Kenny Chesney’s father has been arrested and charged with aggravated assault for allegedly beating his neighbor with a golf club and punching him several times.
The alleged attack happened yesterday (August 18) outside Dave Chesney’s condominium in Tazewell, TN. The victim, who is the president of the local homeowners’ association, says he confronted Dave multiple times for allowing his dog to roam unleashed on the Woodlake Lodge, Golf & Country Club grounds. Dave allegedly responded with a golf iron. “The victim said (Chesney) swung at him eight or nine times, and hit him six,” Chief Deputy Wayne Lee of the Claiborne County Sheriff’s Office says. “He also hit him several times in the face with his fist.”
Dave is being held at the Claiborne County Jail pending an arraignment this morning (August 19).
