Ex-trooper indicted for speeding, reckless driving in fatal wreck

A former Georgia State Patrol Trooper has been indicted on misdemeanor charges of speeding and reckless driving for his role in a September 2015 crash that killed two teenage girls.

A grand jury this week heard a case against Anthony “A.J.” Scott for a second time this year. When presented the first time back in February, a grand jury declined to indict Scott on felony charges of homicide by vehicle in the first degree, two counts of serious injury by vehicle, and one count of violation of oath by a public officer.

The indictment results from the evening of September 26th of 2015, when Scott driving northbound on US-27— reportedly at a speed of more than 90 miles per hour— slowed down then collided with a Nissan Sentra carrying four teenagers.

Scott— who is a Buchanan City Councilman— could face up to a year behind bars and/or a $1,000.
