Rockwood resident Roberta Dennis is accusing District 2 Commissioner Junior Hendrickson of assaulting her with his stomach after the July 11 Roane County Commission meeting.
“I never touched her,” Hendrickson said.
Dennis alleges the assault happened in the commission room immediately after the meeting.
“Within 60 seconds or less from when they broke,” she said. “I didn’t see him coming, but I surely felt him.”
Dennis said Hendrickson’s stomach struck her on the hip.
“Bam, bam,” she said. “It wasn’t once; it was twice.”
