GRAND JURY: Lakeside attacker's charges upgraded; CSH pecan grove "rolling shootout" suspects indicted
Richard Tuberville, accused of seriously injuring two men during a liquor bottle attack late last month, was indicted on Monday on two counts of aggravated battery and one count of simple assault.
Tuberville, pictured on the top row on the far left, initially was charged with aggravated assault, but the District Attorney's Office ultimately decided to upgrade the charges to aggravated battery. Aggravated battery essentially is when a victim permanently "loses" something, whether it's a body part or cognitive function. In this case, one of the victims remains hospitalized, has severe brain damage and is unable to recognize his family members and recall basic information, a family friend told Baldwin2K News.
An aggravated battery conviction carries a "minimum imprisonment" of five years.
The incident occurred during the early-morning hours of Sunday, Aug. 28 along the shores of Lake Sinclair. The reported weapon was a bottle of Clase Azul Reposado Tequila. When deputies first responded to the RV park, the bottle initially was unrecognizable and "was shattered on the ground into pieces with blood on it," according to a Baldwin County Sheriff's Office incident report.
The disagreement between Tuberville and the two men actually began inside of the bar at Duke's Dawg House on Sinclair Marina Road earlier that night. A deputy arrived and eventually "all parties left by boat."
At some point after that, the same deputy responded to Little River RV Park in reference to an aggravated assault. The deputy first encountered a woman "who was crying and holding a towel to the bleeding head of (victim 2)."
"He way laying in wait for us," the woman relayed to the deputy.
Both men were "on the ground unresponsive," according to the incident report, and victim 2 "had a major head injury and significant blood loss."
Also indicted earlier this week were:
Montavious Lewis, 17, was indicted on one count each of fleeing/attempting to elude and obstruction of an officer. Back in May, Lewis reportedly carjacked a work truck in Sparta and led law enforcement on a high-speed chase through Milledgeville. The incident occurred during the lunch rush downtown, where a number of people were celebrating graduations and the beginning of the holiday weekend. As the chase came barreling toward town, Milledgeville Police Department officers were in the process of laying "spike strips" on Ga. 22 at the river bridge when the truck came into view. Lewis was being chased by the Hancock County sheriff himself, Terrell Primas. The MPD officers didn't get a chance to lay the strips, however, which is when Lewis "swerved directly at" one of the officers, according to investigators. The chase continued through the heart of downtown at speeds between 45-60 miles per hour, added investigators. In late August, meanwhile, Lewis' name was back in the news after he was shot by a Hancock County Sheriff's Office deputy following a reported scuffle on Tuesday night in Hancock County. Lewis was rushed to a hospital in Athens and listed in stable condition. Lewis is accused of stealing a vehicle before a BOLO was issued and a deputy attempted to initiate a traffic stop on Shoals Road outside of Sparta, according to a GBI press release.
• Kibias Maliek Mosley, a prominent and up-and-coming rapper whose YouTube channel has gained more than a million views, was indicted on a laundry list of charges – seven counts of aggravated assault, four counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, as well as one count each of possession of a firearm by a convicted felony and giving false information. The indictment stems from a "rolling gunfight" that began last November on Swint Avenue and continued through Central State Hospital, where Georgia College & State University was hosting a Parents Weekend event at the Pecan Grove that included a bluegrass music concert and a cookout. One man was hospitalized with "serious injuries" and was in "critical condition," according to investigators. Mosley, pictured on the top row in the middle, then released a music video several months later that detailed his journey. Three other men also were incited earlier this week on the same charges and in connection with the same incident – Jakobe Carnez Brown, Jaquarius Montrell Marshall and Antonio Dante Edwards.
Brown, 19, actually was incited twice earlier this week. He also was indicted on one count of aggravated assault from a separate incident. Brown, pictured in the top row at right, was one of three men involved in a shootout in the Riverbend apartments over the summer that left three people hospitalized.

• Thaddius Bernard Hall, pictured in the bottom row at right, was indicted for aggravated assault on a public safety officer, fleeing/attempting to elude, criminal interference with government property, hit and run and driving with a suspended license. Hall has spent much of his adult life in prison. The incident actually occurred in early June, and Hall remained on the run for roughly a month-and-a-half. Hall's probation officer spotted Hall getting into a white Dodge Challenger and requested backup from the Sheriff's Office. Hall then mashed the gas on Park Avenue and was "coming at (a deputy) at an extremely high rate of speed," according to an incident report. Added a deputy's narrative in the incident report: "I activated my blue lights and brought my patrol car to a slow roll and then stop, partially blocking the roadway to indicate to the approaching vehicle that I intended for them to stop. While this was not a 'road block' and instead a traffic stop, I did utilize my patrol car to partially block the road in order to indicate to the driver I intended to stop them. Since I did utilize my patrol car in somewhat of a roadblock manner, I followed Sheriff's Office Policy by giving the vehicle 'a way out with moderate maneuvering.' With my blue lights still activated and me giving clear indications for the vehicle to stop, the Challenger purposely rammed my patrol car. Due to the rapidly evolving events, I had no time to move my car or attempt to avoid the crash."
