Indiana man indicted for allegedly having a gun during assault


An Indiana man is in custody on a warrant for attempted murder and aggravated burglary.

A Wood County grand jury on Dec. 21 indicted Tyson Lynn Dale Wells, 44, Indianapolis, for two counts felonious assault, both second-degree felonies; aggravated burglary, a first-degree felony; and criminal damaging or endangering, a second-degree felony.

The grand jury did not present an indictment for the attempted murder charge.

Bowling Green Municipal Court issued a warrant for Well’s arrest April 26 after he allegedly fired a weapon into an occupied residence in the city.

He appeared in municipal court Dec. 9 for arraignment and bail was set at $150,000. The case was bound over to the grand jury on Dec. 14 and bail was increased to $250,000.

The Bowling Green Police Division responded to 1017 S. Main St. around 10:53 a.m. on April 26 after receiving a report of a male who had slashed several tires on a vehicle. While responding to that location, reports about shots being fired in the 1000 block of Varsity West were also received.

Upon arrival, officers determined that the incidents were related. Well’s ex-girlfriend was in the apartment and the tires slash were on the boyfriend’s truck, which he had tried to hide by parking it off-site.

The male Varsity West resident told police that Wells had attempted to enter the apartment by breaking the front window. The resident confronted Wells at which time Wells allegedly discharged a firearm into the apartment. No one was struck by the gunfire.

Wells then fled the scene in a dark-colored pickup truck. Officers were unable to locate the vehicle.

A warrant for Wells was filed at the Bowling Green Municipal Court for attempted murder and aggravated burglary.

He was arrested at his home in Indiana on April 29 and held there on felony warrants.

He remained in jail Wednesday.
