A Mount Sherman man was finally indicted on charges stemming from a violent road rage incident that occurred in Grayson County on Memorial Day weekend.
32-year-old Terry R. Logsdon was indicted on July 8 in Grayson Circuit Court on two counts of assault in the fourth degree with minor injuries, assault in the second degree, wanton endangerment in the first degree, criminal mischief in the second degree, leaving the scene of an accident/failure to render aid or assistance, and being a persistent felony offender in the second degree.
According to the Grayson County Sheriff’s Office (GCSO), the incident occurred near the 14600 block of Grayson Springs Road. Investigating officer Deputy Clay Boone, along with members of the Wax Volunteer Fire Department, arrived on scene at approximately 6:30 p.m.on Sunday, May 24 and interviewed the victim, Dallas Patterson, of Elizabethtown.
After taking Patterson’s testimony, Boone reported that the incident appears to have occurred when a 2010 Honda Fury motorcycle being driven by Patterson, of Elizabethtown, was waiting to turn onto KY 1214.
A maroon Pontiac G6 with temporary tags approached the intersection, and according to a GCSO press release, “Patterson believed that the G6 was letting him turn,” however the G6 proceeded, “nearly causing a collision.”
At that point, the report states that the G6 operator, who has now been identified as Logsdon, stopped his vehicle, exited the car and “pulled a knife on Patterson and punched him in the face.”
Logsdon then allegedly threatened to kill both Patterson and his wife, who was riding with him at the time of the incident.
Logsdon then allegedly got back behind the wheel of his vehicle and ran over Patterson’s motorcycle before striking both Patterson and his wife with the vehicle and pulling away.
The Pattersons reportedly suffered only minor injuries.
The GCSO release explained that witnesses at the scene stated that Logsdon appeared to be intoxicated at the time, and that a woman and two children were in his car while the incident took place.
Police immediately began an investigation and sought the public’s help in locating the driver of the car.
Within a week, officers had identified Logsdon as being the driver of the G6, and with law enforcement on his trail, he turned himself in to police during a June 10 traffic stop in Hardin County.
Sheriff Norman Chaffins explained that Logsdon was taken into custody “when a vehicle that he was a passenger in was stopped for a traffic violation.”
According to Chaffins, “Logsdon exited the vehicle and informed the deputy that he was wanted in Grayson County. Logsdon was arrested, transported to the Grayson/Hardin line, picked up by Deputy Jarrod Mudd, and lodged in the Grayson County Detention Center.”
Logsdon, who had additional warrants against him in Hart County, was held on a $15,000 cash bond until his indictment earlier this month, during which the Commonwealth recommended that his bond be set at $10,000 cash.
Court documents note Logsdon as being a “flight risk” and a “danger to the community” as well as indicating that he was on probation at the time the alleged offense occurred in May.
