Man arrested for attempted murder indicted on lesser charges

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - An Angelina County man originally charged with attempted capital murder has been indicted by a Grand Jury, but on two lesser charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Loyde Waggoner was arrested in June after beating two women in Hudson.

He had fled the scene in one of the victim's cars, leading police on a chase.

That's when Waggoner rolled the car and was taken into custody.

Waggoner has remained in jail since his arrest.  His bond for the new charges set by the Grand Jury is now 200-thousand dollars.
