NASHVILLE – A joint investigation has led to the indictment of a Pulaski man in connection to a fire that occurred in Giles County earlier this year.

On May 21st, at the request of 22nd District Attorney General Brent Cooper, TBI Special Agents joined Tennessee Fire Investigative Services and the Pulaski Police Department in investigating a fire that occurred at a home in the 400 block of Jones Street in Pulaski the previous day. A female resident of the home sustained injuries and was transported to the Vanderbilt Burn Center for treatment.  During the course of the investigation, Agents determined that Timothy Shane Medley (DOB 10/6/76) was the individual responsible for starting the fire. Further investigation revealed that Medley used an accelerant to set his daughter’s wheelchair on fire while she was in it.

This week, the Giles County Grand Jury returned indictments charging Medley with one count of Aggravated Assault, one count of Abuse of an Adult, one count of Felony Reckless Endangerment, one count of Reckless Aggravated Assault, and one count of Burning Personal Property. On Thursday, Medley was arrested and booked into the Giles County Jail on a $22,000 bond.
