MARSHALL CO., Ala. (WHNT) — A former Asbury assistant fire chief is not guilty of assault in the first degree.

After hours of deliberation, a jury came to that verdict Thursday afternoon just before 4 p.m.

Kenneth Jones was accused of running over another man with his truck in the Asbury Volunteer Fire Department parking lot in 2011.

Marshall County Sheriff’s deputies say both men were arguing over an issue unrelated to the fire department.

The man Jones was accused of assaulting, Marlon Banks, was taken to Huntsville hospital at the time for precautions.
