STANFORD - Robert I. Muse, the man allegedly shot in the face by a former girlfriend Nov. 12, was indicted in a Lexington federal court on multiple drug and weapon charges this month, five days before being shot and years after multiple domestic violence charges were repeatedly brought against him, court reports show.
Muse was arrested on the federal charges Nov. 16 by state police trooper Clyde Bertram.
"We located him in a residence on Angel Ridge," said Bertram. When asked if Muse cooperated, Bertram said he did not attempt to evade police and was not armed at the time of the arrest.
The indictment charges Muse with three counts of cocaine distribution, two counts of possession of cocaine and marijuana with intent to sell, three counts of possession of a controlled substance, possession of a firearm while drug trafficking and three counts criminal forfeiture.
According to the indictment, Muse was carrying a loaded .40 caliber Glock, a semi-automatic pistol, "during and in relation to the drug trafficking crimes."
