Two men with histories of driving-under-the-influence convictions were among about 20 people indicted on criminal charges Wednesday by a Greene County Grand Jury.
All the defendants indicted Wednesday will appear today for arraignment in Greene County Criminal Court.
James Junior Fawbush, 41, of 2960 Doty Chapel Road, Afton, was indicted on charges of driving under the influence-sixth offense, driving under the influence, driving on a revoked license-sixth offense, and violation of the Habitual Motor Vehicle Offender Act.
Fawbush was charged with the offenses on Aug. 17, 2012. He was stopped on Baileyton Road for not wearing a seat belt, David Good, a Tennessee Highway Patrol trooper, said in a report.
Fawbush had a strong odor of alcohol on his breath and said "he had only drank one beer," the report said.
Fawbush did poorly on field sobriety tests. The indictment states he was declared a habitual motor vehicle offender in May 2001 in Hawkins County Criminal Court.
Fawbush has previous DUI convictions in 2008, 2001, 1999, 1997 and 1994 in Hawkins and Grainger counties, according to the indictment.
FOURTH DUI CHARGED
Terry Lee Owens, 51, of 737 Midway Railroad St., Midway, was indicted on charges of driving under the influence-fourth offense, driving under the influence, driving on a revoked license-third offense, speeding, and two counts of DUI enhancement.
The DUI enhancement charges recommend an enhanced sentence because there were two children in the car, ages 10 and 13, when Owens was arrested.
Owens was pulled over on Sept. 8 on West Andrew Johnson Highway for driving 75 mph in a 45 mph speed zone, Greeneville police Officer Joe Prokop said in a report.
Owens told officers he drank about four beers before the traffic stop. He had a strong odor of alcohol and did poorly on field sobriety tests, the report said.
He has three previous DUI convictions in Greene County, two in 2007 and one in 2008, according to the indictment.
Two men and a woman were indicted on felony counts of aggravated burglary in connection with a break-in on Oct. 1, 2012, at an apartment in the 6900 block of East Andrew Johnson Highway.
Jeremy Nathaniel Curtis, 19, of 713 Carson St., was also indicted on two counts of theft of property valued over $500 but less than $1,000.
Cassandra Kay Duncan, 22, of 177 S. Highland Ave., was also additionally indicted on two counts of theft of property valued over $500 but less than $1,000.
Joshua B. Johnson, 25, of 225 Quillen Shell Road, was also indicted on one count of theft of property valued over $500 but less than $1,000.
Two flat-screen televisions, Xbox 360 games and other property was taken from the address, the indictments state.
The trio was taken into custody after a witness saw two men loading a television into a car.
When he realized the pair was breaking into a neighbor's apartment, he spoke to them, and they laid the television on the ground and ran into the woods, sheriff's Deputy Ricky Graham said in a report.
Other possessions from inside the apartment were found in the car, the report said.

* Willard Nathan Edwards, 42, of 700 Cannon Road, Limestone: setting fire to personal property.
* Johnny Ray Estepp, 40, of Fairview Road: setting fire to personal property.
