COOKEVILLE – Working alongside investigators from the White County Sheriff’s Office and the office of the 13th District Attorney General, Special Agents from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation have arrested a Sparta man accused of attempted murder in connection to a shooting on Thursday night.

At the request of 13th District Attorney General Bryant Dunaway, TBI Special Agents began investigating the shooting of a 25-year-old man in the driveway of a home in the 800 block of Levon Sparkman Road in Sparta. During the course of the investigation, Agents developed information which led to the home’s occupant, Charles Fisher, as the individual responsible for the crime. The victim was subsequently airlifted to Vanderbilt University Medical Center for treatment.

Early this morning, authorities arrested Fisher and charged the 52-year-old Sparta man with one count of Attempted 2nd Degree Murder. He was booked into the White County Jail, where at the time of this release, he was being held on $500,000 bond.
