Man In June Baseball Bat Attack
Sentenced To Jail

A man who attacked a couple on a motorcycle with a baseball bat last June 3 was sentenced Thursday by Criminal Court Judge John F. Dugger Jr. to serve nearly two years in jail on convictions on two counts of misdemeanor assault.

Chad Whitson, 39, of 526 Cherokee St., Mosheim, had been charged after the incident with felony counts of aggravated assault, but the charges were reduced to misdemeanor assault, court officials said.

Whitson, who appeared in Greene County Criminal Court, was sentenced by Dugger to 11 months and 29 days in jail on each count, at a 30 percent release eligibility date.

A 30 percent release eligibility means Whitson may be eligible for release from jail after serving 30 percent of his sentence.

His co-defendant, 37-year-old Elizabeth A. Rednour, of the Mosheim address, was convicted in November of a misdemeanor count of assault and sentenced to 11 months and 29 days by Dugger, with all but 30 days of the sentence suspended.

Rednour had also initially been charged with aggravated assault.

The victims told sheriff's deputies that Rednour "tried to run (the) victims off the road in the area of Lynn's Restaurant on the Erwin Highway," a report by Deputy Rick Williams said.

The driver told deputies he continued on the motorcycle with his girlfriend to Fox Road.

They said that when Rednour caught up to them in a driveway in the 200 block of Fox Road, she and Whitson got out of the car "and began hitting them with baseball bats," the report said.

Both victims, who were wearing helmets, were struck on the head.

The male victim was also struck in the right arm, causing bruising and welts, and the woman motorcycle passenger was hit in the back and left arm, causing bruising, the report added.

While deputies were at the Fox Road location, they were contacted by Tennessee Highway Patrol troopers, who had the car driven by Rednour pulled over on Rheatown Road in Chuckey.

Deputies and the victims went to the location, where they identified Rednour and Whitson as the pair who assaulted them.

Rednour and Whitson at first "denied having anything to do with the incident," the report said.

The victims said in written statements that Whitson attacked the man who had been riding on the motorcycle, while Rednour attacked his passenger.
