on a $500 secure bond and is due in court on July 13. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 07/08/2021-6AM)

  1. Just curious
    Why do you always share how many time the person has been arrested?

    1. Thank you for your response, Shauna.

      WLAF does not always share how many times a person has been arrested.

      However, when the age of the person is compared to his number of arrests, and it seems extreme or very high, WLAF generally publishes the number of arrests.

      For example, the story you responded to involves a man who is 34-years old and has been arrested 24 times. That’s 24 arrests over 16 years since he was age 18.

      WLAF reports it and let’s you decide.
