Shooting Suspect Waives Hearing

Michael Nuckols' Case

Will Be Sent To Grand Jury



A man charged with firing multiple gunshots at a house nearly two years ago waived his Greene County General Sessions Court preliminary hearing on Wednesday.

Michael Jay Nuckols, 44, is charged with criminal attempt to commit first-degree murder. His case will be presented to a Greene County grand jury in upcoming months, Assistant District Attorney General Cecil Mills Jr. said.

Nuckols will appear for arraignment on March 31 in Greene County Criminal Court. He is currently free on $110,000 bond.

Investigators said he allegedly fired multiple gunshots at a house and an adjacent building at 645 Chandler Circle, just off Viking Mountain Road.

Nuckols left the area after the incident and was apparently in Florida before returning to Tennessee, Mills said. He was taken into custody last year and previously appeared in court.

"Multiple" gunshots were fired into the house and an adjacent business, the Hemlock Hollow Inn and Paint Creek Cafe, the night of Feb. 26, 2012, sheriff's deputies said in a report filed after the incident.

The owners of the property were inside the house behind the restaurant at the time of the shooting incident.

Afterward, at least one of the residents sought medical treatment, investigators said at the time.

The incident was characterized in the report as an aggravated assault. Nuckols lived near the Hemlock Hollow Inn at the time of the shooting incident.

"They were neighbors," sheriff's Detective Sgt. Mike Fincher said after the shooting incident.

Nuckols' vehicle was pulled over in Madison County, N.C., after the incident. He was charged with driving without insurance.

An all-points bulletin for Nuckols was issued by Greene County authorities after the gunfire incident was reported, but he had apparently left the area.
