The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation on Saturday arrested and charged a Macon County man in connection with a shooting of another man last week.

Tobey Wettig, 41, of Church Street, in Lafayette, TN, was arrested on one count of aggravated assault and five counts of reckless endangerment.

At about 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Wettig was heading home when an unknown person began driving close to him, which angered Wettig.

After Wettig turned into his driveway, the other driver continued toward the intersection of Church Street and Ellington Drive, which is near Macon Christian Academy.

Wettig parked his vehicle at the edge of his driveway, pulled out his handgun and fired in the direction of the other driver, hitting Tommy Hillard, 44, of Lafayette.

Hillard was treated at the hospital and released Friday.

Wettig was charged with one count of aggravated assault and one count of reckless endangerment for allegedly shooting Hillard.

The other four reckless endangerment charges are for four other individuals who were in the vicinity when the shooting occurred.

The shooting closed Macon County schools on Friday as police looked for the person connected to the incident.
