Gun Charge Bound Over to Grand Jury

Aggravated assault charges against a Putnam County man have been bound over to the grand jury. A preliminary hearing was held this week for 67-year-old Bud Collins of Springboro Road who is accused of firing a handgun near his neighbor's property last month. Authorities say the incident occurred on June 13th when Collins, who was allegedly intoxicated, came to the fence between his yard and his neighbor's, and pointed a gun at the man, his grandson and another neighbor who came out to investigate when he heard shots fired. If the grand jury chooses to indict him, Collins will be back in court in September. Right now, he is free on a $300,000 bond.
