Charles Richard Anderson Jr. has been sent to the grand jury on charges of assault, reckless endangerment, possession of marijuana, vandalism and third-offense driving on a revoked license.

A man who ran out of his shoes while trying to escape has been bound on numerous charges for assaulting a woman during an attack of paranoia.
The man, Charles Richard Anderson Jr., 28, has been sent to the grand jury on charges of assault, reckless endangerment, possession of marijuana, vandalism and third-offense driving on a revoked license. He is currently behind bars because his probation was violated as a result of his recent arrest.
Anderson faces charges after he allegedly had a meltdown during a stop to get gas in Morrison. “He was in the passenger seat and got in the driver’s seat and took off while (the victim) was pumping gas,” sheriff’s investigator Steven Carpenter said.
The woman was able to get in the vehicle but soon wished she had not.
“Mr. Anderson kept saying they had set him up and the police were after him,” Carpenter alleges, noting the victim tried to get out of the car but he would not let her. He then punched her in the mouth.
“He was threatening to kill her and he thought every car he saw was the police," said Carpenter.
His paranoia escalated when they ran out of gas in Viola since he had taken off before they could get gas.
“He got out and took off running across a field,” Carpenter revealed. “While running he lost his shoes.”
Deputies later found his shoes and something else. Inside one of the shoes was a bag of marijuana.
When Anderson was caught, he admitted to driving the car at a high rate of speeding and nearly wrecking. He also admitted the shoes found in the field were his. A check revealed his license was revoked.
