The Scott Conover saga continues

Scott Conover, the man who was arrested in Tennessee for [__“unlawful__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/tennessee-man-arrested-for-unlawful-photography-after-photographing-cop) [__photography__](http://carlosmiller.com/2008/08/05/deputy-threatened-to-arrest-12-year-old-daughter-with-unlawful-photography/)” and then was accused of assaulting a man, is finally going to have his day in court.

On Thursday, Conover will be tried for simple assault, aggravated assault and leaving the scene of an accident with injuries.

He is facing 3 to 5 years in prison.

The charges stem from a traffic collision that occurred in September 2008 with a man he had a restraining order against; a man he accuses of being a child pornographer who allegedly was stalking his teenage daughter.

Conover claims the man rear-ended him. The man claims that Conover pulled in front of him and slammed on the brakes.

Conover claims the man threatened his life, so he punched him.

The man claims Conover threatened to kill him before punching him.

At first, it was Conover’s word against the man’s word.

But two months later, the man produced a witness that supposedly saw everything that took place that afternoon.

That man happens to be an uncle of a Johnson County Sheriff’s deputy.

“There was nobody within five miles on either way on this country road,” Conover said.

“And all of a sudden, this guy comes forward and says he witnessed everything.”

Conover claims this is just another attempt by the Johnson County Sheriff’s Department to persecute him; something it has been doing since 2003 when he filed a complaint against them for beating a man in the parking lot of the bar he owned.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
