ROGERSVILLE - A Hawkins County man who allegedly spit at and threw urine on employees of the Hawkins County Sheriff's Office has been indicted on three counts of assault by a Hawkins County Grand Jury. Antony Lee Fugate, 53, 854 Old Stage Road, was indicted February 1 on three counts of assault and a count of aggravated domestic assault in connection with separate incidents. On June 5, 2011, Fugate was charged with domestic assault for an altercation with a family member in which he allegedly displayed a knife. A week later, Fugate was involved in an incident in which he reportedly spit in the face of one HCSO officer, kicked another in the stomach and threw urine at a third, conduct the indictment describes as "extremely offensive and provocative." The grand jury also handed down indictments against a man who faked an illness while on his way to jail in December and then tried to escape. Andrew Jackson Wallace, 34, 543 West Bear Hollow Road, Rogersville, was indicted on charges evading arrest, resisting arrest and felony escape. On December 15, 2011, deputies tried to serve arrest warrants out of general sessions and criminal court on Wallace. Upon arrival, Lt. Greg Larkin, of the Hawkins County Sheriff's Department approached the front of the residence, with Wallace allegedly running from the back to a wooded area. Deputy Corey Young observed Wallace hiding and ordered him to surrender. Larkin attempted to place Wallace in custody, at which time Wallace allegedly assaulted Larkin. After being taken into custody and while being transported to jail, Wallace allegedly began pretending he was ill and Sgt. Nathan Simpson stopped to partially roll down the cruiser's window. Wallace allegedly slid one hand out of his handcuffs and extended it out of the window, opening the car door from the outside. Wallace then took off running again and attempted to escape a second time, but was caught. Other indictments returned by the grand jury include: • Candy Lynn Barnes (aka Candy Manis), 42, 2054 Pressman's Home Road, Rogersville, possession of Schedule II narcotics (Oxymorphone) with intent to deliver. • Michael Dombrowski, 28, 592 Loela Street, Russellville, two counts of forgery and two counts of identity theft. • Rodney Kevin Jones, 37, 541 Kite Road, Rogersville, aggravated burglary, theft less than $500, and two counts of forgery. • Colin Eric Lawrence, 42, 149 Kingsley Street, Kingsport, possession of Schedule II narcotics (26.14 grams of cocaine) with intent to deliver. • Ronald Joseph Meyer, 49, 1368 Burlington Drive #5, Church Hill, violation of the Habitual Motor Vehicle Offender Act. • Brandon Shaun Self, 20, 184 Jordan Lane, Bean Station, possession of marijuana with intent to deliver. • Elmer Herbert Simpson, 153 Hoard Lane Lot 56, Church Hill, possession of Schedule III narcotics (Dihydrocodeinone) with intent to deliver, and maintaining a dwelling where narcotics are housed or sold. • Dwayne Charles Troutman Jr., 20, 2913 Woodbind Avenue, Knoxville, introduction of contraband into a penal facility and possession of Schedule II (cocaine) with intent to deliver. • Larry M.
