Among those indicted was Eremy Lee Poafpybitty, also known as Chooch. Poafpybitty, 33, is from Bunch, and was indicted for assaulting a U.S. Postal employee with a deadly and dangerous weapon.
The Indictment alleges that on or about July 24, the defendant, did knowingly, intentionally, and forcibly, with the use of a deadly and dangerous weapon- a knife- assault, oppose, impede, intimidate, and interfere with and did inflict bodily injury to an employee of the U.S. Postal Service while in and on account of the performance of official duties. The crime is punishable by not more than 20 years imprisonment, a fine up to $250,000 or both.
The charges arose from an investigation by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.
