Hamblen Co Authorities Searching for Suspect Accused of Assaulting Protester

Authorities in Hamblen County are searching for a man accused assaulting a protester in Morristown.

Officials say 21-year-old William Cade Black could be armed and should be considered dangerous. The victim says he was knocked unconscious as the protests turned confrontational Saturday night.

Police identified the suspect as Black and actually located him Monday, but called off the pursuit after they say he was endangering other drivers. When arrested Black will face charges of aggravated riot, assault, felony evading arrest, reckless endangerment and driving on a suspended license.
