A Pineville man was indicted recently by a Bell County Grand Jury for allegedly pointing a gun at three deputies and assaulting two of them.

Orville Hobbs Jr.,48, was indicted for three counts of first-degree wanton endangerment, two counts of third-degree assault, second-degree fleeing or evading police, three counts of third-degree terroristic threatening and one count resisting arrest.

Hobbs was arrested on the charges in February following an incident near his home.

According to the citation, Hobbs came to Balkan Road and pointed what appeared to be a semi-automatic shotgun at Bell County Sheriff Deputies BJ Brock, Carl Frith and Joel Quillen while they attempted to serve a warrant.

The citation states deputies ordered Hobbs to drop the weapon, which he did not comply. He turned his four-wheeler around and drove back to his residence. After Hobbs was placed under arrest, he grabbed Quillen and attempted to pull him to the ground. He also kicked Brock while being placed in the police cruiser.

According to the citation, Hobbs threatened to have individuals harm the deputies and their families.

In other court news, Heather M. Davis, 26, of Middlesboro, was indicted for third-degree assault, second-degree fleeing or evading police, giving officers a false name or address, resisting arrest, menacing and for being a persistent felony offender.

According to the arrest citation, Davis was a passenger in a motor vehicle during a traffic stop in April on Archer Road in Middlesboro. When Kentucky State Police Trooper Aaron Frederick asked for her ID, she replied she left her purse at home and did not know her Social Security number.

The citation states she told the trooper her name was Amanda Jackson. When the trooper ran the name he found the person in the vehicle was not Jackson. When Frederick went to detain Davis for more questioning, she pushed him and took off running on foot, according to the citation.

The citation states Frederick caught Davis and got her to the ground where she grabbed his uniform and hands. It also states, she picked his handcuffs off the ground and threw them across the lawn. After the trooper drew his Tazer, Davis became cooperative, police said.
