A man who believed he was owed more money for repair work he did was arrested after he allegedly broke into another man’s home and beat him with a large wooden stick, according to a Carroll County Sheriff’s Office news release.
Curtis W. Sharon, 46, 150 Lucky Acres Drive, Sparta, worked on a piece of equipment for Thomas D. Mayberry. Sharon was paid approximately $1,200 for the work, but claimed Mayberry owed him more money, according to the release.
Mayberry was at his home at 1802 Bucks Run Road, Ghent, on the evening of Feb. 9 when Sharon arrived. According to the police report, Mayberry was watching TV but went to the door when he heard a truck enter the driveway. He saw Sharon and locked the door to prevent him from entering the home. Sharon allegedly broke down the door and began striking Mayberry with a large wooden stick, according to the sheriff’s office.
Mayberry was able to wrestle Sharon to the ground and attempt to subdue him after Sharon lost his balance. Mayberry then picked up an axe that was inside his home to defend himself, but he did not use the axe, according to police. Shortly thereafter Sharon’s wife, Rhonda, allegedly ran through the door toward Mayberry. The Sharons then left the home.
Carroll County Sheriff’s Deputy Clay Cable responded to Mayberry’s 911 call that he was assaulted. Mayberry identified the Sharons as the attackers, according to police. Mayberry suffered a fractured elbow in the assault.
The Sharons were arrested on Feb. 13 after a brief interview at their Gallatin County home.
Curtis Sharon was charged with second-degree burglary and second-degree assault, both Class C felonies.
Rhonda Sharon was charged with second-degree burglary, a Class C felony, and fourth-degree assault, a Class A misdemeanor.
They were lodged in the Carroll County Detention Center.
