Grand Jury Indicts About 20 People

About 20 individuals were indicted on various charges Tuesday by a Greene County grand jury.

All those indicted were to be arraigned today in Greene County Criminal Court.


Haskell R. Charles Jr., 53, of 620 Fish Hook Road, Mosheim, was indicted on charges of driving under the influence-sixth offense, driving under the influence, driving on a revoked license-sixth offense, driving on a revoked license, reckless endangerment, evading arrest, failure to produce evidence of financial responsibility and failure to maintain lane.

The charges stem from an incident on Jan. 13 that was investigated by the Tennessee Highway Patrol.

Charles was seen driving erratically and placed others in danger by of death or serious injury "by driving his vehicle eastward in the westbound lane of Highway 11E," the indictment said.

A report by Trooper Derek Turberville said Charles was "causing vehicles to go off the roadway to avoid [a] head-on collision," the report said.

Turberville activated his patrol car lights and siren on West Andrew Johnson Highway near the intersection with Pottertown Road, in Mosheim.

Charles allegedly would not pull over "until the vehicle was forced to stop by using the trooper's vehicle," the report said.

Charles allegedly refused field sobriety tests "but stated he was intoxicated," the report said. Blood was later drawn to determine Charles' blood alcohol content.

He was previously convicted of DUI in November 2011, March 2006, May 2001, December 1996 and August 1993, the indictment said.

Charles was also convicted of driving on a revoked license on five occasions between 1989 and 2011, the indictment said.


Cody Marcus Ryan Ferguson, 21, of 42 Melody Circle, Afton, was indicted on a felony charge of escape.

On Feb. 27, Ferguson allegedly committed the offense "by knowingly escaping" from the Greene County Detention Center after having been convicted of a felony offense, the indictment said.

Ferguson allegedly did so by "departing from his work detail without authorization and failing to return to the custody of [deputies]," the indictment said.

A Greeneville Department of Public Works employee called the Greene County Detention Center on Feb. 27 to report that Ferguson walked away from his work detail.

Initial efforts to locate him were unsuccessful.

"It was determined that Cody did, in fact, escape from the work crew," a Sheriff's Department report said.

Investigation traced Ferguson to a friend's house on Lincoln Avenue in Newport. Cocke County Sheriff Armando Fontes and Chief Deputy John Carrell used an unmarked vehicle to locate Ferguson on Feb. 28.

Ferguson allegedly fled on foot from officers and was chased through a number of yards covering eight blocks before being struck with a Taser and captured.

Ferguson was convicted in November 2012 in Greene County Criminal Court on charges of aggravated burglary, possession of burglary tools, tampering with evidence, evading arrest and driving under the influence.

He was sentenced to a prison term of four years at 30 percent release eligibility for those offenses, court officials said.


A man who allegedly fired a handgun into an occupied house on March 31 and then crashing a sport utility vehicle nearby was indicted on charges of aggravated assault and theft over $10,000 but less than $60,000.

Jose Cahlen Reynoso, 19, of 6945 Warrensburg Road, allegedly fired "multiple shots from a semi-automatic pistol" into a bedroom, the indictment said.

The 2005 Toyota 4runner SUV Reynoso was driving was allegedly stolen earlier from a Greene County woman, the indictment said.

The pistol was fired into a house in the 1500 block of Hartman Road, sheriff's Detective Sgt. William J. Davis said in a report after Reynoso's arrest.

An occupant told deputies he was "awakened by a noise" and went into the kitchen, where he "heard what sounded like a gunshot," sheriff's Deputy Anthony Pruitt said in a report.

The homeowner's grandson said someone shot into his room, the report said.

"On inspection of the room, I found four bullet holes in the window and recovered two copper jackets and one piece of lead for evidence," the report said.

One of the bullets struck a picture frame in the 17-year-old's room, the report said.

No injuries were reported.

The victim told deputies he saw a "truck-type vehicle" headed in the direction of Dulaney Road. Minutes later, deputies received a report of a vehicle that rolled over in the 3000 block of Dulaney Road.

Shell casings and a gun holster were recovered from the Toyota SUV, the report said.

The teenage occupant of the house identified Reynoso as the man who "had started some stuff" with him several weeks earlier that resulted in a fight, the report said.
