LANCASTER - Three members of a Garrard County family were indicted on charges of assault and complicity to assault last week, a result of Jerry Dick's alleged Jan. 19 assault of Garrard County High School basketball coach Cecil Combs.
Dick, 43, of 412 Nina Ridge, was indicted on charges of third-degree assault of a school official, while his wife, Tammy Dick and son Michael, 18, also of Nina Ridge, were indicted on charges of complicity to third-degree assault.
The incident was reportedly over Michael Dick quitting the team. He had been a senior forward for Combs.
The Dicks reportedly approached Combs in his office during practice. A struggle ensued when Jerry Dick allegedly began to choke Combs from behind.
According to a criminal complaint made by Combs, Jerry Dick put Combs in a headlock, "choked him until he almost passed out," and twisted his arm behind his back.
