Roane County authorities said they had to deal with a drunken mob arresting six individuals who allegedly forced themselves into the David King mobile home on Steele Hollow Road last week, they say connected to a "romantic entanglement."

A number of the individuals involved in the incident are Calhoun connected.

Spencer Newspapers said The Roane Co. Sheriff's Department, the WV State Police and the Spencer City Police responded to the call after the subjects were trying to get to Nick Sampson, the newspaper says Sampson escaped the wrath of the mob by hiding in a back bedroom with his infant and girlfriend.

Police said Joshua W. Boswell, 21, a former Calhoun resident and Issac Paul Bell, 22, of Grantsville, forced their way into the residence to get at Sampson, allegedly energized by their group.

Police said Boswell and Bell were allegedly in a violent drunken state, both running into the woods when police arrived, to be arrested later.

Arrested at the mobile home, Lisa Godfrey, 42, of Spencer; Santana Boswell, 18, of Mt. Zion; Jessica Bell, 20, of Grantsville; and Michael P. Richards, 20, of Grantsville.

Boswell and Bell have been charged with burglary and child endangerment.

Boswell had been involved in an earlier incident near Orma where he was shot in the head during an alleged home invasion late at night.

Bell has multiple arrests in Calhoun, mostly related to drug charges.

Spencer Newspapers say all the individuals have been released on bond, facing hearings.
