On 9/7/13, officers of the Johnson City Police Department arrested Najier Hugley (515 Pardee St., 23 years old) and Lance Hugley (515 Pardee St., 24 years old) charging him them with Especially Aggravated Burglary, Aggravated Assault and Attempted Aggravated Rape.

On 8/22/13, Police and EMS responded to 600 St. Louis St. where a victim was located with severe lacerations to his head. He was transported by EMS to the Johnson City Medical Center where he was hospitalized and continues to receive medical treatment.

The victim is listed in guarded condition. A second victim was located a short time later and advised that she was sexually assaulted by the same subjects. She was taken to the Johnson City Medical Center for treatment for her injuries and was released a short time later. This victim was able to give a detailed account of the events.

Police located Lance Hugley on a traffic stop and Najier Hugley turned himself into the Washington County Detention Center. They were placed under arrest and are in the Washington County Detention Center, where they both are being held in lieu of a $150,000 bond. Arraignment is scheduled in Washington County General Sessions Court.

Further: Four Men Charged with Attempted Rape

The Johnson City Press revealed more details of the attacks:

The four men are each charged with aggravated burglary, aggravated assault, and attempted aggravated rape. The fourth man charged in an attempted rape and home invasion assault was arraigned Monday in Washington County Sessions Court and one of his co-defendants immediately raised the judge's ire by laughing at the allegations.

Najier "Tim" Hugley, 21, 515 Pardee St., faces charges of aggravated assault, especially aggravated burglary and attempted aggravated rape in the Aug. 22 incident at a 600 St. Louis St. apartment. The assault left one victim hospitalized with severe head injuries.

As Hugley was being arraigned, Judge Don Arnold read the affidavit in open court to inform Hugley what he's accused of doing. During the reading, Lance Hugley, 22, 515 Pardee St. - who is also charged with aggravated assault, especially aggravated burglary and attempted aggravated rape - laughed.

"Are you laughing?" Arnold asked. "You better not laugh about these allegations."

Lance Hugley had also laughed at his own arraignment Thursday as another judge was reading the affidavit, but didn't get noticed by the court that time.

Two other men - Janmichael Vincent "Gotti" Lingo, 21, 1400 Orleans Terrace, Apt. 420, and Adrian Dashon "D" Bizzell, 405 Bettie St. - were arrested a short time after the incident. Lingo is charged with aggravated assault, aggravated burglary and attempted aggravated rape. Bizzell is charged with three counts of aggravated assault, aggravated burglary and attempted aggravated rape.


According to court documents filed by JCPD Investigator Matt Bolton, police responded to an aggravated assault call at 600 St. Louis St. around 12:30 a.m. Aug. 22. Officers found Randy Tucker, who had been beaten with a beer bottle, suffering from lacerations to his head.

Police said a female also reported being sexually and physically assaulted. The woman said she was able to get up and make her way to Tucker's apartment, but the men followed her. Bizzell, she said, hit her with a beer bottle twice and forced his way into the apartment uninvited.

The woman told police that Bizzell hit her a third time with the beer bottle, and when Tucker attempted to intervene, Bizzell hit him with the bottle. Bizzell left the apartment, according to police, but returned a short time later with the other three men.

Tucker and the woman "heard someone attempt to kick the back door and at the same time someone jerked open the screen door that was locked," the warrant said. The document went on to detail how Bizzell allegedly held the female victim down while Lingo, Tim Hugley and Lance Hugley surrounded Tucker.

The woman "heard two thuds and all four fled from the apartment. When she was able to get up, she found Tucker covered in blood," Bolton wrote in the warrant. Bizzell is being held on $250,000 bond and Lingo, Lance Hugley and Tim Hugley are being held on $150,000 bond each.

What is Fake News?

Allcott and Gentzkow define "fake news" to be "news articles that are intentionally and verifiably false, and could mislead readers." They attempt to exclude disreputable media practices and bias from the definition. 62 percent of US adults get news on social media, while 65% distrust the mainstream media and that concerns me. Print media influence in the 2016 election was down to 8%.

I define "fake news" as articles designed to create false, biased, narratives with partial facts filtered through a Progressive filter, censor pertinent facts by omission, block discussion through editorial censorship, that is ideologically slanted, and designed not to give facts, but stoke emotion and sway public opinion. This skirts the fringes of propaganda and yellow journalism.

Trust in Mainstream media: Democrats 52%, Republicans ~18%, overall ~35%. 65% of the public doesn't trust the mainstream media. 62 percent of US adults get news on social media.
