Sheriff's deputies responding to an apparent accidental shooting at 620 Oregon Trial Tuesday night ended up charging a couple who lives there with sale and delivery of methamphetamine.
Charged with sale and delivery of a Schedule II drug were Billy Jack Dunn, 59, of the Oregon Trail address, and Dana Renee Nelson, 30, of the same address.
Dunn and Nelson were also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.
About 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, deputies responded to a reported shooting at the address.
Chief Deputy Ray Allen Jr. said three men were "playing with a gun" and it went off. One of the men, Donte Thompson, was struck in the ankle area with a bullet, Allen said.
The shooting remained under investigation on Wednesday. Thompson was listed Wednesday in stable condition at Johnson City Medical Center.
Deputies obtained consent to search the house. They found a bag containing 1.9 grams of methamphetamine in a bedroom used by Dunn and Nelson, Deputy Ben Stewart said in reports.
Also found in the house were empty plastic bags, a pouch containing empty bags, a 100-gram weight, a digital scale, cut straws and a pipe with a rubber hose attached, report said.
Bond for Dunn and Nelson was set at $51,000 each pending a first scheduled appearance Wednesday in General Sessions Court.
A woman also in the house when deputies arrived, 25-year-old Kayla Dawn Barnette, of Fish Pond Road, was charged with criminal impersonation for allegedly giving deputies a false name, Deputy Joseph McNulty said in a report.
Investigation showed that Barnette had an active arrest warrant for violation of probation.
Barnette was scheduled to appear Wednesday in court.
