Jason Attebury

Attorney Jim Greene joined Jason Attebury at a preliminary hearing in December. A grand jury indicted Attebury this week on seven counts, including kidnapping his mother.

A Hopkins County grand jury has indicted a Manitou man on seven counts of terrorizing his mother.

Indictments unsealed Wednesday adds a seventh charge to the six that Jason Attebury, 43, has faced since December. He’s now accused of being a persistent felony offender.

Authorities say Attebury went wild after drinking heavily on Saturday, Dec. 7. A Hopkins County detective said Attebury assaulted his mother, then grabbed the gun in her home and fired several rounds in the kitchen.

Attebury reportedly called himself a “monster” as he bit his mother and forced her to apologize on her knees to a photo of her late husband. The mother was slightly injured, the detective said, and ran away after Attebury forced her to drive to a liquor store.

Attebury was arrested three days later at the home he shared with his mother.

The grand jury confirmed the six earlier charges against Attebury. They are kidnapping, second-degree assault, first-degree wanton endangerment, possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, third-degree terroristic threatening and operating on a suspended or revoked license.

Attebury is held on $100,000 cash bond.
