A Creek Wood High School teacher and assistant football coach was shot Wednesday evening during what police said was an altercation with his ex-wife’s husband. Matthew Jones of Dickson was shot once in the lower back and was flown by LifeFlight to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he was listed in stable condition. Dickson Police Department Detective Don Arnold said Rodger Dale Waynick is charged with one count of attempted criminal homicide. Arnold said Waynick is married to Jones’s former wife Laura and the Waynicks were at Jones’s Payne Springs Road home shortly before 6 pm Wednesday to pick up the former couple’s two children, ages 6 and 10. Waynick told investigators Jones came out to his car and confronted him about statements the children had made that their stepfather slapped them in the back of the head. When Waynick admitted that he had, he claims Jones began throwing punches at him through the driver’s window. Arnold said that during the altercation, Waynick pulled a .45-caliber semiautomatic pistol from his waistband and fired two shots. The first shot passed through the car’s windshield and the second shot struck Jones in the left side of his lower back as he apparently was turning away, the detective said. Arnold said Waynick does have a permit to carry a weapon. The detective said Laura Waynick and the two children were outside the home and witnessed the shooting. Late Wednesday night Arnold said he had not had the opportunity to speak with Jones and did not have any information on the extent of his injuries. Waynick is being held on $125,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in Dickson Municipal Court Nov. 15. Arnold said the investigation is continuing and could not say whether any additional charges will be filed.
