A second teen reportedly involved in a Dec. 12 spate of car thefts and car break ins was arrested last week.

Emory Dentavious Demonta Simmons, 17, of Athens, was charged with four counts of entering automobile or other motor vehicle with intent to commit theft or felony and four counts of felony theft by taking.

In another arrest, David Joseph Hill, 38, of Colbert, was charged with aggravated assault, aggravated battery, battery, first-degree criminal damage to property and third degree cruelty to children. Deputy Austin Shubert was dispatched to a domestic dispute in progress on Crabapple Hollow Road. A third party caller told dispatch that a couple was fighting but they didn’t know if it had turned physical. Hill then called 911 stating he was going to harm himself and almost immediately received notification of a car crash in the vicinity.

Shubert found a Chevy Cobalt that had run off the left side of the road, striking a tree head on down an embankment. The car was unoccupied. Shubert then heard yelling coming from Hill’s residence nearby. Hill was found and detained by other officers at the home.

Hill was eventually taken into custody after a confrontation with his father-in-law while holding a butcher knife.
