MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – A Bibb County grand jury indicted 20-year-old Kenyae Brown Tuesday for crimes he committed against deputies last year.

Brown is now officially charged with two counts of obstruction of an officer, three counts of violation of street gang terrorism and prevention act, escape, and giving false information to a law enforcement officer.

Macon Judicial Circuit District Attorney David Cooke announced the deputies involved in the June shooting have all been cleared of any wrong doing. The GBI investigated the incident that involved deputies Angela Endsley and Patrick Robinson.

It happened on June 19, 2014 near the Fort Hawkins Liquor Store. Deputies were responding to a loitering complaint.

Cooke says Brown resisted arrest by struggling with deputies and then took off running.

"Based upon all of the evidence collected, no charges will be filed against deputy Robinson or any other deputies involved in this case," said Cooke. "We went over these facts with a fine tooth comb and at the end there was only one logical conclusion and that is that deputy Robinson reasonably feared for his safety."

Cooke added that any time a deputy is involved in a shooting the GBI is called in to investigate.
