BEND, OR -- A Redmond man was indicted by a Grand Jury, this week, on several charges relating to a crash that sent him and four others to the hospital, last summer. According to the District Attorney, 24-year-old Shawn William Seagraves Hall had been drinking at a bonfire party east of town before he drove off with four passengers.
D.A. John Hummel said in a written statement, "We have a bonfire party culture in our local youth community that has to end. We need to impress upon our kids that driving 20 miles out of town to drink in the middle of nowhere puts them and their friends at risk of injury and death."
Seagraves Hall is charged with assault, reckless endangering, reckless driving and driving under the influence and is due back in court April 10.
