Well, if he was hit first he does have a right to defend himself just like you and I do. He is human just like the rest of us. And anyone who dont think he had the right to defend himself needs there jaw busted and made to stand there and take it. I bet all the ones saying something about this sh!t wouldnt stand there and be ok with getting hit. You will react just as he did and hit back! And I know nothing just seen it on tv.

He threw the first punch. He sucker punched the other guy after the guy was headed back into the door, then his ass was body slammed and punched twice in the face. He did however get in another sucker punch after the man was pulled off him and being held. I work at HH so I saw it all idiot.

Tv didn't say anything about defending himself just said he was arrested for disorderly conduct. However my understanding from someone who was there . He started the whole incident. They fact that he was there after being at the bar an had been drinking really says a lot about his character. He is setting a fine example. Way to go dumbass, I mean Jimmy. Classy move.
just sayin

DUNLAP, TN (WRCB)-- Bledsoe County Sheriff James "Jimmy" Morris was arrested early Sunday morning in Sequatchie County after an altercation at a Dunlap restaurant.

Morris was taken into custody by Dunlap Police just after 3:45 a.m. on a charge of disorderly conduct after an incident at the Huddle House on Rankin Avenue.

Sheriff Morris did not return our calls to give his explanation of what happened, but Huddle House employees say they were shocked at what they saw.

"It all happened outside, nothing happened inside," said restaurant manager Chris Cross.

Cross said his employees called him in a panic around 3 o'clock this morning, claiming the Bledsoe County Sheriff was in a fight in the parking lot along with several other unidentified men and women.

"I mean he's an authority figure. He could actually have called dispatch down here and said hey there's a guy causing an issue," said Cross.

But that's not what happened. Instead, Cross's employees claim a man hit Sheriff Morris, who then hit the man back. But the arrest report doesn't describe a fight, just that Morris was taken away in cuffs, charged with disorderly conduct and booked at 3:45 a.m. He later bonded out of jail with a thousand dollars.

His first stop afterwards at around 6 o'clock in the morning? The Huddle House.

"When I came in this morning, the only two customers that were here were the Sheriff and a lady with the Sheriff and he had just gotten out of jail," said Cross

Cross also noted that Sunday was only the second time he'd seen Sheriff Morris. "Two weeks ago there was an incident." He claims officers were called out that time for fighting with the same man in the parking lot, but the Sequatchie County Jail doesn't have any record of Sheriff Morris being arrested before Sunday's incident.

Cross says it's created a lot of buzz in Sequatchie and Bledsoe counties. "He's still an authority figure. He's looked at as an authority figure in his county and not only in his county, but in our county as well."

Sheriff Morris is due in General Sessions Court December 21st on the disorderly conduct charge

everyone has the right to defend themselves, even morons, but don't go looking for it like a hot headed redneck does. If you wanna be a punk, be a punk, if you wanna be a Sheriff, for the love of God act like one, but now I think your one time too manys mayhave cost you Jimmy Morris. You need to go.

All the people in the Huddle House was intoxicated except the 3 employees. They all stated their side of the story. "The other man started it with the sherriff. The other man brought the cigerette in the building & ask the Sherriff to step out side." Yes it was in Dunlap, so most Dunlap Punks are going to say Jimmy started it. When the man walked through the door he was slandered. "Sequatchie can handle themselves, we dont need the Bledsoe County Sherriff here!" What did the sherrif do? Ignored it. It was like all the Huddle House customers where still in High School hating anyone from Bledsoe County. Terrible Actions from the Dunlap Community.

Seriously!!! How about our Sheriff act like a real Sheriff. Hmmmm...Maybe stay out of the bars, stop drinking and partying in public. Blame who you want. The fact is the Sheriff should n \ot have been there to begin with, the first or second time. The incident from two weeks ago was "ignored" and what does our Sheriff do...Go back for more! Horrible judgment call and quite embarassing for the entire county. We look like a bunch of ignorant REDNECKS!

I agree with the above. How can the Sheriff, with his lack of proper judgement, arrest anyone?? Please, all of his backers are either employees or those within the good ole boy network. He is an embarrassment to the entire county. He made the national news. Kind of difficult to do...... Way to go Morris, you are a tush hog who is incapable of providing leadership to the county. Oh yeah, I forgot.....what is your new inmate number? Tragic, we are now a national disgrace, not just in Tennessee. Have some balls Morris, resign and take your band of misfits with you.

The officer who arrested this turd is a good one. Stop sticking up for the loser Sheriff Morris.
