COOKEVILLE – Special Agents from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation have obtained indictments for a man accused of firing a weapon at police officers earlier this year.
On March 8th, at the request of 9th District Attorney General Russell Johnson, TBI Agents began investigating the circumstances of an officer-involved shooting involving the Harriman Police Department. During the course of the investigation, Agents developed information that two officers encountered Nathan Manis during the course of responding to a disturbance call, during which Manis produced a handgun and fired upon the officers. The officers returned fire, striking Manis once.
On Tuesday, the Roane County Grand Jury returned indictments, charging Manis, 26, of Harriman, with two counts of Aggravated Assault and two counts of Reckless Endangerment with a Deadly Weapon. This afternoon, Agents served Manis, who remains in the custody of the Roane County Jail on unrelated charges.
