The following criminal complaints have been filed in the Tucker County Magistrate office:
Jason Ryan Sines, of Hambleton, was charged with one count DUI Second Offense and one count Driving Revoked DUI. According to the complaint, on April 29 at approximately 7:52 p.m., Trooper B.K. Riffle was dispatched by Tucker County 911 for a dark blue SUV driving recklessly headed toward Parsons from Davis. Riffle observed the vehicle to be stopped on US219 with the keys in the ignition and the engine running. The officer observed a white male sitting in the driver’s seat, appearing to be passed out. The officer opened the door and could detect the odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from the vehicle along with empty beer cans on the floor. He removed the male identified as Jason Sines. Tucker 911 advised that the defendant’s license had been revoked for a prior DUI in Garrett County, Md. in 2018.
The officer asked the defendant to perform a number of field sobriety tests, which he failed. He complied to take a PBT test and the breath sample provided a BAC of .197%. He was placed under arrest and transported to Parsons City Hall for further processing where a secondary chemical test was performed and the breath sample yielded results of .190% BAC. The defendant was then transported to TVRJ to await arraignment.
Corey Eileen Kinzy, of Parsons, was charged with one count of Removal, injury to or destruction of property. The complaint states that on Wednesday, April 5 Patrolman First Class N.C. Gidley and Chief K.L. Keplinger received a call from Tucker 911 in regards to a destruction of property complaint at the intersection of Merrill St. and Highland Lane in Parsons.
Both officers arrived on scene and spoke to the complainant who stated that he had parked his UPS delivery vehicle to deliver tires to a nearby residence when a female subject, identified as Corey Kinzy, of 111 Merrill St. spoke to him making a comment about the tires. He stated that he then took the tires to the neighboring residence and as he returned to his vehicle, he observed Ms. Kinzy walking away from the driver’s side of the vehicle and putting something in her pocket. He then stated that Ms. Kinzy made a comment to him before returning to her residence. The complainant states that he observed scratches down the driver’ side of the vehicle, consistent to what is commonly known as “keying”, that appeared to be fresh. He states that he spoke with his manager who informed him to call Law Enforcement.
PFC Gidley then inspected the UPS vehicle for damage and observed scratches down the driver’s side of the vehicle from approximately the rear wheel well and extended toward the back of the vehicle. It also appeared that a word was written out into the side of the vehicle however it is not clearly legible.
Chief Keplinger went to Ms. Kinzy’s residence and spoke with her while Gidley obtained a written statement from the complainant. Keplinger returned and stated that Ms. Kinzy admitted to the destruction of property and stated that she had written her name into the side of the vehicle. A statement was taken from Kinzy by Gidley during which time she verbally stated the she originally intended to drive the vehicle into a mailbox but the driver did not leave the keys in the ignition. She stated, “I waited nine minutes then put my name on your vehicle.”
Travis Nathaniel Bailey, of Milton, was charged with one count of Malicious or unlawful assault. The complaint states that on Friday, Dec. 2, 2022 Trooper C.A. Hawkins was dispatched via Tucker 911 to Seven Islands Rd for an assault that occurred prior to the initial 911 call.
Hawkins obtained a written statement from Calvin smith who stated that Travis Bailey and Dustin Conrad came onto Landbok Rd and Travis started a fight with a club. Smith stated that Bailey hit him in the side of the head and arm with a club. He advised the officer that the club he used was in the trunk of the vehicle that he was in. Hawkins observed a wooden club approximately 28 inches in length with several markings across the length and what is believed to be a piece of lead embedded in the top. The club was collected and entered into temporary evidence storage.
Smith advised the officer that he had a small wooded baseball bat during the incident. Hawkins observed the bat in the trunk and observed blood across the bat and Smith advised him the blood was his. Smith advised that Bailey had been recording the incident on a digital camera and the camera had been left at the scene. It was also collected for evidence.
On Sunday, April 9 Corporal J.E. Garren with the WVSP Winfield detachment arrested Bailey for an unrelated offense. While in custody, Bailey made a statement that was unprompted by specific questioning, he stated that his old lady called and said Smith was beating on her and wouldn’t let her leave, so he found a ride and went up there to get her.
He stated that when he got there Smith was approaching him with a miniature T-Ball bat in his hand. He further stated that he got out of the vehicle and Smith allegedly got in his face and swung at him. He stated that he protected himself and the altercation ensued. A copy of the Body Worn footage of this statement is attached to this report.
On Monday, April 17 Hawkins obtained a phone statement from the female who stated that Bailey was not supposed to be there. She stated that she contacted Bailey to have Dustin come get her, but she specifically told Bailey not to come. Hatfield further stated that once Travis showed up, she told him to get back in the car and that is when Bailey and Smith started to fight. That is when Bailey pulled out a stick.
