Grand Jury indictments are handed down by the District/County Attorney's office. Not just anyone can run to the courthouse and file an indictment. You can go file an accusation or complaint, but these will normally be taken to the grand jury to see if there is enough evidence to take it to trial.

WHITLEY CITY — A Tennessee man is facing no less than seven counts after leading three Kentucky Vehicle Enforcement officers on a foot chase following a routine traffic stop last September.

Broxton — a passenger in the vehicle stopped by KVE Officer of Dwight Sutton — ran barefoot from officers across US 27, up over an embankment and ultimately onto Southern Highway in Strunk.
