SULLIVAN COUNTY, Tenn. -

The Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a man wanted for aggravated assault and reckless endangerment.

Marlow also allegedly pointed the gun at a woman and the person reporting the incident, and then hit the victim in the face with the barrel of the gun before taking off.

Marlow was not at his last known address.
