Madisonville City Alderman James Kevin Bledsoe was recently charged with reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon — reportedly a vehicle — and two counts of aggravated assault.

He was indicted on the charges by the Monroe County Grand Jury during its June term.

According to the indictment, on or around April 20 of this year, Bledsoe “unlawfully, intentionally or knowingly” threatened three people with his vehicle, allegedly causing them “to reasonably fear imminent bodily injury by the use or display of a deadly weapon.”

Bledsoe was released on $20,000 bond with a court date that was set for Monday, June 22, at 9 a.m.

Bledsoe had also been indicted last November for an incident that allegedly took place last August where he was charged with two counts of reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon, a gun.
