Tony Brown, 51, was indicted on two counts of reckless endangerment and one count each of leaving the scene of an accident, reckless driving, evading arrest, failure to yield right-of-way, driving on roadways lined for traffic and violation of the financial responsibility law during events allegedly occurring on June 4.

A true bill was returned on Tiffany Ann Slezak, 27, indicted on one count of theft over $1,000 during a series of events allegedly occurring from Sept. 12 to Sept. 24.

Brandon Wayne Powell, 39, was indicted under two true bills for driving on a suspended license, possession of drug paraphernalia and violation of the child restraint device law during events allegedly occurring on May 21 and May 27 of last year.

An indictment does not indicate guilt. It does indicate that the Grand Jury found enough evidence to warrant turning the case over for trial.
