Convicted Felon Wanted For Biting Cats And Stealing Guns Tries To Run Over Cop

Convicted felon Troy Darnell Hollins was arrested on outstanding warrants and a slew of new charges on March 10.

Kingsport, TN – A convicted felon wanted for stealing guns and biting cats has been arrested for allegedly trying to kill a Kingsport police officer.

At approximately 4 p.m. on March 10, Kingsport police spotted 45-year-old Troy Darnell Hollins walking down Dorothy Street, Kingsport Police Department (KPD) Public Information Officer Thomas Patton said in a press release.

The officer was aware that Hollins was wanted for two counts of aggravated animal cruelty and theft of property over $1,000.

When the officer ordered Hollins to stop, the suspect immediately jumped into a silver Pontiac Grand Prix and drove away, Officer Patton explained.

The officer ran across several yards and managed to cut Hollins off on an adjacent street.

“The officer once again shouted for Mr. Hollins to stop, but he veered the vehicle directly toward the officer and accelerated in a deliberate attempt to hit him,” according to Officer Patton.

The officer dodged out of the way just before the Pontiac traveled up onto the sidewalk, crashing into another motorist and a utility pole.

As Hollins sped away down Gibson Mill Road, the officer alerted other officers to be on the lookout for him.

A short while later, another Kingsport police officer attempted to pull Hollins over on West Stone Drive, Officer Patton said.

The fleeing suspect proceeded to lead officers on a chase, flying through multiple red lights at speeds that topped 100 miles per hour.

When he reached the intersection of West Stone Drive and University Boulevard, Hollins lost control of the car and slammed into a tree.

The officer busted out a window of the suspect vehicle and placed Hollins under arrest on additional charges of attempted first-degree murder of a police officer, resisting a stop, leaving the scene of a motor vehicle collision, reckless driving, three counts of failure to obey a traffic signal, resisting arrest, felony reckless endangerment, unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia, marijuana possession, and driving on a suspended license.

He was also served with his outstanding warrants.

According to an earlier Kingsport Police Department (KPD) press release, Hollins bit and “seriously injured two different cats belonging to his ex-girlfriend.”

Police said that he “intentionally tortured the two cats in a depraved and sadistic manner.”

The theft charge stemmed from another incident, during which Hollins, a convicted felon, allegedly stole two handguns from his ex-girlfriend’s safe.

Just as a note he is not representative of us Tennesseans. I'm allergic to cats but certainly don't hate them.

I hate animal cruelty. If I was KING, if you torture an animal (are you listening Michael Vick) it's an automatic death penalty, no trial.

I agree and he definitely needs a dose of it!. I’m not necessarily a cat person but anybody who harm an animal cat or dog needs to have his teeth knocked out.

This is nothing in the way of animal cruelty. In Vietnam they put dogs alive into hot woks of oil and cook them for their dinner. You haven’t heard anything until you’ve heard the screaming of that animal.
