BHS vandalism case reset again


Another scheduled preliminary hearing, another postponement.

The preliminary hearing for two Farragut High School seniors, charged with one count each of felony vandalism following the desecration of Bearden High School property last October, once again has been reset.

Defendants Mitch Kleiber, 18, and Tyler Crone, 18, joined their attorneys and family members at City-County Building prepared to appear in Knox County Third General Sessions Felony Court, Division IV, before Judge Andrew Jackson VI Thursday, April 22.

However, Jackson granted this latest postponement — with the new hearing date Thursday, June 24.

Mike Nassios, attorney for Crone, declined comment about why the hearing was rescheduled. Gregory P. Isaacs, attorney for Kleiber, was not immediately available following their appearance before Jackson.


Crone and Kleiber, along with a 17-year old FHS student, were charged with causing more than $6,000 of damage to BHS Thursday, Oct. 8, less than 48 hours before the annual Admirals versus Bulldogs high school football game was scheduled at Bearden.

A Feb. 10 court appearance before Jackson ended one failed attempt “to see if the matter was going to be resolved in any other way — by agreement,” said John Gill, special counsel with Knox County District Attorney General’s office.
