Man charged in police fracas indicted

GREENUP — A man involved in a fracas with police officers in August has been indicted on multiple felony charges.

In a true bill handed up earlier this month, a Greenup County grand jury charged Bryan A. Endicott, 49, of Raceland, with first-degree assault, criminal attempt to commit first-degree assault and four counts of third-degree assault on a police officer.

Endicott also was charged with two counts of fourth-degree assault and one count of second-degree criminal mischief, both misdemeanors, and with second-degree persistent felony offender.

First-degree assault and criminal attempt to commit first-degree assault both are Class B felonies that carry 10-to- 20-year prison sentences. Those counts allege Endicott used a deadly weapon or dangerous instrument to cause serious physical injury to a woman, and attempted to use a weapon to do the same to Raceland Police Officer Eric Ross.

Third-degree assault is a Class D felony that carries a one- to five-year sentence. Those counts are for Endicott allegedly punching and kicking Ross, Raceland Police Chief Don Sammons, Worthington Police Chief Mike Hartman and Greenup Police Chief Roger Russell.

The criminal mischief charge is for Endicott allegedly damaging property owned by Our Lady of Bellefonte Hospital and several police officers, causing a loss of $500 to $1,000.

The alleged offenses charged in the indictment occurred on Aug. 28.

A grand jury indictment is a formal accusation of a crime and does not establish guilt.

Others named in the most recent round of true bills handed up by the grand jury were:

‰James D. Osborne, 43, of West Portsmouth, charged with theft by failure to make required disposition of property.

‰Marvin D. Hieneman, 37, of Ashland, charged with tampering with a prisoner monitoring device and first-degree persistent felony offender.

‰Joshua S. Perkins, 36, of Greenup, charged with first-degree drug trafficking.

‰Caitlin Rae Fraley, 24, of Greenup, charged with tampering with a prisoner monitoring device and first-degree persistent felony offender.
