The man who was shot by State Police while allegedly attempting to run over a trooper in December has been indicted by the Christian Grand Jury.
Indicted on attempted murder, wanton endangerment, fleeing from police and DUI charges was 29-year old Michael Aaron Burgess of 213 Gritton Avenue, Oak Grove.
Burgess was approached by police on December 3rd after someone called in a suspicious vehicle report on Champion Road. Police attempted to pull Burgess over, but he allegedly fled and eventually spun his vehicle out on Rosetown Road.
That’s when he allegedly “gassed” his vehicle and sped toward Trooper James McArthur in an apparent attempt to run him over. Trooper McArthur fired at least one shot into Burgess’ vehicle, wounding him with non-life-threatening injuries.
Burgess would eventually be pulled over and arrested in Todd County.
The Grand Jury also returned an indictment against 41-year old Christian County Constable Mark Graham on knowingly receiving stolen property charges. Police allege that a golf cart stolen from the Country Club was found at his 3500 Bahama Drive residence November 21st.
The cart reportedly had the exterior serial number scratched off, but the number found on the inside of the cart matched the one reported stolen months earlier. Police also write they found five flags and a rake belonging to the country club on Graham’s property.
Receiving a true bill on first degree burglary charges was 22-year old Kyle Lee Reigel of Frog Hop Road, who allegedly stole a tractor and two trucks from a family member on Bell Chapel Road near Pembroke. Reigel allegedly took the items to sell as scrap metal.
