9 Months in Jail for Knife Threat

The Georgia man accused of threatening a Delta County woman with a knife is spending the next 9 months in jail.

20-year-old Timothy Coble of Moultrie, Georgia has been sentenced to a year in jail with credit for 97 days served.

In February, he pleaded no contest to felonious assault.

The charge came from an incident at a home on North 9th Street in Escanaba the morning of Christmas Eve.

Coble was accused of producing a knife and holding it to a woman’s neck.

She wasn’t hurt.

Coble claims he was drunk at the time.
