More Charges from Hickory Tavern Incident

More warrants were served yesterday on a young man already facing five charges from an incident off Hickory Tavern’s Brick House Road on Monday of this week. 20-year-old Colton David Hurley of Stiles Lane was released from Hospital Wednesday, after treatment for reportedly self-inflicted shotgun injury to his face. Initial charges were Attempted Murder, 1st Degree Burglary, Kidnapping, Possession of a Weapon in a Violent Crime and High and Aggravated Breach of Peace.

Four more warrants were served on Mr. Hurley yesterday by the Laurens County Sheriff’s Office. They include two charges of Pointing and Presenting a Firearm at a Person, Unlawful Neglect of a Child and Ill Treatment of Animals.

Colton Hurley is now also accused of pointing a firearm at his girlfriend during the alleged assault for which he is facing an Attempted Murder charge. The 2nd Pointing and Presenting warrant alleges he also threatened another resident of Stiles Lane with the shotgun.

The Child Neglect warrant states Hurley placed his child at unreasonable risk of harm by pointing a gun at the mother of the child while she was holding it.

The Ill Treatment of Animals warrant states that Hurley shot and killed a horse by shooting it in the head Monday.

Bond was denied on all nine charges during arraignment yesterday. Colton David Hurley remains in the Laurens County Detention Center.
