What started as a report of an assault turned into an arrest for making moonshine. 45-year old Brian S. Smith of Bloomingdale Road in Kingsport was yelling at his neighbors and deputies say he tried to start a fight. Before officers arrived, the neighbors say Smith got a garden implement and threatened them and tried to get his dog to attack. Smith ran from officers, leading them to an outbuilding where he kept his still.
