McKenzie Police Reports


Warrant Arrest — Officer Trenton Ruddy and a Carroll County Sheriff’s Deputy went to a Walnut Circle address on Monday evening, January 10, and arrested Darrian A. Allen, 42, of McKenzie, on an outstanding warrant for Violation of Sentence.

Domestic Assault — Two McKenzie women were arrested for Domestic Assault after one of them called the police on the other, Tuesday night, January 11. According to a report filed by Sgt. Cody Coleman, Amber Walker contacted the police about an assault occurring at a Main Street residence. Coleman and several other officers arrived to look into the matter and found the two women outside yelling at each other. Walker had advised on her phone call that Marlena Flores had assaulted her.

Coleman found visible evidence of assault on both of the women and placed them under arrest. A search located a young child sleeping in the house. Both women were transported to Carroll County Jail while arrangements were made for the child’s grandmother to take custody of him.

Violation of Probation — On Thursday afternoon, January 13, Investigator Justin Brister was dispatched to Hwy 22 for a reckless driver. A driver had called the Carroll County Sheriff’s Department about a black pickup truck nearly running her off the road. Brister found the truck traveling on the overpass on Hwy 22 and initiated a stop near a local factory.

The driver, Kevin Livingston, 47, of Greenfield, advised he was not aware that he almost ran another vehicle off the road. A license check revealed that Livingston had several Violation of Probation warrants from Cheatham County and South Carolina. Cheatham County advised they would come extradite Livingston on the charges.
