Greeneville police investigating a reported assault early Sunday charged two men with possession of the legend drug known as "bath salts."
Police were called to the parking lot of Walgreens on East Andrew Johnson Highway to investigate the reported assault, Officer Roy Milton said in a report.
A man interviewed at the scene told police he had been held at knifepoint "and had his life threatened" by one of two suspects in an apartment in the 100 block of Mason Street.
Police went to the apartment, where they found Ronnie Hart Sr. and Stevie Jay Caraway, "who were intoxicated," the report said.
Both were allegedly carrying cut straws and pipes.
"I also found two Baggies of a powder they stated was bath salts," the report said.
One of the bags was found on Caraway, and the other was found in the trunk of a car "used by both men," the report said.
Hart, 46, of 755 Bear Hollow Road, and Caraway, 60, of the same address, were each charged with possession of a Schedule I drug, possession of drug paraphernalia and public intoxication.
Bond for both men was set at $11,300. Hart and Caraway both had first scheduled General Sessions Court appearances on Monday.
