Tennessee Bureau of Investigation agents charged a Macon County man Tuesday with burglary and aggravated assault.

On Monday and at the request of District Attorney General Tommy Thompson, TBI agents began an investigation into an assault that happened on Douglas Lane in Lafayette.

Agents identified a suspect as Andy Wayne Goad, 33, of Pleasant Shade, who had a romantic relationship with his girlfriend for two years until December. Goad believed the reason why they broke up was because of another man, agents said.

On Monday, agents said Goad went to his ex-girlfriend’s house on Douglas Lane and entered her home where he found another man and his ex-girlfriend. At that time, he assaulted both of them with a wooden club, according to agents. Both the man and Goad’s ex-girlfriend suffered serious bodily injuries.

On Tuesday, Goad was arrested and charged with one count of especially aggravated burglary, two counts of aggravated assault and one count of unlawful possession of a weapon. He remained Friday at the Macon County Jail with a $25,000 bond.
