Two McMinnville men have been charged with attempted aggravated robbery after one of them pulled a knife on a DeKalb County man and asked for his wallet. It happened in DeKalb County.
Authorities say 19 year old Logan Tyler Martin and 18 year Charles Robert Fults, Jr., both of McMinnville are each under a $10,000 bond and they will make a court appearance on May 19.
Sheriff Patrick Ray said that on Friday, Martin drove up to a location on McMinnville Highway where the intended victim was doing some yard work. Fults, a passenger with Martin, got out of the vehicle, pulled a knife as he approached the man and demanded his wallet. When the victim refused to hand over the wallet, Fults got back in the vehicle with Martin and they drove away. After the offense was reported to authorities, the vehicle was spotted in Warren County where Fults and Martin were taken into custody.

A bill allowing staff and faculty at Tennessee's public colleges and universities to be armed on campus has become law without Gov. Bill Haslam's signature.
Haslam said in a statement Monday that he disagreed with the bill for not allowing campus leaders to make their own decision about allowing guns. But the governor acknowledged that the final version of the measure had addressed concerns raised by college administrators, with provisions protecting colleges from liability in lawsuits and a requirement to notify law enforcement about who is armed on campus.
The National Rifle Association had argued against allowing individual institutions to opt out of the guns-on-campus bill.
