Patterson and Bell County EMS responded to the home and found Caldwell suffering from a laceration to the jawline and neck. He could not be flown out because of bad weather conditions, so he was transported to Middlesboro ARH for treatment.

The cause of the incident remains under investigation by Patterson.

Holland remains behind bars with no bond. He is charged with assault in the first degree.
