A Corbin man arrested in connection with a July 24 police pursuit was indicted by a Knox County grand jury Tuesday.
Andrew Hall, 29, received a seven-count indictment after Corbin Police Detective Rusty Hedrick attempted to stop a Toyota truck for various traffic offenses.
The truck, reportedly driven by Hall, also held a passenger, Sylvia Garland.
After the truck’s driver did not stop, Hedrick and other officers pursued the vehicle to Hart’s Cemetery on Kennedy Road in the Moore Hill area of Corbin.
Both Hall and Garland ran from police, with Garland arrested in a field shortly after. Hall remained at large until his arrest.
The first count on the indictment charges first-degree fleeing or evading police with a motor vehicle. The second count indicts Hall on first-degree wanton endangerment for causing danger of death or physical injury to Garland during the vehicle chase. The third count is also first-degree wanton endangerment, this charge for allegedly causing danger of death or physical injury to other motorists during the pursuit.
The fourth charge is first-degree fleeing or evading police during the subsequent foot chase. Count five is failure to wear a seat belt; count six is reckless driving; and count seven is driving while license is suspended or revoked due to a DUI charge, first offense.
