A Shelbyville man already jailed for having fired shots at a sheriff's deputy was indicted July 8 on charges filed previous to the alleged shooting.

Jesse Andrew Loving, 19, of 7609 Hempridge Road was inducted on charges of first-degree criminal mischief, fourth-degree assault (domestic), violation of a protective order, and third-degree terroristic threatening.

Court records state that Loving is charged March 24 with intentionally damaging his live-in girlfriend's car and assaulting her.

Loving previously had been indicted May 20 on charges of attempted murder stemming from an incident April 8 in which he fired shots at Shelby County Sheriff's Deputy Brian Miller, who was trying to serve him with a warrant on the on those earlier charges.

Officials at the circuit clerk's office said they do not know why he was not indicted on the older charges first.

After Loving fired shots at the deputy, he fled on foot, causing an all-night manhunt involving several police agencies before turning himself in the next morning.

He has been lodged in the Shelbyville Detention Center under a $25,000 cash bond.
