Two Sullivan County Constables are Charged with Assault and Official Misconduct

Two Sullivan County Constables are charged with Assault and Official Misconduct.

The charges stem from a TBI investigation into these allegations for 83 year-old Ralph King and 62 year-old Marshall Buckner who agents says assaulted an employee at a Kingsport business in February of last year.

Last month, the Sullivan County Grand Jury returned indictments charging both King and Buckner with one count of Assault and two counts of Official Misconduct.

Both were arraigned in court today (Thursday).
