Man Calls Police on Himself Asking to be Arrested then Resists

A man calls the police on himself after allegedly holding down his wife for an hour restricting her ability to move.

Knoxville Police Officers responded to a reported domestic assault Tuesday afternoon at 1212 Snyder School Road. They found 45 year-old Jason Hayes outside and he told officers he had assaulted his wife and needed to go to jail.

When officers asked Hayes to step out of the home and speak with them, the suspect began reaching towards a table that had several unknown objects on it. Police warned Hayes to step away, he refused and grabbed an officer. Officers had to use force to subdue Hayes who was kicking, hitting and fighting Officers.

The victim told officers her husband had been drinking and had accused her of having an affair. She told police she pretended to pass out so Hayes would stop strangling her.
She suffered a broken orbital bone.

Hayes was eventually taken into custody on aggravated assault charges.
