Dr. Glover escapes indictment
Road rage charge not pursued by grand jury

Grand jurors chose not to indict a doctor and his wife for a road rage incident on Christmas Day which allegedly erupted after a wreck in downtown McMinnville.
The doctor, Dannie Glover, saw the most serious charge of assault not make it out of the grand jury room as jurors opted not to indict him on the count. The grand jury did, however, indict the doctor on the charge of leaving the scene of an accident – a minor misdemeanor usually settled by fine and restitution. Charges against his wife, Renee Glover, were not pursued by the grand jury and her case is effectively dismissed.
The alleged victim, Beverly Meeks, told police Glover backed into her car with his Ford Ranger as he was leaving a home on West Main Street.
“I asked ‘What are you doing?’” Meeks recalled saying after getting out of her car following the minor crash.
She claims Mr. Glover was immediately aggressive.
“He got out of the vehicle and came at me,” Meeks told the judicial commissioner in her sworn statement seeking the assault warrant against the couple. “He was irate and pushed me in the chest.”
Meeks said the physician pushing her in the chest was doubly bad because she had undergone heart surgery and had stents inserted. She said she then called 911 but the doctor tried to grab her phone, resulting in her getting a mark over her eye. She noted at that point she was confronted by Mrs. Glover who allegedly hit her in the forehead and called her a name.
Police reported the Glovers were nowhere to be found when they arrived to take a report, thereby leading to the indictment against the physician for leaving the scene.
