A Hardy man was indicted by a Franklin County grand jury Monday for allegedly cutting a Chesterfield man with a machete in May.
James Lee Bond Jr., 47, is charged with two felony charges, malicious wounding and wounding a man in the commission of a felony.
Bond was also indicted on two misdemeanor charges, assault and battery and brandishing a machete, involving a second victim.
The incident occurred on May 26 in the Kroger parking lot at Westlake Towne Center when Bond, who was driving an Isuzu pickup truck, and two men in a Lexus were involved in a road rage incident that escalated into a physical altercation, according to Lt. Mark Sweeney with the Franklin County Sheriff's Office.
During the altercation, the driver of the Lexus was struck with a machete that Bond allegedly pulled out of the back of his pickup truck, Sweeney said.
The victim was transported to Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital for treatment, Sweeney added.
Bond was arrested later at the dumpsters on Scruggs Road, Sweeney said. He told the deputies that the object in the back of his truck, a machete, was a tire iron.
An indictment is not a finding of guilt, but it is a determination by jurors that enough evidence exists to warrant a trial.
