Sheriff’s deputies have arrested a Greene County man in connection with a shooting incident that reportedly left him with a minor wound to his head.
Deputies arrested Cody Buck, 27, on charges of one count each of aggravated assault and second-degree battery. Both are Class D felonies.
According to a probable cause affidavit sworn by Lt. Ashley Worcester of the department’s Criminal Investigation Division, the arrest came about as a result of a June 26 incident. On that date, Buck allegedly got into an argument with his father, the victim. The incident then became a physical altercation in which Buck reportedly struck the victim in the face and then pulled a firearm on him.
Law enforcement was called but by the time deputies arrived Buck had left the scene. Later that evening law enforcement was called once again because another altercation between the two individuals began, and the victim got a firearm for self-defense. Buck came towards the victim, according to the affidavit, at which time the victim’s gun went off and the bullet grazed across the top of Buck’s head. His injuries were not fatal, so he was released from the hospital.
According to the Greene County Detention Center, Buck was incarcerated on July 9. Worcester said Buck was initially released on his own recognizance to receive medical attention, after which deputies picked him up. “In effect,” she said, “his OR [own recognizance bond] was revoked.”
Bond for Buck is to be set in district court today.
