Man indicted for assault
A Middlesboro man has been indicted on a first-degree assault charge.
Christopher David Lawson, 37, was indicted on the charge for an incident that took place nearly a year ago. He allegedly operated a motor vehicle while under the influence of drugs and was involved in a car crash. The wreck caused serious injury to Bobby Baker.
Due to his injuries, Baker remained in the University of Tennessee Hospital until December 2011. He was then transported to Lee Nursing and Rehabilitation. Baker passed away as a result of his injuries on April 30, the indictment said.
Lawson was also indicted on the charge of operating a motor vehicle under the influence. Witnesses during the hearing included Det. Kevin Goodin and assistant chief Gary Lambdin of the Pineville Police Department.
