Frank Lumpkin III, accused of aggravated assault in the October 2008 shooting of a teen, was no-billed today by a Muscogee County grand jury.
Lumpkin, 51, was accused of following his allegedly stolen vehicle to a Fort Benning Road gas station on Oct. 21.
The driver of the Lincoln Navigator, in the vehicle with two others, tried to leave and wrecked the SUV in the station’s parking lot. He ran toward the back of the convenience store, and Lumpkin allegedly followed and told him to stop.
Frank Martin, Lumpkin’s attorney, has said his client attempted to detain the teen, who he said had a firearm. Lumpkin fired a shot, and the teen again ran, collapsing in a ditch, Martin said.
Lumpkin was released from jail on a $2,500 bond on a charge of aggravated assault.
