Multiple indictments returned for assault, wanton endangerment

A Christian County Grand Jury returned multiple indictments Friday, including for multiple cases of assault and wanton endangerment.

Indicted for first-degree assault, three counts of first-degree wanton endangerment, tampering with physical evidence, fourth-degree assault, unlawful imprisonment and possession of a handgun by a convicted felon is 42-year old Dethaniel Thompson of Hopkinsville. He is alleged to have shot 38-year old Leandre Watkins in the right leg in front of 402 Hancock Street in March. Police say he also fired bullets into three different vehicles parked in the area before fleeing the scene.

Thompson is facing wanton endangerment and unlawful imprisonment charges for a separate incident from earlier in March when he allegedly held his girlfriend at gunpoint and fired three gunshots into the floor after accusing her of cheating.

25-year old Ahgeana Bailey of Hopkinsville is indicted on charges of unlawful imprisonment, two counts of first-degree wanton endangerment, terroristic threatening, tampering with evidence, disorderly conduct, carrying a concealed weapon, possession of a handgun by a convicted felon and several traffic violations. On April 1, Bailey allegedly held her ex-girlfriend against her will in a bathroom while armed with a handgun and assaulted her, causing minor injuries.  She allegedly pointed the gun at two other individuals in the residence.

Also indicted for wanton endangerment is 29-year old Richard Spain of Hopkinsville, who allegedly pointed a gun in another man’s face during an argument on Gospel Peace Road in March. Multiple shots were allegedly fired before police arrival and several spent shell casings were located.  He is additionally charged with tampering with physical evidence, carrying a concealed weapon and alcohol intoxication.
