Charges Against Crumley Dropped

Crumley, 58, was charged with reckless endangerment, evading arrest, failure to yield to blue lights and sirens and reckless driving. “It seemed the decent thing to do in light of his medical condition," Baugh said.  Crumley is receiving hospice care, the Johnson City Press reports.
