Grand jury releases indictments

RUSK — A Cherokee County grand jury indicted 23 people at the end of last month.

Among those indicted was Jarrod Bateman, 31, of Jacksonville for aggravated assault and unlawful restraint.

According to Cherokee County Sheriff’s Department’s Det. Dusty Lee, Bateman, along with two other unnamed subjects, tried to prevent a person from going to a deer lease.

“They confronted the victim with guns and ended up firing a round at one of the victims,” Lee said.

Lee said there were as many as three persons in the vehicle who were trying to leave. One person was able to get away and contacted the department, he said.

When they arrived on the scene, he said Bateman and the other two individuals were there and apparently intoxicated. A firearm and ammunition were also found at the scene.

If convicted, Bateman faces a second-degree felony for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and a third-degree felony for unlawful restraint.
