VANCEBURG — A Garrison man was recently indicted by a Lewis County grand jury for the alleged assault and endangerment on several individuals involving a motor vehicle

Nathan Lumpkins, 19, was indicted for two counts of second-degree assault, fourth-degree assault and two counts of first-degree wanton endangerment.

According to the indictment, on June 17, Lumpkins allegedly assaulted Michael Lumpkins of Tollesboro by means of what the indictment described as a “dangerous instrument.”

Sandra Lumpkins, also of Vanceburg, and Alicia Clark of Tollesboro, were also among the individuals allegedly assaulted by Nathan Lumpkins by pushing and striking them with his fists.

Nathan Lumpkins had also supposedly attempted to run over Michael and Sandra Lumpkins with an automobile with the intent to harm them, garnering the first-degree wanton endangerment charges, a class D felony punishable up to five years in prison.

Deputy Mark Sparks of the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office, arrested Nathan Lumpkins and he was then sent to the Lewis County Detention Center the same day.

Nathan Lumpkins is currently lodged at the detention center under a $5,000 cash or property bond.
