Published 7:57 am Wednesday, June 14, 2017
A warrant has been issued for Jerry Mathes after he failed to appear in Boyle County Circuit Court Tuesday. Charges against Mathes stem from an Oct. 24, 2014, altercation with a customer involving a handgun at his former business, Jerry’s Body Shop.
Danville Police officers were called to Jerry’s Body Shop at about 11 p.m. the night of the alleged incident. Mathes and Ricky Cole, a customer at the time, were allegedly engaged in a fight. Cole had suffered a gun shot wound.
Mathes faces charges of assault; possession of a controlled substance (cocaine); and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Also in court was Marion Fisher, who was apprehended in July 2015 and accused of kidnapping Sharonna Harmon, whom he was dating at the time. Fisher is also accused of attempting to flee police and resisting arrest, as well as wanton endangerment, drug charges and driving under the influence.
A trial had been scheduled and delayed; Fisher is expected to enter a guilty plea at 1:30 p.m. on July 6.
Of the 183 cases in the Boyle County Circuit Court Tuesday, there were:
• six cocaine-related charges;
• 14 fentanyl-related charges;
• 55 methamphetamine-related charges;
• 24 heroin-related charges;
• nine unspecified-drug-related charges;
• one marijuana-related charge; and
• 44 charges of possession of drug paraphernalia.
Some individuals faced multiple charges and some have multiple active cases.
