Curtis Jenkins Pleads Not Guilty To Reckless Endangerment
A Mills man denies that he stabbed one of his neighbors.
Forty-nine year old Curtis Jenkins has pleaded not guilty to one charge of reckless endangerment.
According to Mills police, on Sunday morning, September 23rd, the victim and his son had returned home, when they said Jenkins came out to yell at them about shining their car lights into his house.
The victim told investigators that when he went to talk to Jenkins, he was stabbed in the arm with a knife, by Jenkins.
When interviewed by police on scene, Jenkins said he had no idea what was going on, and that he did not have any knives.
He allowed police to search his trailer, and there they found knives littered all over the place, although none were found with blood on them.
Jenkins then told investigators that the victim and his son were buying meth and that they jumped his fence to attack him.
Officers detected the odor of alcohol on Jenkins’ breath and he later admitted that he had been drinking prior to the incident.
Jenkins’ bond was set at seven-hundred and fifty dollars and he could receive up to one year in prison if convicted.
The victim was treated for his injuries at a hospital.
