July 22 the LCSO and Chillicothe Department of Emergency Services responded to a location in Mooresville on a report of a man being assaulted and injured.
Investigation shows one person was joking to a neighbor about throwing a spittoon into a pool when the male neighbor responded with what was believed to be a gardening tool and struck a parked vehicle with the tool. The victim exited the house and the suspect subsequently struck the victim in the head and allegedly used the gardening tool as a weapon. The deputy obtained information from the victim and that person was transported by EMS.
LCSO staff collected information/evidence and responded to the suspect’s location and upon further investigation arrested Trevor Scott Denton, 28, Mooresville. Mr. Denton was transferred to the Daviess Dekalb County Regional Jail.
Mr. Denton was officially charged in Livingston County Associate Circuit Court with alleged Assault 1st Degree or Attempt-Serious Physical Injury or Special Victim violation of 565.050 RSMO. Bond was set at $25,000 cash on case #18LV-CR00322.
