Timmy Bowman facing additional charges

VERSAILLES, Ind. — Timmy Bowman, the man police say shot at them while they were responding to a domestic disturbance back in October near Holton, will now be facing an additional charge of Attempted Murder.

Ripley County Prosecuting Attorney, Ric Hertel, says that Bowman was initially charged with Pointing a Firearm and Domestic Battery.

No officers were injured during the exchange of gunfire. Bowman was flown from his home the night of the incident and transported to a Cincinnati hospital.

After being released from the hospital, he was incarcerated in the Hamilton County Jail where he remained until being transported to Ripley County.

Bowman’s initial hearing was November 21 in Ripley County Superior Court where bond was set at $500,000 cash.

Hertel said that the decision to elevate the charge came after discussions with Indiana State Police detectives who worked the case.
