The Lawrenceburg man charged with carrying two firearms on Anderson County Middle School property last September was indicted in December by the Anderson County Grand Jury, according to documents on file in the county courthouse.
William Whetzel, 20, of 1042 Dan Drive was indicted on two counts of unlawful possession of a weapon on school property, receiving stolen firearms and carrying a concealed deadly weapon.
Whetzel was seen by school personnel outside of the building carrying a shotgun and had a handgun up his sleeve. He was also reportedly carrying a gas can.
Whetzel was also charged Dec. 14 with DUI, second offense by Deputy Brian Boggs of the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office.
He was arrested again Dec. 22 for driving on a suspended DUI license.
The DUI arrest occurred on Alton Station Road when Whetzel was pulled over by Boggs, who wrote in a citation that Whetzel admitted drinking beer and taking “several shots of whiskey.”
Boggs reported that Whetzel refused breath and blood tests.
Whetzel remains incarcerated in the Shelby County Detention Center on a $5,000 cash bond.
