Deputies were called to the residence on Meade Street in Maryville on Saturday just after 10 am.

The two victims told investigators that Greg Houghes walked into his roommate's room and started hitting and strangling him. When the other roommate tried to intervene, the incident reports says that Houghes shoved and hit him.

One of the victims ran out of the house and called 911. The two victims and a witness met the officers outside when they arrived. Houghes refused to the leave the house, and deputies had to remove him by force.
  
According to the report, Houghes admits he was angry that the lights were left on and yelled at his roommates, but he claims he was shoved before he threw a punch.
