55-year-old Gregory Barrett was charged with harassment when he incessantly called a Mount Juliet business trying to reach his ex-wife who had blocked him on her personal phone.
On April 10th, Officer Travis Rourke was called to Wilson Trucking at 7250 Eastgate Boulevard in regard to harassing calls. The manager Charles Dees told officers that he had received at least eleven calls from Gregory Barrett trying to reach his ex-wife Lisa Barrett. He noted that Gregory sounded drunk and was implying something along the lines of an injury or death involving the children of the divorced couple.
After their divorce in December, Gregory called Lisa so much that she blocked him prompting him to begin calling her incessantly at work. Another night manager at the business knew the situation and ignores the calls but Mr. Dees, being ignorant of the situation, answered the call. Lisa was aware that her ex was attempting to call her to unsettle her in regard to their grown children.
Gregory Barrett was arrested and charged with harassment. He was later released on his own recognizance.
