Ringgold man arrested for DUI after violent domestic in Catoosa County

According to a Catoosa County Sheriff’s Office incident report, on February 11th, 2022, at approximately 7:13 PM, Deputy Gant and Corporal Cantrell were dispatched to an address on Carroll Drive in reference to a violent domestic in progress. According to the report, “As deputies were getting close to the scene, they were advised by dispatch that the offender later identified as Brandon Seib, 39, of Ringgold, had possibly left the scene. When deputies arrived on the scene, they saw a male and a female in the residence. The male ran out the back door and into the woods. The female came out and talked to deputies. The female identified the male as her live-in boyfriend, and she advised that he had been upset with her on this date and started hitting her in the face. She stated that he broke a glass picture that hung in the living room and a door. Corporal Cantrell observed the victim have a busted lip and redness around her cheek area, consistent with her statements. Corporal Cantrell also observed the broken pieces of glass in the floor that the victim referred to.” During the interview, 2000 Chrysler Sebring came down Carrol drive and pulled into the driveway. According to the report, Brandon got out of the vehicle and was coming to the trailer when two dogs had gotten into a very aggressive fight. The fight continued to the point that it was causing injury to both dogs. Deputy Harris then pulled out his agency-issued X2 taser and deployed one cartridge into the more aggressive dog. The dog let go and then fled the scene. According to the report, “Brandon then got up, and it was clear based on Corporal Cantrell’s training and experience he was extremely intoxicated. Corporal Cantrell asked Brandon if he had consumed any alcoholic beverages this date, and he advised he had six beers. Corporal Cantrell advised Brandon that he should not have been driving, which he stated he was not driving. He just brought the car down the road from a friend’s house on Carrol Drive. Corporal Cantrell then advised Brandon that he was seen driving the vehicle by multiple deputies, and he stated that he only drove it on Carrol drive.” During field sobriety testing, Brandon showed several signs of impairment and showed a BAC of .171 grams on the preliminary breath test (PBT). Catoosa County 911 Center advised Brandon’s license was suspended multiple times through Tennessee. Brandon was transported to the Catoosa County Jail, charged with battery FVA, criminal trespass FVA, DUI, and driving while license is suspended.
